This 2013 year of Snake is meant for steady progress and attention to detail. Focus and discipline will be necessary for you to achieve what you set out to create. The Snake is the sixth sign of the Chinese Zodiac, which consists of 12 Animal Signs. It is the enigmatic, intuitive, introspective, refined and collected of the Animals Signs. Ancient Chinese wisdom says a Snake in the house is a good omen because it means that your family will not starve. (From HanBan.com)

this is definitely something different from what we usually see in your photos.But equally attractive and having some kind of unique,pensive mood.The incense,the smoke and blurry background-beautiful juxtaposition.

very impressive and very beautiful shot of this snake festival of magnificent razor sharp smoke and details with fantastic blurred BG, colors, perfect clarity. Very different picture you ever posted. I like it a lot. TFS and have a wonderful WE,

Brilliant detail of a joss stick, wonderful closeup pin sharp in natural color tones. A cracking capture by concentrating on main interest blurring the bg and the rising smokes are very real indeed, a good point, well made although we don't all worship the same God. Brilliant presentation of an interesting subject and a symbolic shot. Well done

A different kind of subject for you, Eleu, and an effective one. The smoke curls are wonderful, and really drew me into the shot, while the texture of the ash and incense is wonderfully sharp. The strong DOF almost allows one to miss the distinctive shape of the cobra behind it, but only almost.

Nice idea to celebrate the year of the snake, I like the fantasy shapes of the smoke, well done

Lovely swirling smoke. I like the idea and the composition tremedously and perhaps even more if the BG had less higlights - just a thought. A creative image - TFS.
Kind Regards, Ann
