    Lol Siddharth, you want a tut made for everything. He probably just duplicated it, used a good gradient over the entire image and set that to overlay or color.

    I'm guessing what they do is set up a good background, light some stix, set a slow shutterspeed and semi-wide aperture to get a nice 'rich' look to the smoke. Anything involving the post production I have no real idea. Maybe they just made an Overlay layer and painted the colors on? :p

    I'm pretty sure they're incense sticks.

    That is very nice! Love the first one. I saw a tut on how to do that ages ago somewhere, can't remember where now! But it's definately hard and takes time.
