This is a startling image that says alot with very little subject matter. Looks like it should be in an anti-smoking ad. Did you capture a black background like that or was it removed in PP? Only thing I would change add a little more depth of field. The bottom of the lighter is ever-so-slightly out of focus and I'm not sure it needs to be. Cool shot though.

lol, no. no bong photos will come out of my stuff
the background is naturally like that. i posted the picture unedited, straight out of camera, something i rarely do. but i didnt think this one required much manipulation to have impact.

Mike,

First... Thank you for your "NO BONG" policy...

Second... The picture is very good and shows thought and planning with tension of
yin and yang. I agree B&Wand other PP will really help this tension stand out.

dale

PS: Let me know how much white ink you need.
