I know its nothing earth shattering in the pattern department or maybe I've just spent too long in a small room with lots of smoke but I like this one.

So close to being an EC, I just feel the curve on the left should have been in the frame too as the clipping of the outline makes it too tight. Still it's a brilliant smoke shot and almost looks like a naked female body arched over backwards.

this image is stunning - the black background works perfectly to increase impact - great composition too - i looked for awhile because i was trying to work out if it was smoke or a silk scarf - either would make a perfect image

keep up the great work

K, I apologise. Having tried these now I can see that a lot of what appears to be noise is in fact the composition of the smoke.

Killed a great hour playing with these and got about 2 that I think are any good. Will load one tomorrow. Like you I've decided at the moment to leave them with the black background. May play with some PS layers later.
