Challenge #622 - The Light of a Flame


Think: Candles, Lanterns, Oil-Lamps... or any other old-fashion illumination.
You can focus on the object, the source of the light. Or it can just be part of a larger scene... like a vigil, a birthday cake, a beach fire, or something safely larger.

Take a portrait where the flicker of a candle is there. Capture a setting lit by the glow of a lamp. Bring us the night-descent of a ski patrol. How about fire dancers from a luau?

You can even submit a Still Life shot with candle or lamp light... for Cory. ;-)a

Just about anything goes. I don't know what I'll like ("I can't define it, but I'll know it when I see it!")

Use your Title well.


Remember, if you post a photo, you may be the winner. Be prepared to host and judge a new challenge.

_______________

Thanks for joining in this week. I appreciate all of your Entries.

And the Winners are:

First: Corythosaurus with "Lantern Light"
___Liked the warm tones all around, and the composition was both simple and inviting.

Second: Maureen with "Gold on Gold"
___Nicely done. Somehow this photo is bold and strong, and at the same time relaxed and sets a calming mood. The one thing that tugged at me a bit, was the reflection in the mirror just did not harmonize the scene (perhaps lacking detail, or said differently, being a little dull/vague. not sure.). Still very close to being chosen.

Third: Trumper with "Helping Nature"
___Overall I liked this landscape shot. As for the challenge, would have liked to see the flames have a little more relevance in the scene. I viewed a crop of just the upper right corner, almost square, including part of the mound -- and that sort of composition would have brought the wildfire into focus for me.

So, the Fuse is lit for you Cory!

The Challenge is now closed.
Thanks to all who entered this week.
Results are about to be posted.

( I sure hope the proliferation of LED lighting has not forever erased the warm glow that shaped many a nights' relaxing moods. )

Congrats to Cory... I loved the cabin feeling of the shot! I am struggling to keep my camera functioning as it just doesn't want to settle on a focus point & hunts & hunts. I had a few other angles I did like better but had to settle on the one in focus. After I do my taxes I may be buying a G 16 or something close......

Thanks for the challenge this week, Carlo.

Thanks for hosting and judging Carlo. And, thanks for the first place selection. I found Trumper's entry very compelling. I'll have the new challenge up shortly.

In my photo, the lantern is sitting on another table I had built from old railroad boxcar flooring.

@Trumper ...said: "We just don't have naked flames here ,don't have a gas cooker even so apart from an emergency candle i was pretty stuffed."

@JimAskew ...said: "I just couldn't find a shot to enter last week...I was going to do a lantern shot but Cory beat me to table"

I was hoping we might get a side/profile shot where someone was lighting-up a pipe or cigarette or other.
Could have also submitted a 60's muscle car with side-pipes spurting flames! No?
Hell, I'd have accepted a casual portrait of someone's "Old Flame"*. Maybe named 'Amber', 'Blaise', or 'Ray', or "Mothman'

* from Merriam-Webster:
Synonyms of Flame: beloved, darling, dear, sweetheart, hon, honey, love, squeeze, sweet, sweetie, sweetie pieā€¦

@Maureen: 'Yes' indeed! Get thee to a cannery (or a Canon-ery).

@Cory: Somehow I thought your lantern was on the floor. That's a testament to your shot's angle/perspective and composition. Also, a tribute to your handywork in wood. (Next theme... tables?)
