At home. Two small candles on the right side of the camera. I had to use higher ISO as my son could not stay without moving (blinking, hand movement etc). Cropped the bottom part to avoid the shadow from the candle / holder.

More of a lighted shot than a creative use of lighting, this image falls short of meeting the challenge criteria in several ways. While a good image, the author might have chosen to use the available lighting to create an effect rather than just a image that is actually of snapshot quality. A little more thought would have helped as there are possibilities in this image such as a macro which would not only have met the criteria, but have placed high.

Photo has a little too much yellow in it. Adjusting hue and saturation could help this.
