I would not have known that this was smoke if it were not for the title of the challenge. I wish that you would have a bit more smoke swirling around and a tad bit sharper.

This would be way better if the ring was in focus.

Abstract image. Not sure it will resonate much with the more traditional voters?

This is a microscopic slide of a ring worm in a petri dish? Right? Right? Smoke ring is too non-distinct against the background.
