    I like the way the sharper image is the shadow of the candle.

    The balance between light and dark is a nice yin and yang feel. Nice use of shadow.

    Strength- the linear quality and the curve of the material that the shadow is on. Distracting- perhaps catching the shot from the other side of the candle. Having the candle left, and shadow right. I find sometimes out of focus objects "feel better" on the left side, as it is like reading- we read left to right, so having the focus on the right sometimes takes on that punctuative character. I'm not sure I 'buy' the interaction here... for me more of a 'seasonal' photo. :)

    Bill the fabric and shadow add a rich texture and depth to this photo - but for me the candle is a bit distracting due to its focus. I wonder what this would look like with a real candle? (if you could take it safely)

    Or what if it were just an image of the shadow?

    That's an interesting thought, Carly.

    I wasn't feeling this image, until I cropped out the candle like Carly suggested. Without the hard plastic in my face, I could enjoy the texture of the curtain and, yes, another shadow. :) If that bulb was clear, what do you think its shadow would look like?
