ok i cloned out the incense that i used to create my smoking gun. then i changed the image size to the allowed sizing. then i used the dust and scratches filter to make the image look a little better. then i used the gradiant map to change the image to b&w and also to kind of remove my background which after looking @ the picture was decided to be distracting from the subject. then i dodged some of the highlights from the gun and adujusted the contrast and entered.

Great idea and good composition. For whatever reason, the smoke looks kind of fake. I am pretty sure it's not. There is a fair amount of grain inthe photo. It could be due to slight under exposure.

Comparatively little smoke, and not very esthetically pleasing to me. Understand the word tie in, but that's not what makes an image really attractive. Good luck with the challenge.
