    It's true, to some it makes no sense. To others, all the sense in the world. Good work.

    man i always see this shot on the front page, it may be my favorite ever taken . I don't shoot photos with cigarettes in the because i think it is very juvenile, but this shot is unreal. you inspire!

    You got my vote on the basis of subject matter (and I am a smoker!). The shot does have drawbacks, however, as the lighting to the left side of the head all the way up to the corner is far too bright, and you have burn-out problems (no pun intended) in the area to the left of the two fingers. Good model and an interesting face.
