Day 35. August 12, 2010. See comments for previous photo.
This was almost a discard since the smoke was blurred. But after transforming to b/w, this turned out really well. There's a little excess smoke in the top-left that I was thinking about cloning away, but decided to leave this completely without processing (besides converting to b/w).
100mm f/2.8L IS Macro @ f/11. 1/20s. ISO 100. 580EX II from camera left and above match tip, 1ft away, at 1/8 power.
