Is this practice for the? very nice, I like the second one, though maybe a darker background could have helped to make the smoke stand out more.

I reckon you could improve those quite a lot with levels/curves. IMO it would also look better if you cropped out the bit of table at the bottom and just had a semi-abstract with the smoke. Well done, been meaning to try some of these myself

I actually haven't done much to them, just brightened them to what they were on camera... I will run them through PS later today though. This was to show Ozzie Paul how our flash (Metz) works off camera more than anything, and that there wasn't banding at 1/200th with the rf602 triggers
Once I've processed them I'll stick them up again.
Not for - not that good yet lolol, still got too much to learn!
Both good though I like 2# the best.
Thanks for that. Nice shots.
Even though the Metz flash isn't mentioned they seem to work fine.
I think the banding is just with cameras because there is no dedicated flash triggers to suit them. I will get the version as they have the same PC sync cord plugs. (450,500,550D)

That really makes the smoke stand out, looks pretty good.
