I suppose someone has already suggested a Still Life Category?

One of many shots trying to get a decent smoke trail that went roughly where I wanted it to.

Cheers guys

I really like this, lovely collection of textures! I think you got the smoke trail just right, perfect diagonal from the wick of the candle to the watch - anyways, wish I had taken it!

Just spotted this beautiful series (from the Shepton Mallet antique thread) they are all superb and what a great collection of tat and ephemera, most excellent.

Only 1 small fault I can see with this .............. the smoke below the top leaf has a straight edge cut off

Yeah 'tis an odd one that but the original file is the same. If I drag it up I can see the smoke tailing off. Guess the light just didn't pick it up and I did drag the exposure down by half a stop in Capture One. Just have to do a bit of work for the print.

Cheers you lot for the comments and votes.

Besides the smoke, the smoldering wick is the extra cool (or perhaps hot) bit that makes it for me.
