For some reason, this made me think of the World Trade Towers (9/11). I think because of the different hights. But the beauty of it being the smoke's representation of the ascent to heaven.

Thanks for showing what the 5400 can do.


Jeez - given the date it's always surprised me that no-one twigged that.

Hey Ed: Congratulations on your 13th placing. Smoke uniting from two sources with a stereo effect off the wick. Cool.

I loved the "heart" shaped smoke above the candles. It creates a special "relationship" between the two candles, although it is not actually made of them both. Great shot. 9

Very nice shot :) I'm a smoke lover and love the shapes made here. The right smoke is excellent but I wonder if the smoke was a touch sharper at the edges. I mentioned this on another (similar) shot and would prefer the smoke to either finish within the image or be allowed to continue through the frame to the edge.
I'd probably hang this on my wall if it was my work.

again, if your a vote watcher, the 1 you just saw was a bump ;)

Nicely done. Smoke isn't as dramatic as some other shots in the challenge but including the candles and lighting just their tops makes for a stronger composition. Among my top picks.

the smoke could have been a teensiest bit more in focus, love the shot though (7)

The smoke is a little blurred but other than that it's a very nice photo. I really like the light on the candles.

Is that supposed to be a heart?
