    agree to above. I using close up filter, turn off the light, mount on tripod. use self timer for more stable shoot.

    below is my take.

    from your exif, most probably its wrong focus... 1/125s should be good enough unless wind is blowing crazily...

    actually off focus also looks nice too, or probably better

    maybe you can even add a small figurine as a silhouette or with rim lighting.

    looks like a huge flame in the horizon

    Should shoot in a dark room, so the image will only show the flame

    Here's one more. You can check the EXIF. ISO used is 200. I think PSE5 stripped this information when I resized the image. I used the wick as the focal point.
