Another shot for my club project. This was actually the highest vote getter of my entries, though none were awarded a prize.

SONY SLT-A77V 4/5 seconds F/13.0 ISO 200 300 mm (35mm equiv.)

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.

This likely needs one of those 'Don't try this at home' labels ! Surprised you missed out on a prize.

You don't see match boxes around much these days, so nice to see this. I like the match burning in this excellent image, giving light to the box.
