This is my first submission in DP Challenge. My wife helped me to hold the burning match sticks in snowstorm when weather in Toronto is not so great. It was feels like -17C and wind of 20km/hr. Hope you all like it and thanks to my wife. I would need her help for every submission to DP Challenge.

I didn't vote in this challenge but I did look at all the images and this was the one that really stuck with me. I really liked this shot. As other's have said, the smoke is really what makes the shot.

I really like this.. it has an immediate and natural quality.. i like the head lights in the distance.. maybe better with a square crop without the taxi on the right. 8

Interesting scene/idea. I like how the moth from the matches shows off the wind.
