Neat smoke effect, but the smoke stream seems very directed.

Wonderful, the selective desat is great.

Nice idea. Nice black background. If you had manage to control the smoke better, to get it to fully cover the bottom of the chair it would have been great. I find the light on the models face abit to bright. And her pose doesn't really look that relaxed.

This is great! I like the negative space and the desat and the title. All very well done!

The idea's pretty humourous but it's not conveyed very strongly by the photo. Cloud Nine, for me, is something light, bright, surreal even and maybe paradise-like. The colours here are very sober.

I like the concept and placement of the model. It's a bit too dark overall for me, but the red wine is a nice touch.

I like the concept, and the color left on the wine. It''s one of the few selective desats that seems to have a purpose in the effect.
One small detreaction, IMO is the very apparent source and motion of the fog; it would be better, IMO, if the fog were in slower motion and with a less well-difined source.

That's the destination for me! I love this. I kind of wish that the back of the chair was fully in the frame - it seems to bother me a little that it's cropped out - but I can't give this any less than a 10 for imagination & execution. I love the desat; I normally don't like that effect but you chose it perfectly for this image.

Fun effect. The use of negative space is good with the figure's placement. Not crazy about the single sat of color, although I understand its meaning. I'd like the figure to be a touch more focused. Overall - not a bad shot!
