The only thing is there is no real connection between the smoke and the person, so it comes off as something else besides smoke. Maybe a profile with the same lighting so the smoke can be seen coming from the mouth or at least the face area.

I love the second shot. Hey! try it without the smoke and put a star/moon or UFO in the sky. Could be interesting.

I think this is the mother of creativity. MJ, the second one came out best. There is some kind of mystery to it, hmmmm!

Hi Mike,

Been away for a day and there are like 2 pages of new posts!!!

This is cool but as somebody mentioned earlier the smoke just looks like it shouldn't be there... I think it would look really cool without the smoke there at all and just the rim lit outline...
