Another shot missed on the first pass due to my dark monitor as I missed all that smoke floating upward. Wel presented challenge entry, the only thing I would say is when I downloaded it I tried a different crop and removed the hand, that is not a smokers way to hold a cigarette? the smoke then seemed to profile the face.

Anyway, bumped an extra point after the second pass ;)

Good lighting, strong shot. Perhaps a more gray tone in the border would help?

The face commands more attention than the smoke for me.

Fine comp, great thin stream of smoke, very intent look on the model's face and nice tones and excellent composition.
