    Good one Mick

    I'd say false or the less amazing upside down image.

    For me the hand appears to be held in an unnatural way.

    Totally fake -- there's no way that writing was really on the wall. :-)

    Very convincing image. You'll have to post a "making of".

    I would say... False. The wax drip appears to be going the wrong way. Also I agree with the hand position - it seems wrong.

    The dark 'drip' running 'up' the side of the candle is the biggest give-away for me

    This is the amazing up-side down card, with the 180 degree photo.
    Definately fake.

    Damn that rotten wax drip. It appears to me that I can get some people at least thinking and wondering and others who just don't believe and then there are those of us who know about Australia being on the bottom of the globe and how gravity really works ! Well it was fun working out just how to do it and wasting 3 candles before I figured out how to bend one without it snapping !

    This goes to show that sometimes the obvious answer is the correct answer.

    Very interesting the biggest give away is the flame would not face down it would curl up as heat rises

    False
    C&C Welcome edit just let me know what was done
