Interesting shot. :) And I think a white background is much better than a black one for this colour.

Ok, heres another version on black, of a different image!

Image


How I Did It:

For the actual photograph, i took a black bacground and a jostick, lit the jostick and placed the camera on a tripod. I then used my flash off-camera with a snoot on, to focus the light on the smoke. The white one was achieved in PP, by converting the image to negative/inverted the colours, and then i used an adjustment brush to paint the colour onto the smoke.

My opinion is that the black background is much better. The colors really pop.

Both are very good - well shot.

I especially like the detail in the white background picture

Great shots.

With the white back round, it looks like it's in water (very nice), in black I will agree the colors pop out very nice... well done, and great discussion and opinion, that's how we can observe and comment each others photos... this forum is Aok
