    I like the ambient light. The plumes of smoke are very strong. What were you thinking in regards to the specular highlights? I am guessing that you used the dreaded "star" filter?

    I like the second one. I'd guess it was just taken at about f22 to get the light flare?

    Cruzin, that second shot is a real beauty, I love the smoke effect, almost bending it over. Fantastic.

    I'm with robhesketh I think he just used a very small apature to get the star effect, but I could be wrong. Cruzin this is my kind of photography, I like them both.The top of the tree line in the second looks a little odd, could just be me. Nice work!

    Thanks everyone.

    Graig, Pursuer and Robheskieth are right, with Robheskieth hitting the aperature value right on @ f22 with a 50mm lense

    number two is great, I like the way the steam goes horizontal on the left side, but the one on the right is sheltered, so has a bit more of a chance of swirling around.

    #2 rocks Cruzin as everyone has already said! :thumbup:

    what can i say my friend? your pictures are a definate inspiration to me as i've said before. new equipment doesn't create an image, it only encourages and excites us to explore and become better, which you have in so many ways. these days, i look so forward to your posts and find great delight in what you seem to stumble upon. excellent work!!!!
