Yeah.. Did you light the match yourself? I don't see how you could make such a nice picture with only one hand.. (But then again, you're the master at this sort of thing, so it's more like one of your hands has twice the skill as both of mind :-) ) Anyway, I love this picture and I wish you much luck in the contest with it.

how the....? i don't understand this sort of stuff. how could you possibly have done that? the timing is so perfect. and the background? how do you do that? did you take this picture in front of a green screen and then just change the background to black or what?

Iīm really glad for all your comments, thanks! When it comes to the photo technique i just used self-timer and i did light the match myself, all that in a dark room without background.

This is awesome!!!!! I know plenty of people have said it, but I thought I'd throw my two cents in! Again, you inspire me! I love your work so much that I'd probably faint if I saw you in a coffeeshop or could get your signature! Do you do any professional work in photography?

Hahaha!......i might faint myself, you are really nice. No i donīt have time to do professional work, itīs just a hobby for now. I might consider do some professional work now after your comments.....;-) Thank you!
