Taken at home, in a dark room. Lighting was off-camera flash. It was hard to focus the smoke in the dark, with proper depth of field, light it, and obtain decent results. Then I started to get nice shots, and ultimately it was tough to choose between the outtakes!

Post processing was qiute minimal: raw converting, very little cropping, resize, sharpen.

This was a really interesting and fun challenge, and I surely learned a lot. Really hope it does well!

I always find myself drawn to curves, and this is no exception. I like the way this one keeps drawing my eye to the smallest whirl near the center.

Great smoke shot with some very nice shapes in it. It's just on the borderline of getting chaotic, but still works well for me.

There are something wrong... I can't find any focus. It's look like randomly croped smokes. I think it wuold be better to make focus in one or few eddies.

Anyway, it's good try ;)
