Looks like I was right about this one. You can join Judi in the list of people who hurt their score by meeting the challenge too well.

A very underrated shot. This challenge had a lot of those.

Great image, really cool smoke, like the colors. It appears that you confused fooled the voters, as in reality this is an upside down upside down image.

Quite a clever shot, I am not sure if that is a ray of light shooting in to the glass with smoke bellowing out or whether it is someone blowing a very fine smoke trail in to the glass, my main gripe with the shot is the lighting is so harsh at the base of the glass bowl and that really detracts from an otherwise fine shot.

This is my favorite photo in the challenge. I think it is brilliant, from conception, to execution, to toning, even the title... What I am struggling with is the connection to Upside Down. Maybe I am just being obtuse!? It will be interesting to see what other comments you get on this. Anyhow, very well done.

The image is great but I am a bit confused about what is upside down.

i like the feel of this, but it's not saying upside down to me.

A little grainy, but obviously high ISO to catch that smoke. If this were advanced, I would suggest some selective NR on the smoke. Pretty neat looking and I like the lighting. I assume the glass must be upside down and the image also flipped. If that's the case, you have doomed yourself to DNMC votes by over-meeting the challenge. (Didn't think that could be done until now!)Good luck, this was clearly some work and deserves a decent score.

Good photo but I don't see how it meets the challenge.
