Wow, this is indeed magical. So mysterious and fantasy-like at the same time. The bokeh is beautiful, and really enhances the fairy/fantasy look.

The focus on this picture is very nice. It includes a lot of things and blurs certain things slightly. The lighting is also a very nice mysterious blue. The darkness of it really enhances and draws out the candle and light bokeh in the background. The lantern and tips of the book is also very nicely done. They are clearly seen.

The colors. My, my, so magical! :heart: Blues, greens, whites, wow they're amazing! Makes me think of something out of a fantasy book! It really draws emotions like curiosity and the idea that something happened here before that makes you want to know what.

I especially love the concept of the photo. It looks as if a lantern were set down on a book (which it is ;) ) and then the subject had to leave. Almost like clues left behind. The infocusness of the candle also draws the viewers attention. It looks like evening yet the background is so light. Certainly an eye-catcher!

I find that a large majority of your photos include books or clocks. Was it intentional?
