Alright here is the proper version! (V2) And by proper I mean what I originally envisioned. All that had to be done was to change the position of my hand and then rotate the photo by 180 and presto! Now it looks like the smoke is falling and slipping through my hand. Funny enough I tried doing this with both my hands but that doesnt really work. If you don't know what I mean put your hands next to each other with your palms facing down, your thumbs should be next to each other now do it with your palms facing up, now your pinky is facing up. So it just wouldn't look natural, I'd actually have to go upside down to make it look nature if I wanted to use both my hands for this shot. Well I'll leave V1 of this up for now, I'll think about deleting it later seeing how I like this one more.
