Thanks for the nice words and votes. About the setup: I used a flashgun from behind for lighting. The smoke comes for an incense stick, placed bellow the plant. The stick was masked out by black paper.

I love the way smoke comes out and the way it looks with the black background...

I like the double meaning, at least I think its a double meaning, of literally a burnout with the smoking out of the plant and the fact if you were burning the poppy plant in its other form(heroine) you would also be a burnout in the drug user sense. Lighting is very cool.
