Here goes, I only submitted one image in 2011 and have already equalled that in 2012 :)

I've not been following dpc for ages so have no idea what is currently in 'vogue' so this may well flop big time. I've just started playing with smoke, its much safer than fire but too much 'exposure' does give me a headache.

edited on my laptop and hoping that wasn't a bad idea.

Well, tis Friday night and just passed the 100 vote mark and sitting on 7.0882 (was 7.1317 this morning). If voting stopped now it would be my second highest scoring image, one happy bunny here so will have a wee dram to celebrate :)

[Jan. 10th, 2012 06:19:32 PM]

has been a strange day and watched it drop from 7.2318 to 7.1976. It's also been in validation for for over 30 hours so am sure whatever the outcome my image might spark off a debate in the morning :)

I'll update with editing steps tomorrow but for now the gradient tool may or may not be my friend ;)

I do quite like this image 'created' from my submission but understand it's not what dpc is about ;)

Congrats on the ribbon! What a way to return after a long time away :-)- fingers crossed on the gradient tool. Beautiful details in the wispy smoke and the colors are the icing on the cake.
