Had a power outage a couple of days back so lit up these candles and put em in a candle stand bolted to the wall, the effect it created in the dark prompted a few shots Smile

This is a very nice bright shot but you could up the contrast it would
make the brightness glow a not an make the over picture give a sense of warmth and maby put the brightness up little bit so the candle holders show more or you could completlety blank them out I hope this helps over all fantastic shot Smile

A well seen image, but even the ISO1600 was not enough in this lighting to hand hold a long lens even at the 75mm end - a bit soft. You really needed a support and longer shutter speed to crispen up the silhouette.

What I think often happens, and I do it regularly, then kick myself, is that you spot something which looks really good, and grab a shot. If it really is good, it's worth a bit of thought and technique.

Yes i believe you are right, the issue with this shot was that there was just no space to support a tripod and the subject was about 6 feet from the ground which again made it difficult to use the tripod Smile also due to the power outage i couldnt change the lens on the camera ,maybe i can re-create this again using a different lens say for example the canon 50mm 1.8??
