The photo is a simple shot of a single incense smoke take with a sb600 flash on camera left side. Patience is the only trick :)

The fact that you got all that amaizing detail is unto itself artwork! Good job!

Awesome job with the smoke capture! I gave it an "8", one of my top 5! Basic editing makes these shots kinda tough but my only suggestion would be that you could get rid of some of the noise in the black part by boosting the black levels to around 10. Congrats on your ribbon!

Is that just a single incense stick?

Facinating even swirling pattern. I'll be interested to see how this was done.

Nice job with the smoke rings
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is beautiful. My only suggestion would be maybe to crop so just the right side (the right-most 3 swirls) are in the frame. The lighter swirls aren't as well detailed.

Classically beautiful. Definitely in my top 3.

Love the swirls in this. The composition is also great how it crosseds the image diagonally.

Cool smoke rolls. The lighting is quite dull on the left side, maybe you should have cropped.

Very interesting patterns. I think it is the almost symmetric pattern that really makes this interesting. Nice one.
