When I saw the thumbnail I thought it was clouds, but they're flames. I think it's interesting that you've captured something so colourful and intense and turned it into a monochrome image so effectively. Well done.

I like this, except you should have put more focus on the one thorn, because you just see a couple popping up. Good job, though. :D

Thanks! It was... really hot, so I blame all errors on not being able to stay close enough *shifty* But yes, that is something I should do, next time.
