tripod set up. shoot in a enclose room, not even with air con turn on.
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.

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

Thanks for all the replies. My salute to all of u :)
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.
