I really don't know how you got this shot, which is why I have to give it a ten. Nicely done.

I've seen a LOT of smoke shots here over the last few years. This one is superbly done! Great job! The lines are quite alluring, guiding the viewer gently thru the image to be ultimately lost in the ending curls of smoke.

This should be displayed proudly on the front page tomorrow!!! Well done.

I'm really curious to see how you made this so smooth. I love the color effect, and it's one of my few tens. Love the square crop.

Definitely gives a smooth feel. It's amazing how it almost looks like silk.

It's been done many times before - but I really like this smoke pic, particularly because it fits the smooth challenge title so well and the composition is better than most.
