I got a pair of my black basketball shorts and layed them over a box, then I pinned the other half on the kitchen wall. Then my friend held a fluorescent light above the ice cube. I took the picture with my Nikon D70s using a tripod.

Hey there from the Critique Club

Camera Work/Technical: Great focus and a terrific job isolating the subject from the background. I also like your chosen white balance and color balance adjustment.

Lighting: Very nice, even lighting. This one would have been easy to lose detail in highlights, but you did not. Very nice exposure and lighting.

Composition/Content: I believe the the centered composition really detracts from this image's potential. I agree with ifwolpert in the fact that I'd like to see more of the ice. Also, the blue color you chose for the border is too bright. It competes with the subject for the eye's attention.

My Opinion: I think by simply removing the border and giving the voter more of the ice to look at would have vaulted this score up considerably.

I really like the "icebeg" and the colors. The blue color in the border contasts quite a bit with the ice, however.

I like the blues and purples on the ice. Really don't like the blue border.

Not a fan of the border, but otherwise pretty cool
