It's really quite hard to hold a burning match in the narrow plane-of-focus afforded by f/2.8 and an extension tube. Mind you, it's even harder to hold it still in the longer exposure time demanded by a smaller aperture.
For Macroday's 'Fire' challenge.
Detail: Nikon 105mm 1:2.8 macro, 52.5mm extension tube, f/2.8, 1/50s, ISO 800.

Beautifully done - I hope no gear was scorched in the process!

Thanks everybody. No fingers, gear, or furniture (the sofa was the backdrop) were harmed in the making of this image. Although I'm pretty sure my fingers came pretty close to being burnt several times.
