    Since I am still a TPF N00B, I have been having trouble with inserting images, lemme know if it worked or not...

    [​IMG]

    I Did everything myself, and with the except of minor textures, adding in the smoke (superstock.com, I don't smoke, let alone in the living room), and the selective color I did NOT edit it. Meaning, the lighting was for real. It wasn't really a studio setup either. I used a small flashlight propped up against the desk next to the couch. I sat on the couch, put the self-timer on, and hoped for the best. I used my tripod too :D

    1/16 f/5.6 50mm, The Flashlight was a 9 bulb LED pocket flashlight.

    The image is great, get rid of the texture though, it dosn't had to the image, maybe try with some grain but the stripes are just annoying..

    Before I read the text under the photo, I thought you had a weird way of holding the cigarette. Doesn't look very natural.

    Then I read... ok, you're not a smoker.

    I agree that the lines are annoying.

    Drop the texture and the coloured eyes. I'm personally not a big fan of selective colouring unless it truly adds to the image.

    The rest of the image is nice!
