Much better than the thumbnail suggests. I hope people take a look.

Mavis is right about the thumbnail, it doesn't do the image justice. This really demands attention and thought. It draws the eye in and lets it wander, explore. There's a strange feeling to it - faces and hands floating in the smoke, no clear sense of distance - it could almost be a montage. I covet this one.

This is absolutely beautiful- you should enter it into the Guardian this week- the theme is 'layers'. I love this.

I personally like to experiement with light/smoke etc and this is just stunning. I am envious! What settings did you use for this pic?

Thanks very much for the comments, exposure details; f/7 at 1/160 and I compensated the exposure (down) by 3 stops to reduce the glare and soften the light.

Each person so into the moment. Such a sense of almost hysteria, but in a good way. Like they are seeing something so special. Wonderful capture..............Sandy
