Burning Candle II by ChristophMaier Burning Candle II by ChristophMaier
The candle proves somewhat uncooperative :( Better setup yet this time the candle just did not want to hold still enough. Still nice detail and interestingly enough a completely different look even though both are near 1:1 macro shots.

Thank you :) I used my Sigma 150mm 2.8 OS Macro for it. It's a really stunning macro lens and has never let me down.

Thank you :)
I am always amazed myself at the little details you can find in a macro shot. So often I see things that I never saw even while taking the picture myself. This one was especially interesting because i shot it while the camera was connected to my PC. This way it was much easier to focus onto the right place for the stacked shots. I used Canons remote control software for it. Fun thing is that you actually use the live view for the focus. Since you get a much larger picture this way you can really see the wick burning. It's a rather fascinating sight.
