It's a match in a bulb :-D

It's the same bulb I've used in my other bulb shots.

Took a lot of tries and messing about to get this final image I'm happy with. Hope you enjoy.

Crop, curves, a little +sat on the orange, sharpening. I cloned out some imperfections on the bulb and a little smoke which escaped. Neat Image, resize, and SFW.

The lighting on the bulb is perfect, it creates a great frame for the flame of the match. I really love the concept behind this one.

Simple but very clever! I'm not sure if this has been done before but I've never seen it and you've capture it exremely well. I love the clarity and colours. Did the glass eventually break from the heat or did the flame run out of oxygen? I'm not sure if you could have prevented the reflection (shirt with writing?) but it doesn't take away from the photo as far as I'm concerned. Well done.

Great idea, but I wish the light bulb was cleaner.

I like it! Bet you had to snap that one quickly before the glass turned black.
