I love the lighting on the bells, how some are in full light and others are hidden mostly in the shadows. I admire the flames on the candles. I adore the texture on the candle furthest back.

Amazing.

Nonsense! I'm just stating the truth. I really do enjoy the picture.

Although, I do admit that my comments do tend to come off extremely positive and sometimes seem like I'm sucking up. But the truth is that the comment is probably very tame compared to the comments my parents hear as I go through people's galleries xD

You're welcome!

Cliche in a good way though. Your still life shots have a very commercial quality to them which is good I think. If it were a diamond necklace, Rolex, etc. I could definitely see this being used around Christmas time. Maybe with some holly in front of the candles.

That's very nice to hear! I think you're quite right, however for commercial purposes it would be a lot more vivid. I don't really know the words right now but what i mean is that there would be a lot more to see in the picture other than just candles and a product.
What do you mean by holly?

From Wikipedia:

In many western cultures, holly is a traditional Christmas decoration, used especially in wreaths.

No problem. In ancient history it was also symbolical for fertility. Same with mistletoe, which is why people started kissing underneath it during the winter solstice.

Actually I read that online last week when researching the similarities between old pagan traditions and Christianity. Cool stuff.

Ah okay, so you're really interested in those kind of things. Cool! Was the research done just for yourself or for study, work, etc?
