great stuff, still a little confused about where the incense is placed in this photo. is it directly underneith? wicked capture, ive tried incense shots but realised that i can work better with my mouth for smoke.
congrats, going into faves

Excellent shot. I am curious how you composed this picture to get the smoke swirling and what kind of lighting you used. I think this one will ribbon.

Very nice, but it's not perfectly symmetrical, just thought I'd point that out. :)

Symmetry is not even. Unless it is exactly symetric which this isn't.
