    Well actually I could have called it Hot Woman on Cocain To be fair I didn't have any control over the shape of the flame and the figure in it is just a lucky shot. I made a small fingersize bowl of tinfoil in which I poored some (I think you'd call it white spirit. In my younger years I knew the powdered milk stuff some people throw into their coffee gives quite nice bursts of flames when you poor it over a small fire. Well I didn't find any of that, but after some expirimenting with salt and pepper and stuff...powdered sugar seemed to work as well. So that's what you're seeing here.

    Settings: 100mm macro(don't think I used extension rings here), ISO 100, f10, 1/200s. One 430 EX2 flash on the left side in the back, about 1ft away at 1/64 power. A cardboard box with some tinfoil on the right front next to the lens to reflect the flash. Background was a simple piece of paper.

    Anyway, there are probably still a lot more and a lot better shots of fire...keep em coming!

    Hi everybody, and sorry for the delay -- was mainly due to the snow and ice which disrupted my two week trip around central Europe a bit.

    I've now chosen the finalists and informed Sheiky, as usual it wasn't easy and I could equally well have chosen a few other ones, but ...

    Anyhow, nice round of showing and sharing, now let's vote and on towards the next one ;-)

    Hehe...I suppose this was kind of expected - that photo is really great. (And as a bonus this should simplify things when it comes to arranging the next assignment/voting procedure ;-)

    Looks like we have a runaway winner here, nicely done. I'm quite surprised I was selected given all the other great entries, and even more surprised I managed to steal a vote away from Sheiky.
