    Hey guys this is my first smoke pic to take. I was hoping you guys could C&C it for me. Let me know how I did, and how I can improve the next time. Thanks for the help guys.

    Nice try, looks neat, but you need a little faster shutter speed to freeze the moving smoke a bit more.....keep on trying.

    I like it...what does 'freeze the smoke more' mean? How did you take a photo of smoke?

    The focus is soft. It looks like the shutter was open too long, meaning the smoke had time to move during this interval. Needs a faster shutter speed to get a crisper focus, hence "freezing" the smoke.
