I shot a lot of lighters for this challenge using my new halogen lights. I broke a bulb, cut my finger, burned my arm, but had fun!! I picked one...hope you like it.

Beautiful image. IMHO I would try to run it in a filter utility to soften the sharpening. Great macro focus. Also, a black background negative space would enhance the definition of the colors.

Could of had some great reflections with one

Sweet shot. I wouldlike to see no empty space on the upper left corner. Other than that, great shot. Keep up the good work. 9

Great idea.

Could this be a convenience store display? I enjoy the close-up, stacked integration between the grey- mechanical/metalic and the coloured - fluid/plastic components of the image....... the lighters become something else besides lighters. 8

Very, very creative! Points for that. The background and lighter heads are the same color? Points for that! And points for keeping my attention long enough to appreciate it. joanns

One of my favorite pics because it is unique and creative. Good use of light and color. Bitz

I am a sucker for repetition in shots. Great colors. Great everything actually. I love it. Seems to me it is missing one lighter at the top left. 9

I like the colors and composition. The only small nit-pick I have is the crop at the top. I wish there was some way to crop it straight on the top like it is on the bottom. Nice pic nonetheless. karmat

Very nice color. I like the bubbles in the fluid. The lighting is really nice, clear and works well for the shot. Angle and framing/cropping are good, and the overall effect of the shot is nice. I think though that I would chose a different background. either that, or make it clear enough that we can see what we are looking at, if it is important to the shot. Overall though, a nice photo. Good luck in the challenge. ~Hbunch7187~

This is a neat perspective. I think it would work better with a different background. Nice job! - JB

Very unique. Only thing that I would have done differently is to stack the lighters up against a totally black background.
