Well holy crap, day one it was over an 8, it never ever starts that high. I wore out the update button waiting for a huge drop by 100 votes later I am at a 7.5 with 19 comments. Safe to say this will be a Personal Best by far and my first 7+

Thanks everyone, curious what I wake up to.

Well it did drop a bit more but am really happy. Thank you all for your comments.

great clarity, the smoke is prominent but takes a secondary role, which aint bad
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2013 09:57:31 PM

  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2013 09:15:56 PM
Very nicely done. Really enjoying the color processing.

Wow, best one of the lot. Love this one, good focus/sharpness/composition and I almost can smell that smoke (used to like the smell). VWD!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2013 01:04:27 PM
Too predictable,in every way.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2013 11:40:06 AM
I'm a sucker for simple, dramatic processing. Very well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2013 01:24:19 PM
Amazing textures and details. I love how the smoke reminds me of clouds.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Once this is over I would like permission to convert this over to 3d bet it will look cool. but you will have to have 3d monitor or tv to view it. 10

I suspect this piece is a Minso? Regardless, expertly captured and processed. Just love the lighting of the hand...so much detail. Superb. Top 3 for me.

Fits the challenge to a "T" and I really like the PP on this.
Very nice.

Joshua, you have found a signature editing style.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/08/2013 12:16:57 PM
Makes me want to set aside my cigars and pull out my pipe. I can smell the sweetness right now. Edit choice was good on this one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/08/2013 12:16:20 PM
So... love this. A lot. This will be the blue I'm sure. It's even slightly better than my own entry, LOL
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/08/2013 11:15:30 AM
Good textures. Would have liked to see the hand a little lower and maybe a little more smoke. I think you were just trying to get more of your tat in the pic :)

03/08/2013 03:41:14 AM
nice lighting and great, bold processing (except for the blown lights in the smoke). Top 5
