I have mixed feelings about this one, I've been looking at it a lot. The idea is adventurous, but for the very shallow depth of field to work I think I want more intensity in the cigarette-end - partial desaturation has reduced the glow. Personally I would like a bit more dof, bring the lips into focus; and there are some odd lines creeping in - to the left of the butt, across the right (to us) cheek, across the left (to us) side of the chin...
So I would regard this as an idea to be developed, worked on...

Thanks Kate and Moira, Thanks also to Kate for your Valued Award, Greatly Appreciated...Moira, I shall do it according to you as well, those lines are created by smoke, the challenge was to work with the shallow dof here, and tried to break those conventional rules...

I appreciate that, I don't look for conventional.. I do look for something that I can connect to, relate too. For me that means the face... Perhaps this will connect better for a smoker!

I think you have the start of something that could be even better, Somnath. I am trying to look at this objectively, not subjectively, but at the same time trying to envisage the alternative possibilities without destroying the sense of something artistically different.
