  • It is nice to actually see how the flame appears and where it comes from. The darkness below the flame is cool to see.

    The colors are what really stand out to me. You have nice contrasting colors between the yellow bottle and the blue flame! The image is a bit out of focus which I don’t actually mind, because of the aesthetic it fills the rest of the frame.

    Very cool. The gap between the fuel stick and the smoke is really cool. Interesting colors including the fuel stick and the blue smoke. Very cool laminar flow.

    Very nice show of the laminar layer being super clean! That’s cool that you were able to keep the turbulence so low

    I like the simplicity of the photo. It demonstrates the physics of flame well. good editing choice. is the flame bending?

    Laminer fuel candle is pretty nice. The flame is steady and unique. The top of the fuel sticker illustrated how the flame was generated.

    I like the color scheme going on in this photo! Have You considered cropping the photo to make it more symmetrical?

    I like how you included the source of the flame. It’s cool that it’s so tightly rolled because at first glance it looks like it might be shooting out of a blow torch nozzle. The dark space between the paper and the flame is also really interesting, it’s cool how it makes the flame look almost conically hollow at the base.

    This is a nice shot as the flame appears to be suspended in space. Did you consider cropping the fuel source out of the shot to better display this phenomenon? The gradient in the flame from black to blue is interesting.

    Very clean simple flame and the soft blue is very pleasing. I feel like there is a little to much negative space here though, so maybe do some cropping so the subject takes up more of the frame.

    I like the darkness at the base of the flame and the transition into the blue. I would like the candle more centered in the image with the black background

    I like this image! The color contrast between yellow/orange to the blue flame is really clear and nice. You show the flame well, and have a very crisp image. Did you just have a single lighting source?

    Very clear flame, like the heat you can feel off the image, with the hot blue flame. Did you try to crop the combustable out of the frame?

    I like the warm and cool colors along with the perfectly black background. I also like how it’s difficult to tell what is actually burning without the description. I think that it could benefit from centering it within the image, I don’t think the rule of thirds is really helping it in this case.

    I like the difference sharpness between the flow and the object. It helps to catch attention. Good choose to focus the object instead of the flow.

    Great image! The flame has a nice color and it’s cool to see the medium that is being burned in the frame. In the future try to get a shot that has a little better focus.

    I really like the color of the flame contrasting with the black ground and yellow paper. It’s interesting to see that gap right before the flame becomes visible.

    The blur on the burning paper is pretty cool! The fire is also very clear. Maybe the shot could be more centered or another cropping would center the image. Good Job!

    I like the pencil thin upward motion of the flame, adding the source of the flame helps the photo to tell a story. Nice editing with the background of the photo. Could be slightly higher resolution.

    I like how clear and clean the flame is and also its blue color helps make the image more visually pleasing. the only ting that bugged me was the roll of paper being present in the image, I would recommend cropping it out.

  • This image shows some great contrast between the background, flame and paper! I had no idea what was on fire until I read your comment but that is a beautiful flame from some paper. Out of curiosity was the original flame orange and edited blue? I feel like most paper burns orange!
