    In my opinion they'd look better if the melted wax near the flam was prettier also maybe have something else in the frame... not just the candle.

    What's up with the second pic? It's really weird in a cool sorta way. The candle is like cut off, but there''s a drip of wax where the rest of the candle should be. oh hang on... are you holding the candle side on?

    Maybe try and different coloured candle too. Something richer would have a nice impact. I like the way the wax glows in the second one.

    Good start, do a couple more and post them.

    The wax glow is cool. I like the idea of a colored candle. What about maybe blowing the flame gently before you snap the shutter so that it's like wavy or something. Also I'd hold it way out in the middle of your room instead of next to the wall so that you can't see any of the background.

    These two shots just look like a couple of candles.
