This is GREAT! Thank you all for taking the time to vote. My 3rd challenge and managed to climb in 5th place. Further more, I’m so happy for the 30+ comments – the greatest encouragement of all, especially after getting the shot only a few minutes before deadline. As with all my other entries, I barely had enough time to crop, resize and save. Therefore, this 5th place is a good incentive to find more time for photography (including post-processing).

Now, back to earth ;) The way the setup was done, if anybody interested:

- orange background
- base : matte printer paper rest with a circular hole a bit smaller than the globe (enough to keep it ¾ above)
- globe: 1$ glass globe (Dollarama)
- lights: one underneath (flashlight), one lateral (reading flashlight) behind a Coca-Cola glass to throw those “flames” at the background
- ice: chopped ice around the globe – not so easy to keep it there at about 28C

Fantastic, great idea and realization!
I'm not 100% sure about the visible edge of the paper, but I can't find a solution... maybe curving it down?
"flames" are also very nice.

Love this one. I hope we get to see how you did it. (10)

Clever. I like the background and how it gives the impression of flames, but overall the shot is a bit dark. Bringing up those nice orange shades would really give it some kick I think. Nice shot overall tho.

Interesting idea.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/13/2006 10:32:37 PM
Good idea, very current. I think the idea has a lot of potential and if you were going to do more with it, I'd suggest a different base or shooting from a lower angle so that you see less of it. Still like it 7.

This is a terrifying notion beautifully done! I really like the warmth created by your lighting contrasted with the cool effect of the melty part.
