This is one of the best "smoke works" images that I've seen. Very creative.

Thanks Stephen. I feel a bit down that its getting almost no welcome from pn community, -thus the title-.

Hey, it's always hard to accept a bad idea/execution/image etc, but this is life. We are not perfect. nothing is perfect.

For what it is worth, I think it is a very cool concept, with beautiful tones. Dan

real hits over ratings

Thanks for the support Brad.

Let me clarify why I'm not happy. I assume like many here on the PN, my goal is to share my work with larger audience, not really get or give educational guidance/classes as the site editor now tasked us to do.

Accordingly, I question my goals and motives in joining PN, if my images will get only few hundreds hits. Seriously, if I wanted to reach only few hundred folks, I could keep sharing my pics with my friends via email as I used to do.

Now, as the ratings here, the hope of reaching wider audience is fast becoming a meaningless endeavor. I'd take 25K "real" hits any day even if the pic get all 1s.
