thanks, everyone, for the compliments!

here is the original, post crop.

all i did was black out the background, and intensify the shadows.

no sharpening, no saturation boost, no contrast changes.

i have tried to repeat the same effect, but as yet, have not been able to do so.

it's allright, though...

my house is starting to smell pretty good!

i will post a new thread of a few of original shots soon.

Hey E.S.,

I've enjoyed all of your smoke pics, so I don't really have a critique. They have all been exposed and composed well. As for a technique, I played with this one a bit. Inverted the colors, changed the hue to get a little green in there and then saturated the green channel a bit. They can come out pretty cool sometimes. Hope you don't mind.

thanks, cubs.

what software did you use for the negative?

i have been taking friends to an old haunted house and would like to take some shots

with no lighting or flash and would like to see what i can come up with.

my ex has taken a few 0 light shots and came up with some pretty creepy stuff.

I use photoshop elements, but any should be able to do it. I know even MSPaint:? has a negative filter. Good luck, can't wait to see what you come up with.
