Hello my friend... Happy New Year to you and your Loved ones....

I really like how you have captured the candles lights.... Have a wonderful night...


Hi Silke,
This is quite nice! You made a very nice arrangement and the lighting is very nice and soft. Good detail, love the material used...looks like burlap? I also like all the tiny flames reflections on the glass vases. Nice shooting Silke!

Best regards,

Happy New Year!

All the best to you and yours too, Silke. Nice, well thought out composition too, judging by the note... and, as a bonus, it's a very nice picture too look at ;o)).


A fantastic New Years shot! The candles have created some really interesting light on the flowers vase and glass. Since all light is comming from the bottom of the frame, this is a really new way to see things. I like the warmth and appreciate the wishes.
