That is one of the most unusual photos I've seen here! And it's great! Starting from the light, crop, not even mentioning the smoke, and expressions are so special. What are they thinking?
I'm thinking 10.

this image is awesome because it makes one's eye run around to every character, not once but twice and three times to discover all the intricacies of the meaning. great job!

Very good. It's an interesting picture: POV, composition & crop, cast of characters. It doesn't feel like something I have ever seen before (and that's a rare thing). And the picture continues, irresistibly, outside the frame. Top three. Thank you.

Heh. Looks staged, but entertaining nonetheless. Not easy to capture a smoke ring so clearly!

Must be unique in the portfolios of dpc (and beyond) for any number of reasons. A rare shot that warrants considerable contemplation of the how, why and even where? Reminds me of the well-etched characters in old moview or indoor groups as represented in classic paintings.
