The Soul Train #2

This is the next one in the series of my first smoke shots. I decided to do something a bit different from what I've seen with this smoke shots which is to make it multicoloured. I'm also very happy with this one. I'll be revisiting these again with the aim of producing a configuration that is a bit more complicated, wish me luck.

By the way, Streetphone is back but with a twist this time. I've decided not to use my camera phone anylonger as I'm having problems getting it to connect to my laptop. It's now my Black and White Street photography blog. Check it out

Liking the black background and yes, the duo colour's nice.
Jide Alakija: It's actually trio colour. wink Thanks Jamey.
Wow, how did you do the multicolor?
Jide Alakija: I masked three seperate Hue/saturation adjustment layers over the colourised image, does that make sense?

This one looks a little more complicated then the last but I like the simple lines and the colour from yesterday but don't stop now.
Jide Alakija: Thanks.
