Not a big fan of smoking, but I took one for the team (myself) on this one...And burned a nice memory (hole) in my camera strap.

Hope you like it.

Ripper. One of my favourites, if not the best....but I haven't seen them all yet.

one of the few that really meets the challenge, with great atmospheric feel and composition

I like the use of back light on the subject. Not quite sure about the left part of the picture, perhaps a little less clutter would have improved it?

The lightings ok, but you should really have tried to eliminate the hotspot under his chin. The smoke's too blurry, as well. There's enough of a mix of angles that the non-vertical vertical's aren't distracting.

Nice natural halo!

One of the few that actually met the challenge...

Very moody. If only the smoke could be shot without as much blur from the movement.

Agreed. Good effort.

well-composed photo. it would be fun to write words in the smoke bubble. something like "hi there"

This is very cool... The negative color space works well here, kind of like an old bogart movie. This gives the viewer not only darkness but coldness feeling as well. Great job.

Smokings bad. But I like the capture. I like how the leaves add a little light to the top without going overboard.

Interesting take on the subject.
