What's happening to it in the first photo? That looks cool whatever you did to make that effect on it.

The second one is nice, but the lighting being uneven makes me very, very angry. Isn't this supposed to be a stress RELIEF ball? :-P

It seems there is smoke coming from underneath through the grate. Cool shots

Yes there is smoke coming up from it in the first one. I was kind of going for the irony of it being a stress relief ball but the ball itself being angry lol. If that makes any sense. Glad you guys like it though.

Like them both and can see where you were going on making the second one creepy. You sure succeeded. The lighting added to the effect IMHO.

Very nice looking shots here. I really like the first one with the smoke coming off the ball as it kind of adds a meaning to the photo. I also really like the colors in the photo and the contrast look really nice as well, thanks for sharing.

So I was having fun with the smoke concept, so I shot some more today. Unfortunately I suck at editing so its not quite what I wanted but I think it still looks cool. Just dont look closely, lol!
