K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge – Candlelight


This week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge prompt is “Quest for Fire.” I decided to go with a picture I’ve posted on my blog before, except this time it’s modified. At the time I shot it, I actually shot three as I often do, so I can be reasonably sure one of them is good. The first is a modified version of the one you may have seen before. I heightened the saturation to bring out the colour of the fire.

In the second one, the camera, for whatever reason, picked up the flame’s aura above it. I’m guessing it was due to the angle of the lens. I kind of like the black and white version.

The third and final one was out of focus. I call this the drunk version:


You can find the photo prompt here at Dale’s blog, and here at K’lee’s blog. Come and join in! It’s fun!!

  2. great photos. I love all three 🙂


  3. I like the first one. Is it a real candle? The flame looks so symmetrical. Did you use a long exposure? I have just started photography after I bought myself a DSLR. Thanks for alerting me to this challenge.


    • It is indeed a real candle. I took the pictures with my phone with no special settings. I’d love to get a “real” camera!
      Hope you join in next week! I’d love to see what you come up with. 😀


  4. Very cool – and very different emotions with each one.


  5. Fantastic, Linda! I like all three, but if I was allowed to only pick one, it’d be the first one. Excellent work and thanks for the pingbacks!!!


  6. I love the black and white — so pretty in all of them, though 🙂


  7. Nice photo, I like the first one best, but the black and white one is cool, too.


Don't hesitate - jump right in!
