This picture looks like it is a capture of the ripples spreading across the surface of a water body, but it reality, it is a picture of a lamp, taken through a chrome coated metal pipe.
This required the following items to achieve.
All that was required was to aim the camera down the pipe, aim the pipe at the flame and voila. Once captured, I applied some mild colour correction in the form of slightly increased contrast and a touch of curves(RGB) to reduce the overall brightness.

Summer. In Kuwait, that word signifies burning heat, burning wind, cats driven mad by the aforementioned burning head, and birds that try to huddle as close to the window as possible to get some brief respite. Fortunately for me, the latter makes for some great photo opportunities. But looking at the big picture, summer sucks. 41 degrees celcius outside at midnight, and 52 degrees at noon. Thank God for air conditioning!
