#2...I think all these other edits are a case of trying to hard to create a dramatic image. The picture is what it is, and it's very good to begin with. No need to go overboard.

How about processing #5 like you did with #2? Both are great, but the combination would meet the best both worlds.

I prefer #7. Not as much smoke.

#1 the Silhouette of the girl add some drama to the pic and to the real world, at least what the people expect when you smoke a real tobacco.
#2 the well educated style of grab a tobacco but need the female Silhouette.

Easy choice, I like #1 the best, the smoke is distracting in the rest of the images.

Yep, #2 for me as well. His mouth shape is more natural and the shape of the flame is strong.

There's balance in the negative space.

#8 is my choice

Hi Hendrick / Bluefire7

1.> Great clear view of the face in profile
2.> striking colours of the smoke plume
3.> uncluttered background, you've managed to get rid of the distracting background people!
4.> looks a a really professional commercial shot! -- I love it

Congratulations on the 'set'. I can now understand why you need opinions!

Always on the outside of any statistical grouping...for me it's No.6. That has gravity.

If only I could just shadow you for a while and steal all of your flash knowledge and secrets. I generally prefer natural light, but your flash is done right and with style.
