    I love the expression in her face and the general feeling of excess expressed throughout.

    Good question; I didn't edit it out...

    Might have a play with PS and add some to see.

    No original smoke so I had to add it, Just used a smoke brush with soft light blend mode.

    cool - that's pretty neat that you can add the smoke in afterwards.
    nice work - i like it with that
    if it were me, i'd crop out the guy on the left...just a thought..
    my eye keeps getting drawn over there but i don't wanna look at him... she's priceless!
    nicely done

    Thank you,

    Smoke is pretty easy; there are many PS brushes available and many tutorials on how to create your own, blending modes really help make it fit the picture also.

    I kind of see what you mean about the man on the left, however, i cant easily crop him in a standard format, although looking at it again, I could crop down square and edit out his shoulder easily enough.

    You have me thinking now....

    Anyway, I am glad you liked i and thank you again for your comments.
