Froze a load of garbage in a block of ice because I thought it would look good, and it would be something a bit different. Then I put the flower on there as a kind of focal point, and it adds something to the photo. The annoying this was, there is a wait of 4-5 hours after each set of shots, while I wait for it to re-freeze.

Our friend photoshop reaks havoc again I see. Beat it punk.

Very clever and creative.

Interesting shot.... I don't like the angle though. - bamaster (8)

awesome. i'm sure this is this week's winner. love your creativity, implementation and the message. i'm curious how you did this ... it almost looks like you froze the candy wrappers or something. i'm sure you'll tell us on monday. gr8photos (10).

What a great idea. Love the composition with the water, it takes away the rough edges I guess and I think that is one of the things that make it a great photo.
10/09/2002 12:41:00 PM
I reallylike this picture, great idea!!, nice lighting an focus, I don't get the title though.
10/09/2002 11:20:00 AM
Frozen in ice? Pretty cool. Really interesting method, and definately creative and requiring effort. The flower is a nice touch too. Excelent colors and your focus and clarity are quite good. I love the idea behind this. I also like the angle and framing/cropping you have chosen. You have taken the shot at a moment, with the ice partially melted, so that we can tell exactly what is going on. Greta shot. Good luck in the challenge. ~Hbunch7187~

Nice... Interesting, colorful... in this challenge, that's enough
10/09/2002 02:59:00 AM
I like this concept verymuch!!
10/09/2002 02:58:00 AM
I would have scored this higher without the flower, it's so fun to look at and has such an energetic angle, yet that flower vaguely annoys me. :)

Such an odd looking ice cube?
10/08/2002 06:05:00 PM
Great Stuff!
10/08/2002 05:52:00 PM
wow! this is cool.i can see it in a magazine. i would like to know the process of this shot. 10--shutterfly
10/08/2002 03:19:00 PM
A surprisingly visually appealing photo, considering what it's made of. And a £20 note in there as well. I like this a lot.
10/07/2002 11:10:00 PM
excellent photo, but more art than garbage
10/07/2002 10:50:00 PM
Wow - this is a really creative photo. I'm not sure what it's all about, but I like the colors and composition.
10/07/2002 10:40:00 PM
How cool is this? (no pun intended)
10/07/2002 10:30:00 PM
Wow. Amazing. You went out of your way to freeze these wrappers. However, I gave you a 10 not for the effort, but for the idea and the flawless execution.
10/07/2002 09:05:00 PM
These colors are awesome. Technically, this is a great shot. The lighting and focus are excellent. I especially love the area around the subject. Was it on glass or something? The water really makes the picture more interesting. Even capturing a little more of the blue (like in the upper right corner) would be cool. The flower is the final touch that makes this a 10 and adds that extra wow. Great job! ~indi

the thing i like best about this is the saturated colors. 2nd best thing i like is the background. it's hard to tell what im seeing here but it's graphically interesting without being too busy. good job. mag99

very nice. how did you do that? -7 milton
10/07/2002 02:26:00 PM
Possibly the most original approach to the subject this week, and also a technically spot-on and aesthetically intriguing image that sticks in the mind. Very impressive...
10/07/2002 01:48:00 PM

10/07/2002 01:39:00 PM

Neat image. Do you often freeze used wrappers and twenty pound notes? seasick - 9.
After checking all the other images, I've decided to up this to a ten - it certainly deserves it.
