This me standing in front of my clothes dryer external exhaust. Used lighting from my door light. No post processing except contrast raising, and Usm. Tripod was mounted 2 yards behind me for this 13 second smoke capture and dim frontal lighting. It's sillouette is rich, looks like photo was erased. I hope people don't notice the BBQ grill !

Congrats on your top ten, I spy the bbq, maybe you were up for a heavenly cook off :P
Kidding aside, this is great work with natural elements and not setting up some lights.

Bada Bing Bada Boom. I love the lighting and mood. Reminds me of a scene from the Sopranos.

This shot is great - man vs. something (maybe the BBQ grill that you've pointed out) - I felt some kind of a challenge about to take place, it's very powerful, congrats :)

This is neat. I'd love to know where and what caused the lighting in the background and whether that mist is mist, fog or smoke.
