i kept it simple..did everything all in one layer! (does not mean it was easy, getting all the colors and contrast right lol)
i played with the colors, contrasts and brightness, i applied this matrix background and did the same thing, then combined the two and voila! (5 years and 2655 days ago)

I just don;t understand what the hostility is all about..
Author, the image is visually pretty simple. That doesn't mean anything. I've seen very simple art get high marks. As a matter of fact this wouldn't look half bad as a desktop background, but the reason for the comments is because of the similarity to the original source.
You do have to remember that this is a contest website, and even though the image looks good in my eyes, you have to ask yourself how it would fare in a competition.
Again, there is no reason for the hostility. And i like the image you created. Aesthetically it's very vibrant and reminds me of light painting at low shutter speeds in photography. Good luck
thank you Ponti55, I will take note of your advice! It is fairly simple, but I couldn't think of anything else to do with the smoke, a matrix effect came to my eyes when I seen the original photo, but I did'nt want it to look awkward.
I will definately try something else in the meantime
i like how they deleted their comments after you said something ponti! put them in their rude places!
There was no hostility meant in the comment I deleted. I chose to delete it out of fairness to someone who made a very simple entry which didn't say much to me. It still doesn't, but I don't enjoy being treated like some kind of ogre for making an honest comment, so here I am saying basically the same thing. Like it or don't. That's what the comment section is for. Author, maybe in later entries you will dazzle me with your genius and I will praise you to the heavens.
Expressing your opinion in the form of a sarcastic question is not the way you should do it.. I understand some entries don't appeal to you, and maybe you should show that via the way you vote and not the way you comment.
"Are you kidding me?" Doesn't help anyone solve a problem.
It was "Are you serious"...not everyone submits a serious entry.
I like the colors...
You can find a matrix font on dafont.com, and try to experiment with warping the matrix like the smoke comes out of it, maybe some blend with the codes, if you want to, and for fun
Font is called: Matrix Code - search it on dafont and not on the big "font.com" ad, they have on front page.
thank you graymval! i will surely get around to it when i officially have the time, probably around tomorrow or wednesday. thanks for the great tips!
It may be simple, but it is likable.
