I haven't posted in ages, but when I saw this, I had to say: Amazing. I love this. You know, I bet tons of people (advertising? thetruth?) would love to buy this picture.

Congratulations on 3rd place and congratulations for quitting the smoking habit. I don't know how you could have photographed this without wanting to smoke it!

I did the same thing. Only I started Dec 17th and have not had once since. Good luck to you. We can do it. I am using the patch and it helps. Now tell me what to do with these darn hands.

Good strong image with a good message! Congrats!

Excellent composition! The lighting on the left is too harsh for my personal taste, but it is a great image.
01/04/2003 03:18:09 AM
I hope you succeed. Here's wishing you the best and congratulations on a fantastic photo. This, in my opinion, is very good. I especially like the light on the sloping part of the cigarette. You put thought into this. It deserves a 7. PTL

Tell me about it :)

i didn't expect so many resolution shots, and so many cigarette shots, this is one of the good ones. nice clarity and detail
01/02/2003 02:52:51 PM
Nice lighting and idea, but there is a lot of negative space.
01/02/2003 05:12:33 AM
Like the composition, light and detail.
The best solution to quit smoking is to never start with it I think. :-)
(I don't smoke)

Good idea, and nice pic. Now throw them all in the trash and good luck. Happy New Year!

Great composition, good call for keeping the image in colour!
