Excellent Jose! Very well done! I totally understand Addiction! This is nice in BW, it has more impact than color! Hope you can quit soon, but I would keep that fancy lighter!

Great details with the message RELAX. BR JV

I can't call it as in the title... Missing element pointing the addiction out. This photo says: "A man drinking and smoking" That's all. No further story... (written by a 28 years smoker who quit smoking 8 years ago...)

Olá José, está bem dentro do espírito de um tema dificil, que foi muito bem escolhido pelo David porque pungente. Abstraio-me e contemplo sua foto (afinal é por isso que estamos aqui) que é extremamente bem composta e lhe dou meus cumprimentos.

Hi Jose,

A simple, yet effective depiction of at least two addictions. The one to the left I am very familiar with ;)

I like the timing to catch the way brandy tends to run down the sides of a snifter after a sip. Well done, and a good contribution to the theme.


Hello, Jose -
I love the feel and atmosphere of this image; the glass and ornate lighter are in sharp focuse while the hand of the smoker, balancing the image, is softer; the smoke curling out of the end of the cigarrette is a nice touch. Great idea to use monochrome, which enhances the classic feel. Excellent.

I do relate to this very much Jose. A smooth, moody, and graceful depiction. It looks so good in that chosen tone. Good work MF.


Hi Jose,
Nice presentation of the lighter,cup of wine and hand with a cigaret on a table,
I like the black & white and beautiful contrast of light,
a well done composition.

Nice mood with this Jose - fits the theme perfectly! I like the simple composition with the focus on the glass and lighter...
