Playing with fire

We have an outdoor fireplace and I was trying various photographic techniques with the flames.
I thought this one came out pretty cool. You can clearly see the logs in focus, but the flames are a bit blurred.

250mm focal length
Exposure 1/40 sec @ f5.6
ISO 800

This one is my favorite. I manually focused the camera on the top of the flames. Then I aimed the lens at a point just above the top of the flames and opened the shutter.

65mm Focal Length,
Exposure 4 sec @ f4.0 (handheld I might add!)
ISO 800

You have played with fire skilfully. Both images have come out very well captured the various color tones

Thank you Thomas. I was thinking on reducing the exposure on the 2nd photo and reposting. The flame is a bit bright.
