Thanks so much, Everyone. It took me about 30 shot while lightly blowing on the candle to get the bent flame I wanted. It's a good thing I'm so full of hot air. :)

...never knowing who to cling to when the rain set in...
This image was well worth your 30 shot take, Paul!! We all know it's a task & a play on timing to capture a "hot flame" as this one is :-)!!! Excellent color, clarity & effect use in PS8!

I am playing 'catching-up' and I am sorry I missed this one when it was originally submitted (and now I have a sore finger after scrolling all-the-way-to-the-bottom !! LOL).
This is very effective Paul and I like the way you have drawn attention to the simple beauty of a candle.
Well done.
