Just realized I missed the green arrow!
Its one of my favorites in a week with 97 (and counting) great entries.
Love the effect, must give it a try.
Thanks ,, alot for ur comments and votes
again its not painting ,, its not flower "its smoke photography ,, i will post a link for the setup photo ,, and feel free to ask me for any details ,, its simple and easy & and the concept is to have a powerful light source
Love this, what a beautiful flower.
I like the effect...
Back to enjoy again, can't give you any more votes.
excellent entry , looking forward to finding out how this was done. vote
Outstanding in all aspects. Fabulous design.
How'd you get the smoke to be so opaque in areas? I am excited to hear how this was achieved as well...
This is my FAVORITE!! +3
wow...smoke painting!?! Can't wait for another lesson. Exceptional shot!
Very creative and fascinating. I enjoy reading all the comments and also want to learn more about how you achieved this. Vote!
very cool photo
I agree with Hatteras and Suz totally different and really great contrast definatly a top five I feel.. Vote

Back to vote one more time.
simplysuz ,,, i said its not a light painting ,,,,its a smoke photography ,, and sure i will upload a photo of the setup when i am free
I'm trying to visualize exactly what you did with the placement of mirror and lamp. I didn't think it could possibly be a light painting with those the thin lines coming to an abrupt stop...all done in such a short period of time. I sure would love to have you post a photo of your setup so we can all see how it was done. Thanks. Great photo.
thanks all ,, its not light painitng ,, its just a RED SMOKE ,, like hmm that of perfume sticks
the light source used here was a desk lamp as i don have an external flash
but i found that if u put the desk lamp infront of an mirror ,, and the smoke is inbetween ,, u almost double the power of that light ,, a dark background is used to contrast the smoke ao it becomes clear
Back to vote. Please don't forget to vote for your favorites, too!
Beautiful and I love the symmetry! I don't understand light painting at all and will probably never try it so I'm no expert. Just want to say I love this!
Very interesting that you did this with a zoom lens and with a relatively fast shutter speed. Tells me whatever your light subject is was moving pretty fast. The mirroring is an interesting effect too Good luck.
I played around with light painting this past week as I attempted to compose my entry...result for me??? no success, especially when I compare it to your beautiful shot. Great job! Bravo.
This is a really cool photo. I love the technique.
Very good. very arty stuff. well constructed and presented. voted
Nice! I hope you share your technique, I'm here to learn how to do stuff like this!
Beautiful, did you use a real mirror or do it with software?
