Thank you all very much. Lauren you can just use an on board flash but you will need the background to be a fair distance from the smoke. this one was taken with just a single camera flash.

Don't get me wrong, they're very good and i'm sure you've worked hard to get them, but 10 of them? It makes me think you just need your ego massaged by the clicks & comments.

PG, I dont have an ego, I like taking photographs and I liked the challenge of this subject. I really wanted to fill my showcase and each and everyone of these pictures needed to be different from the next, sometimes I really dont know why I even bother uploading anything as there is always someone wanting to find an ulterior motive behind something.

Don't think i'm attacking you...There's no ulterior motive. You (like everyone else on this site) upload photos for people to view and state their opinion on. That is my opinion. I didn't say it was a bad photo, I didn't say you are a bad photographer, I simply said I think you are over doing the smoke thing.

You need to be able to take criticism as well as praise in photography.

What does it matter how many if you think they are good? I enjoy or rather enjoyed doing them and as I said I wanted to fill my showcase. I take criticism about a photo but this wasnt about the photo. One landscape taken 10 different ways, a gerbera taken 10 different ways, this isnt the same shot uploaded 10 times with a different colour but I dont want to have to try and justify why I uploaded them. I like them, hence the uploads.

I am about to finish decorating my house soon and think that a couple of these smoke shots might look fantastic on my wall if you would consider parting with a couple. With regards to the person who commented on the number of smoke images uploaded - that just sounded like an envious viewer to me - If you uploaded 10 portraits does that mean you are over doing it - obviously that person needs to learn to look at the images far far closer - a face must just be like any other face to her - sad.

Any way great photo mesmerises me every time I look at it.

I am so taken by this photo, i have never seen anything like it before. The detail is such that you could look at it for ages and still see things you hadn't noticed before.

I am new to this place so don't know if it's bad etiquette to ask what the technique is to get this sort of shot.

To the person who mentioned the ego, your comment is a personal attack rather than critiquing the photos. Understand the difference before commenting in the future.
