Meant to leave a comment on your picture before the challenge ended but didn't so will leave one now. Love your pic - it reminds me so much of when I was in college. My roommate and I would go buy a half gallon of ice cream and eat the whole thing because we didn't have a fridge in our dorm room! Your picture show just how I would feel afterwards.

Very funny, I like the forced perspective and the choice of lighting starting at the feet - showing that this habit is done in hiding/darkness. The border actually helps quite a bit with your composition to give it a boundary with the grey background of the website.

The shadow area is I bit too dark, I think. Nice idea for the topic, though.

A bit dark around the middle, otherwise good. Nice interpretation of a bad habit...

Very funny. Lighting in the upper left corner is a little distracting. I know you didn't want to ruin the carpet but some melted ice cream on the floor running to the spoon and possibly to the subjects mouth would have made it more realistic!

a little too bright at the top

Marvelous whimsey. I always thought chocolate would be be the most deadly flavor. Good composition, Needs just a little more contrast or more fill light from overhead, I'd like to see a bit more detail around the face/head. 9

This is a bit too dark. I like the perspective. I generally don't like goofy, set-up shots but this one isn't bad. I upped my vote by one after looking a second time to write this comment.

Very funny. Great idea and pretty well executed too. (pun intended)

While Ben & Jerry's may have been a better choice from where I sit, I love it! Technically I think the shot may have been better served by a narrower brightness gradiant, i.e. I find the brightness of the top too far contrasted with the darkness of the bottom. Mind, you, not really tradgic enough to take away from the shot!

Hilarious! Great idea and very original. I think some soft foreground lighting would have help to bring out some of the details on the ice cream and the top of the body.

As I'm on dial-up your picture took a while to load, so as it loaded I thought "here's another drugs reference". When I saw the ice-cream I laughed. It's all in the anticipation. Technically the bright spot at the top is probably a bit too bright, but it's a good picture.

Nice photo! The title and the composition are very interesting and it leads the eye towards the main subject. Very nicely done......... I would have preffered Ben & Jerry's myself ; )

ive never seen anyone collapse on the carpet from ice cream, but good enough for me :-)

This is creative. Nice picture, like the B&W treatment. Sharp, nice lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/19/2004 04:19:02 PM
This made me laugh out loud! I wish the lighting were a little more even or aimed at the front instead of the feet.

Follow-up: I'm still laughing at this several hours later. +1

oh well should have gotten a fatter person to die and your lighting is horrible? Where is the vomit the covulging spastic death roll? Nothing to indicate overdosing no shit no vomit not spastic death roll to a silent rest and juxposing of anything erratic sorry its sad to see and not greatly lit either.

Funny image...it might have looked a little better if the lid and container were separated, looking more like they fell after the last bite...
