This is a picture taken outside of my front door. The clouds in front of the moon look like smoke, some say it resembles a dragon.

A decent idea to meet the challenge. The distribution of smoke accross the frame is wispy and nice.

Technical aspects will keep this image from a high score. The moon, if indeed that is what that is supposed to be, itself is completely overexposed. The smoke is out of focus and grainy. This is probably intentional on your part but most reviewers will see this more as a technical flaw than an intentional expression of art. And if they do see it as art they will likely think that it did not work that well.

looking at this for a while makes like there are creatures flying in the sky.
This is cool. Just the right amount of smoke and shutter timing there is very litte to no flare from the light of the moon if this is an out door shot.

Loved the shot. Give it a 10. It is moody and even spooky when you look over to the right and see the shape of a demonic figure in it. This is the only 10 I've given so far, and may be the only one I give.

Nice idea, but the grain of the photo really loses the essence of the smoke, which is its strong curves and wispiness.
