I tried to do a shot w/ incense smoke for the Risk challenge, but it didn't really work out, so I experimented w/ matches, and I ended up really liking it!

The hand wasn't in focus, so I had to crop it off, I'm not sure which way looked better. I had a lot of fun w/ this, so thats all that matters. :). Also, I didn't cut off the little bit of the match because I wanted the whole flame to show. Again, I don't know whether that was a good choice or not.

Fits challenge=5
Wow factor/uniqueness=0
comments: I like the idea and the smoke is nice and sharp but I get more of an idea of just a match being lit and not really an explosion...of course this could be leading to the explosion, if so I think you should have had more room on the right to help lead the viewer towards it.
