lovely. great composition, tonal values.
i just don't like that the vignetting is different in different corners (darker at the bottom).

This picture just made me cry.

I don't know if it's because I'm feeling really emotional for some reason, but it made me think of how someone is just on the edge of being invisible because no one notices them...almost like they should just disappear like smoke.

This is absolutely fantastic. I've never reacted to art like this.

simply amazing! I have always been fascinated by smoke art, and this is one astounding capture!

It almost seems she is trying to say something before she vanishes, trying to scream her heart out. I almost feel sorry for her... such a short existance.

How did you manage to capture this?

Did you just take random pictures of smoke, did you somehow control the smoke or is there photomanip here?
