too much color here, IMO, for a "balck and white in color" challenge

Very cool shot but too much color for me in this challenge. How the heck did you get such beautiful smoke?? I tried it and failed miserably.

I don't think you read the rules for this challenge.

You must learn DOF... young grasshopper.

Wasn't the whole point to have it look b&w? Why add color?

nice smoke shot and very well done transition of colors. I do feel that this might have more impact if it were all b&w smoke or less color than used.

If I didn't read the title, I'd never know this had anything to do with "black and white in color." A small spot of color can get by, but the color is what makes this photo.

Although this is a nice smoke shot, my inturpretation of this challenge is to take a shot in color and make it seem like it was taken in b&w,

I would have scored it higher without the color, even though overall it's a pretty nice effect.

Would have preferred all white smoke.
