This is cute... very very original idea! I like it... from the thumbnail I thought there were goldfish in the icecubes! hehehe... I'm relieved that it's chillies instead. Very nicely done. I'm adding it to my faves

Good idea. Very creative.

The lighting is a little hot on some of the ice cubes but the matte finish to the plastic bag (my assumption) under the cubes in the shot helps to dull down the light. This shows some forethought. I like the way the hot subjects tend to protrude from the cold storage.

This was good for a definite giggle - very cute. Nice layout of the entombed peppers, also. I wonder whether softer lighting might have been better - the light on the peppers and ice cubes works well, but the reflections in the water droplets and off the plastic (?) backdrop, I find a bit distracting.

Very interesting concept! I don't think you have to keep all of the complete blocks in the frame, so you could get a little closer and let part of the out blocks cross the border. This might help take some attention away from the background, which is a little to dominate. Very creative, so keep working on the composition.

excellent idea

I like the idea, but the lighting needs some work - it's a bit flat at the moment. Looks like you used a flash - perhaps try a longer exposure with ambient light?

That is very very original. Great shot idea.

Hehe, great idea! The black background might be something different, looks like a black plastic bag to me. Like it 7

nice idea, im not crazy about the composition or the background, mabye a different angle would give it some pizazz

NIce image.. love the reds very vibrant

Oh yeah, what a great idea! I don't like the lighting though, which looks like it was a bit harsh. The shadows indicate that there was one light source which wasn't diffused. I think you could have made more of the reflective qualities of the surface that the ice is on... I don't think enough thought went into the composition of the ice cubes. The empty space at the top left especially doesn't work for me. The water droplets are very effective however. 6

Hehe. Cool pun! Looks as if the icecubes are placed on a binliner though, and that is hardly very appealing.

Interesting idea but I find the background distracting and there is something about the overall composition that doesn't appeal to me. Maybe it's the blockiness.

Ha! Now that's a clever idea! Nice composition! Light seems just a bit harsh. Nice work.
