Hi david, .. you've got excellent idea to catch this statuette with idealised shapes in this way, .. I mean putting stress not only on it but also on its shadows; .. it calls attention as it's shot with "real" model . Well lit and coloured. However I'de give smaller part to the candle.

regards,

It is lovely David, the candle gives such a lovely warm light, did you use any other form of lighting ?
Kind regards Maria

Maria, there was some dim ambient lighting in the room, without this I think the shadows cast by the candle would have been too harsh. I did make an error though - I think I shot this with the wrong lens. My SMC Takumar 135 F3.5 would have produced a better result as it is sharper and has better out-of-focus effects than the 55-300mm.

Thank you for your comment and to everyone else that has commented on this picture.

Love it but, the Christmas candle somewhat reduces the seriousness of the shot. Plain candle would have been better I feel. How's that for being fussy?

I thought the christmas candle would add a seasonal feel to the shot - however I tend to agree having read your comment. Thanks very much for taking the trouble to add your thoughts.
