Great pov, Rick, very well captured and presented. I would never have guessed what it was if you hadn't explained Smile Carol

Interesting capture and well seen. Took me a while to 'see' it. I love intriguing shots. The only thing I may have done post photo would have been to use my 'air brush' tool on the base of the lamp as it is rather grainy. Can you see the brown coloured circle behind all the tea lights? I think it may help the lights to 'pop'

Thank you Carol Smile

I do see what you mean about the base Judith and actually I did make a start at removing the base but it seemed to make the lights look like they were just floating in the air, so I changed it back again. I do appreciate your comments though and agree that doing something with the base is needed but not sure what exactly Smile
Or have I maybe misunderstood and you mean to smooth the base to make it less grainy?
This was shot at iso 1000 as the church lighting was very dull.

Really nice image. I like the apparent border effect the shot, well done. Makes a really nice abstract.

This is rather nice. Shows how to use spot metering correctly to get spot on exposure - pun! I'm not keen on the border - a simple white line suites me better - rarely keen on jazzy borders unless they are directly linked to the subject.

Ah, I see - not a border at all. It does actually look like one, though, until you explained.
