agreed i like #4 the best. Almost looks like 2 opposing wraiths about to clash. How'd you do it?

overall excellent photoshop skills!! creative use of layering, flipping, hue adjustments :thumbsup:

I love #3, the symmetry is makes the picture great.
it likes to me like a guardian angel from final fantasy, i thought i could see a face on top of her collar, two bunch of hair swaying to the sides, shoulders wide apart and spreading out her long sleeves, an hour-glass figure as well!

for #1, I think u over-saturated it, the noise is showing up in the orange waves.

anyway love your watermark signature, its a cool design.

hope u dun mind i ask, how did u manage to isolate the smoke from the background?
what background u used?

thanks everyone for the nice comments.

yeah..i kinda oversaturate the first pic.

i used a black background for these.
then slightly increase the levels to make it really black.
and clone out the unwanted smokes.
for the white,
i just invert them :)
i used incense for the smoke.

only incense, a black t-shirt, and 2 lights and photoshop !
thought you were burning mosquito coil to 'X-Dengue'
:bsmilie:

correction: mosquito coil do not 'X-Dengue', it just chases away Aedes mosquito that carries the dengue virus. those who had dengue and recovered do take caution as the secondary infection could be deadly as it may developed DHF or DSS. The recent outbreak of Strain II makes the chances of developing DHF and DSS higher at first infection.
how did this OT... occupational hazard...
