Burning Candle by ChristophMaier Burning Candle by ChristophMaier
A macro of a burning candle, a 6 image stack and first attempt. I was a bit too slow unfortunately. It glowed much better in the beginning but setting up the shot took me a bit longer. Still, I think for a first attempt it looks pretty decent. Enjoy and make sure to view it at 100%

Suggester Says: " I love the way we can see the wick of the candle burning with those orange colors, and the flame surrounding it makes it an even more interesting picture."

Thank you :) This one is certainly one of my favorite macro pictures and like it so so often with macros I was surprised by the result myself. There are so many details hidden right under our noses that we never see. Really have to get back behind my camera again

Wow, I've never seen anything like this before!  I like how the focus is on the glow at the tip of the candle wick and the flame is more like a background.  Congratulations on the Daily Deviation -- you definitely deserve it.  :)

Thank you very much, that is very kind of you :)
It is certainly one of my most successful works for sure. And like so often the very first try was the most successful one as well. I retried it many times but was never able to really recreate the image.
Glad you enjoyed it :)

You're welcome.  Yeah, photography can be like that sometimes ... an initial snapshot can turn out better than a lot of carefully planned shots due to sheer luck.

Lovely! 
What kind of macro lens did you use? If you used one.

Thank you :) This was done with my SIGMA 150mm 2.8 OS Macro. Absolutely stunning lens if you ask me.
