Rob Prideaux has a whole collection of images associated with fire at the link below.   While he doesn’t specify how exactly this image was created, he does state that with the exception of only a few touchups, they are all real images, not created by CGI.  Fire is obviously aesthetically pleasing, but he takes it to a new level, by using physics to create new shapes – typically fire isn’t in a ring as it is in the image above.  By burning real objects and capturing the image from above, the flames look different from what we usually see.  The natural convection of the air is pulling the flames towards the camera, instead of vertically up the image.

    1st place. There is a beautiful mixture of curved and linear geometry. The fire seems so alive, yet there is a sense of rigidity with some faint rectangular lines.

    2nd place. The ripples and curls are so inviting when pictured, but of course one would not want to actually join them. But maybe I don’t need a head of hair.

    Second place. I would have given this first place if the fire was in a perfect circle; nonetheless, this flame ring is beautiful. I also like the hidden octet in the background. The combination of sharp edges from the octet and the smooth curve of the flame gives this image beautiful.
