Gas light...


Well-known Member
Been short on ideas this month. Was browsing the web, and saw something similar to this, so thought I would give it a go. Had to keep the shutter speed short to get a crisp flame, but in doing so the flames were to dull, so I had to up the ISO, unfortunately that has introduced some noise into the flames.

Camera: Canon S5 IS
Focal Length: 16mm
Shutter Speed: 1/10 Sec
Aperture: F/3.5
ISO: 200
Date / Time: 20/11/2010 18:36

In Elements 9, adjusted levels, resized, boarder added, sharpened.



On subjects like this Ian I think the noise is pretty "Organic" and actually adds something - nice idea - well executed - love the "almost" symmetry in it too - there goes that "Organic" thing again :smashin:

Definitely the right choice to enter too IMO BTW :)

+1 on the noise, I think it adds a nice atmosphere to the shot. I think the only thing I would've tried to do is rotate the image maybe a degree or two clockwise to give the symmetry alignment and greater impact. Lovely shot and PP.

Fingers and camera are ok (though I did have to be quick taking the photo), though I did get a singed eyebrow.
