The candle was the only source of light.

I love the warmth and the lighting of this picture. I do, however, find myself wishing that the shadow of her nose wasn't so dominant. Perhaps moving the candle would have ruined the effect.


Composition-wise, I might have kept the glass holding the candle clear of her hand. Otherwise, this is a lovely photo.

Well for just playing around you got a good shot! I do have to say that the shadow is a distaction and maybe even the glass. I would also say I love the lighting and the look that the model has. Very nice eyes and expresion. Keep playing and let us see somemore!

Just looked at you candels folder. You have some real nice photos in it. Looks to me like your doing more then playing with photography. Keep it up.

In my opinion the candle is unecessary and distracting from the model, you obviously used side lighting from the right, the only other problem I see is the nose shadow, it could have been softened a little by using a small amount of front lighting, very interesting technique.

Two candles on the right, one candle on the left. Or one candle on the right and a mirror at 45 degrees on the left. A blue cooling filter would help to balance light temperature. I think candle in the picture enhances the mood.
