Nice, I like how you used a harsh light sourse to illuminate the buts--just very well done. Would have liked a little more DOF, the blur in the foreground kinda distracts from the photo.

what a great perspective for this shot!

7 - Good idea, colors, composition and textures are good. Criticism; perhaps a tighter crop at the bottom, to me the bottom 'butts' that are out of focus dominate the shot, that or different 'focus', because the ash and tobacco at the 'base' adds a good element in my opinion.

Great photo. I think cigs are disgusting, but you've made a great photo here and I hope people can see that. Good luck.

great shot. may have been nicer in black and white. not sure how i feel about the front-most ones being out of focus, but that's a matter of taste.

This really stands out, its so grungy and to the point that it works perfectly. I really like the use of space to enhance the cigarettes.

I wonder whether this would work a little better with the focus being on the cigarette ends at the bottom of the frame. As it is, my eye seems to wander around without really finding anything to grab my attention.

And that's a good response for this challenge. Nice job.
