  #187 Smell, Scent, Aroma
Entry 1 of 21
   
 
sandalwood       ©2017 elliott
Canon EOS M       1st place, 218 points
8s, f6.3, ISO 100, 29mm, Manual, Center Weighted Average, no flash
 
Post-Processing: crop, lots of cloning tool, resize       Extra Info: almost used the untouched original. even with cluttered background it made a good shot. but i opted for closer crop to put emphasis on the vapor and its pattern. long exposure to get agreeable exposure on basic elements and hand held flash out of view to capture the smoke.

    The foreground and subject are just fine. The background leaves a bit to be desired. I think the folds of fabric are the point of issue for me. Still in my favs.

    Very nicely done - conveys a sense of the aroma quite effectively. And the colors work well together as well.

    I really like this picture. The background, I don't know if it was intentional, but the folds add interest and accentuate the wisps of smoke for me. The color of the BG works for me. Very cool picture, well done!

    A peaceful easy feeling. Should do well.

    Lovely image of incense. I am surprised at the long exposure as usually one does 1/125 - 1/ 160. Nonetheless it worked well for you. My only nit pick is that you might have eliminated the incense box as IMHO it is somewhat distracting.

    My #1. Technically excellent with the white smoke standing out against all the browns. Great composition and overall colors. I would love to hear more about how you did this. Your "long exposure" didn't blur the smoke? How did you light this to get the smoke to come out so white? Hope you share that in the Outtakes.

    Very competent photograph. Good subject nicely composed and lit. The random vapour makes it interesting. Would work for 'scent' even without the title.
