There are a lot of smoking pictures here, but thus far this is my favorite. It may not be the most beautifully rendered, you may not see every ash in exquisite detail, but it embodies the habit more than any of the others.

Was this taken on a phone? Then digitally dehanced to make look worse. Poor. 1

Interesting shot. Just a little dark and noisy for me. I might have had a tried to catch this with a little more light in the room, or if that was'nt do able have the subject located with a little more light on her face. Just my thoughts.

This looks like a photo from a badly processed negative. Blurry and overly red. Not too good. You might want to consider a tripod for shots like this.

An effective very low light shot. Too bad the light is right next to the top of the model's head.

I'm having trouble with the focus and lighting.

I like the glow of the fire and the color of the smoke, but the rest of the picture is too dark to be interesting. It also looks a bit out of focus.

well done. Is this the first picture you have ever taken?
it is interesting, but it just doesn't do it for me.

lots-o-noise. but it is a long exposure. sweet idea. probably just noisy because it is a cheap camera (like mine). great idea--poits there. execution was a little shaky--the light behind the head is distracting. head should have eclipsed it or else should have been composed outside of frame.

Sorry but the pic just doesn't get it. OOF, grainy, etc.

you sharped it with photoshop didn't you

I don't know about smoke looks like a woman in the moment of screaming for god in the deep old red room resort of love with you on her should completing your own release to death.

What were you smoking when you took this:-)? Interesting in a oops I accidently pressed the shutterbutton while putting the camera away. Yet somewhat appealing

and god created matrix without dead pixels and noise reduction functions !!

I like the red tint, and softness, not as fond of the noise and blur.

cant decide if I love it or hate it. a bit dark, perhaps - I only just realised that he deformed right shoulder is an arm.

Common solution. Nice color, but too many stray pixels and lack of any particular focus.
