My wife threatened to kill me for stoking up the fireplace in July, but I liked this idea... Snowball was made with a shaved ice machine. A tad of saturation added, cropped a bit and some unsharp mask applied at the end.

I like this one and really hope it does well... But that's always been the kiss of death for me so I'm guessing I'll get around a 5.2 :)

Congratulations. You have successfully focused in on fire. Many of the ones I've seen in this challenge have not been able to do so.

Nice idea. I missed the snow ball at first - would like to see a composition that focuses in more of the snowball. It would look more like hell if we couldn't see the brisk at the back of the foreplace. I like the leaping flames andI like the colors in the flames - that purple at the bottom looks cool - I mean hot.

Ha! I see it and I get it! The flames are really pretty. I would of like a tighter crop but this is spot on for the challenge.

This one had me chuckle. Took me a while to actually FIND the snowball though - I think you would have done better taking a flash with a snoot - or even just a torch - and lit up the snowball further. 8 for the idea and execution though.
