Many thanks everyone for comment votes and awards for the Robin yesterday, having read the magazine Digital Photo I saw the article on capturing a match as it combusted, it was a bit awkward lighting the match and firing the shutter but these are my attempts.

Great study of a match flame. Have you ever read Faraday's old book, The Chemical History of a Candle?

amazing serious. Like #2 and #3 best, as they clear show the source of the flames, and the flames form a beautiful shape

I like this experiment--would like to try it, would a match lighter help? The images have wonderful color and shape!

Some excellent shapes, Trev. v3 is my favourite, very much like a calla lily. v4 looks a little cramped though. Very nicely done... and I think it will get peoples' creative juices flowing.

V1 for me Trevor - slightly more abstract.
Excellent exposure for a difficult exercise.

Using my imagination. which has been known to work overtime, I like V2. The match head is a little face and the flame 2 big ears - a friendly alien perhaps.Grin
