The dying flame

Sunday night was BBQ night... and after the dinner, we threw out the bigger pieces of coal, n waited for the smaller pieces to burn out. With nothing else to do, I picked up my phone n clicked a picture of the dying flame, n although a bit fuzzy, it did look pretty neat with a violet flame. Excited with the shade that appeared in my phone-camera, I rushed in n grabbed our point n shoot camera, but unfortunately it didn't come out the same way. I remember when I first bought my phone, I'd photograph anything n everything around me. Is this flame of photography in me dying??? I have often tried photographing the moon, n loads of other stuff that never come out as cool as they actually look. Though sometimes the camera captures stuff that the eye cannot... like in the case of a sunset at a beach, the picture of a canyon.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, I say it could be worth a million words too if the photographer has the skills... I leave u with the pictures of the dying flame.

The phone-camera pic :-

The point-n-shoot camera pic :-

But the flash told a different story altogether :-

All pictures are untouched except for being cropped using picasa.

Ooh, the first pic looks nice :)

The one with the flash looks like ice at first glance!

Thank you. :)
I am just amazed by how different things look through different lenses (SLRs, point-n-shoot ones, cellphone ones and even the human eye)
