I didn't vote on this but its one cool image! My only thought would have been to have you? looking at the heart rather than away from it?

Glad to see this up here. Well deserved. Lighthearted for the holiday but not too cheesy and overdone. If you smelled like cat's ass then other cats would like you.

Very well done Pedro
I'm going to build one of those lights now, and use it for movies perhaps. Looks just like natural light, your a tech genius. Please let me rub your bald head in the future
Good luck doll

Man...do you have any idea how adorable this is? ;) Awesome idea, excellent shot. :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

A clever idea indeed but the heart-shaped smoke doesn't work well for me - because it's quite a dense area of smoke it's more obvious that the edges have been erased away in post-processing. I have no problem with using post-processing by the way, but in this case it doesn't quite create a believable result. My feeling is that if there were just a few strong swirls of smoke, a touch more spread out, and then the edges erased into a heart shape, it might look more natural. Anyway, I still like this shot a lot - the pose and lighting are good and the idea is a fun one!
