Interesting image. I like the artifical color work in the smoke that keeps if from becoming a flat graphic.There is an elegance to the image that make it very viewable (can sit and look at it rather than flip on to the next). Your biggest problem would be where do you go next? It's takes some serious creative insight not to just "do more" of the same technique. At some point you would need to make the image series mean more. You have the tools to do that. It's the creative insight that's always the challenge. I would also say that when people ask how you did your work here in this group, you should either graciously defer or give them the whole story. There is clearly a good deal of Photoshop work in this image, particularly the addition of a cut and paste to make the top of the image symetrical. It's karmic. If you don't openly share the details you can't expect others to share with you.

Thanks a lot for your kind words. I absolutely have no problem with telling people how I did this or what steps I made in Photoshop to achieve this result. Check the older comments to see that I already explained how I have taken the picture. ;) If there's any question on the digitally enhancement of the the picture, there's no reason why anybody should not ask me about it.

Yes, the thing with such images is that once you get a great result, it's always hard to top it. Of course like you said there's the possibility to take just another few pics of the same style, however, that would rather be boring and not my intention. :)

Impressed with your insight. I see there's a lot more going on photographicly with you than I first thought. I'll watch for your work.

Thanks a lot! I'm glad you recognized that I am not just "another" guy who takes pics and uploads them here. I'm surely here to share my thoughts and experiences, so I have no problem if anyone has a question.

Haha, thanks mate! It's easy, just use a flash to illuminate the smoke from the side and a fast shutter speed and there you go. :)

If you have any flash it is quite simple actually.. Just use a fast shutter speed and then indirectly illuminate the smoke from an angle, like ninety degrees from the right or left side. It takes a few pics to have a good image, but it's worth it. ;) Thanks!
