    I was so bored locked at home last night so had to figure out something to experiment :D

    All are with Sony G 18-105 PZ @ various FLs (from 36mm to 105mm), all ISO 100, f/18 and 4sec exposure...

    A slight issue with the 3rd candle that didn't want to cooperate :D

    Been there, done that.

    I like the single candles at the end.

    Since you asked and are OK with a simple honest answer, speaking only for myself personally...I didn't care for the ones with the star burst sort of flame halos...seemed a bit unnatural / artificial...just my .02 cents.
    But the flip side of my personal observation is a 5-star rating all the way for putting together such an experiment !!
    ( PS: In the first few photos, are those glass chess pieces? )

    Boredom often brings the best out of photography...
