    I have no idea why the smoke from the cigarette is blue.

    I like it! I think, besides the glasses glare, which you told us to ignore, if the cloud of smoke by his mouth wasn't so thick, it would be a bit better.

    I like it. A lot of depth and sharpness, especially for a close up. How'd you do it?

    The smoke from the cigarette is a different color than the smoke from his exhale because his longs just filtered out all the tasty goodness of cancer...

    God I got to quit smoking.

    I think it's a great shot. Impressive ash as well.

    my guess is, blue smoke = with tar and the thousands of chemicals. White smoke = whatever the lung couldn't absorb.

    No I don't know what the answer is, just messing around.

    Very nice capture of the smoke and good control of the depth of field. Lens glare is a little distracting, but it's not that bad.

    I LOVE seeing people getting creative with their lighting setups like I do! It makes me want to go out and shoot real bad! This shot, in exception for the glare (which honestly doesn't detract from the image that much at all), is EXCELLENT! I would have never ever ever guessed it was shot in your laundry room.

    Very cool indeed... I do like the glasses glare, though.... If I didn't know any better, it makes it look like he's in outer space with the glare from a solar system or something in his glasses....
