Meets the challenge dead on! Very intriquing photo. Nice use of dodge and burn (if I detect it correctly).

Well done!

Your model held nice and still. I might have either tried to goof with color shift or more saturation or gone with B&W. AS it stands, the colors are very drab. Either burn or clone the scattered white stuff in the scrub on the right. 6

Scary! :) Fog machine, smoke bomb, dry ice?? My only nitpic is that the blackness of his robe touches a little of of the shore in the BG. slight shift in camera would have nailed it. 8

Great setup...guessing...standing on rock and blowing smoke :). Beautiful contrast and softness. I would defenetly cut of a big part of that bright sky...sets the mood completely off. Anyway well done.
