tealight twins



One thing I learned in the hiatus was how to set a custom white balance. Here, I did neither. I used presets. The bottom was incandescent for the recessed lighting above. The top, I used the preset for sunlight to give it a warmer tone. In the comments, which one do you like better?
(ISO 400, f/1.8, top 1/15s, bottom 1/60s)

I recognize after looking at the two more closely that the top photo isn't as sharp as it should be, most likely due to the long(er) exposure time. It seems a little out of focus too, but I'm not sure

They both look great! Even if the top photo is out of focus, it adds to the mood. I like it!

I think it depends where you are going to use the picture, they are both pretty,

I like the bottom because it looks more natural to me. I also think the bottom one has better focus.
