  3. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a long-standing member, Just Dave.

    Dave Barker was a member of Talk Photography for nearly 10 years, and was a prominent member for most of those.
    A very warm, friendly and enthusiastic member, he spent the largest portion of his time on TP welcoming and helping others.

    I'm sure all visitors to this site will join us in thanking Dave for his unwavering support and being a large part of our community.
    Our thoughts are with his family and friends at such a difficult time.

    I'm in the process of trying this kind of shot, and imho ( which isn't worth jack) it's a nice image but it looks like the pink is a bit blotchy on the background. With my atemps a black background works well. All that said you've captured a nice pattern, I will be looking out for other images as you go along, not to cc but to see if I can pickup any tips.

    Much better than my first attempt(s).

    This was a tutorial I used.

    I prefer the lower part to be narrow IYSWIM.

    A few stray pink bits, I do like clean BGs.

    Ghees.

    I used that one too. He is very good at explaining in a non technical way.

    You've got the 3 key stages of the smoke effect here: smooth climb, rolling and chaos.
    You've identified the need for a clean background, I do find black suits my taste.
    Still, a great effort
