"Water Drops and Smoke" series
When it comes to Water drops and smoke shots probably everything and anything has been done. However, I couldn't resist to try it, besides, it is to cold to go out and shoot!! Here is my take on this little project.
The Beauty of this is that you never get the same shot twice.

Yesterday a couple of am3 users asked about the settings I used to take these photos. I followed a tutorial I found on Youtube. For a step by step tutorial on how to photograph smoke click here

Thank you for visiting my blog and for your feedback. Sorry if I don't respond to your comments, but I do read them and certainly, appreciate them.

The series of shots with the blue smoke is really excellent. The colors and the light are great. I like this one most.
