This artist, whose Second Life name I do not know, is one of those people I would love to be — she has a mastery of camera, composition and post-production that turns her photographs into something approaching hand-drawn-and-painted art.  I enjoy most of her work, but this one hits all the buttons — the composition and positioning of the model is perfectly framed in the shot; the makeup draws your attention straight into the photo; the hairstyle and accessories frame her face nicely; and then the extended hand with its pipe and swirling smoke pull your eye across to the remainder of the photo.  The spotlight adds emphasis on her, while creating excellent shadows to emphasize the drama of the photo.

Well done indeed!
