This was one of my favorite shots from my smoke shoot. I inverted the picture, I darkened the smoke and added a color filter, then I adjusted the hue to this purple, I did a sharpen layer mask bringing out "his" face and kept his hair blurry to give it a more human appearance. From there I whitened the background up in a few spots and removed some excess smoke so it looked more like a face, added a border and saved for web and here it is. I'm really excited about this one and hope it can contend this month.
