Still life with fire #2

This is a triple exposure. The first exposure was in total darkness to catch the computer screen (1/8 second at f5.6). The second is with an incandescent light overhead to add some detail to the computer keyboard, jack-o-lantern and skull and to add an orange cast to the scene (1/15 second at f8). The third exposure was of a moving flame (oil candle attached to a black metal rod - approximately six seconds at f16. The computer screen was turned off to prevent overexposure of the photo on the screen). The photo on the computer screen is from my blog post of October 23.

Cool shot and nice execution. Those multiple exposures are often tricky and you pulled it off perfectly.

Nice job.
