Matches were bound to show up in several versions. Like this though...the blue smoke really sets it off..

So is that the trick to getting the moment it ignites....place another match behind it? I would love to be able to take a photo like this, you should do a tutorial. I love the blue smoke.

Part of the problem, as I discovered when experimenting with this very type of image, is that it is very hard to keep the constant movement of the flame in focus with respect to the rest of the image. It's also hard to capture the density of the flame on camera properly. You've done well here.

This photograph is wonderful for showing what the eye often misses. I wouldn't normally imagine the blue smoke (or fumes/very hot flame??) on the flame of a match, but here it is and the colours complement each other well. Composition wise, I'm not sure if this was framed/cropped afterwards too closely - the bottom blue curve looks cropped off (even if it isn't there, I would like to imagine that curl sweeping from the left, down and around up the right side).
