I like this! Nice muted colors, nicely sized out of focus orbs, the main figures are all in focus, and an obvious candle signifying the theme. A good concept carried to a very successful completion. Well done!

A little under exposed and I want you know if Id like it better with the candle framed on the right side just so the flame isn't right next to the hands.

I love how warm it is.

Thanks for your comments :-)

I kind of like the candle where their hands are, maybe it's symbolic. Also I purposely underexposed it as part of my vision for what I was trying to convey, which is a representation of an intimate and private moment between a couple in love. I didn't want the figurine to appear properly lit. I wanted them to appear in the dark, with just the glow from the candle and them (though I did use a soft bounced flash to expose them).

This is one of my more "artistic" projects and as such, there is more room for expression.

Love the photo and I totally get that dimly lit feel and the personal nature of the tone. Have to agree with the other poster about the location of the candle. Completely distracts from part of the message. Though I might suggest moving it off to the left to the point where you get the flame in the shot, and just to the left of the flame, but not the entire left side of the candle. That would allow you to see both sets of hands in their placement.

Awesome though and I wouldn't hesitate to frame that one.

Nice use of the bokeh in the background. I read your comment about the placement of the flame. I didn't see want you wanted me to see initially, but I don't know how I would improve it.

Interesting comments about the flame… After reviewing this image a few more times, I like the candle flame exactly where it is. I feel that by placing the flame centered in the angle of a triangle formed by their arms, the clutching hands (intimacy) become the focal point.
