Abstract


Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Pollution (Basic Editing)
Camera: Nikon D70
Lens: Tamron SP MF 90mm f/2.5 Macro Adaptall

Originally I was going for ETS (Environmental Tobacco Smoke) title, but then changed my mind.

I hope voters get the message I am trying to convey through this image and I do not get low DNMC votes. Just for the safety, I kept the title explanatory.

PP: crop, curves, saturation increase, resize, usm, frame

If you have not already guessed, the background is laptop screen with one of my landscape photos.

The background is very distracting. The color helps to make the cigs stand out, but since its blurry you focus on that and not the subject.

Cool. Such an interesting POV. Did you try any with the clouds in focus as well (or is that even possible??). I really wish that cloud at the top right wasn't there, as it keeps stealing my attention.

Clever photograph it is the most creative i have seen in this challenge. I like your use of negative space and the texture on the cig. looks so crumbly and nasty compared to the fluffy clouds so besides the contrasting textures the colors biege and blue seem to complement eachother so everything seems to be working in your favor.

Excellent, I could see this as a billboard for an AntiSmoking Campaign.

I like the double pollution effect in this picture. It has a lot of depth and the clouds in the right balance out the two cigarettes.

This is a very good idea, I do think however that it could have been executed better.

I like the clarity of the cigarettes, and the beautifull blue sky really makes them stand out. Clever photo.

wow, I really like this shot. The composition is very well done and your background blur really frames your "chimneys" well. Good luck, I give it an 8.

A twin towers simile I'm not too keen on.
