    I'd suggest a crop down to just the candles - no structure or ceiling showing. Great find and right on theme and most importantly you have the reds under control.

    A lovely tribute, beautifully captured. The red is really vibrant.

    Great composition, and certainly is "red"!

    Yes I like it. At first I thought it would be even better to go in closer and not have any floor, wall or shelving shown but you probably did the right thing because you are just far enough away so that the inscriptions are not readable (and if they were they would distract).

    Well composed and very red! Interesting.

    A good subject and, no doubt, difficult conditions for photography. I guess you tried a tighter crop and rejected it?

    Nicely framed. Lot of glorious red filling the picture. I might have decreased the brightness a bit. The lights and red color would still prevail nicely.

    Interesting suggestion, Jade O. Thanks.

    Holy! (Maybe a little telephoto would yield sharpness throughout, or alternately, I would have tried going tight and tried a less "common" angle, maybe shooting across the tops of a row of "O's", something hinted at in the bottom row on display here.
