Decided to make it a little more humorous .. DPC's a great place, but is probably gonna give me cancer.

Photoshop work: Auto Levels and resize.

I think it is more unconventional and harder to pull off when the foreground is out of the DOF and the background is within the DOF. The foreground commands so much more of the space and people are disconcerted when it is OOF.

The lighting and other technicals seem great. I don't think there is a cast and there appears to be ample contrast. The composition is nice, although perhaps a little too symmetrical.

You got a few 1-votes from the pro-smoking crowd no doubt.

Pretty cool closeup...Can't be good for your lungs though! ,) Tough subject to take an appealing photo of but this is not bad.

I'm glad you included the ashes. Cigs are disgusting and dirty and this truly conveys that. Good luck.

I'd like to see this with really tight DOF around the area just in front of the packets.
