I have to admit, I was a little drunk when I voted on this challenge, I'm sure there are several people who didn't appreciate my critiques. In the future I will refrain from drunken voting :)

Thanks for all your feedback ladies and gents. Took a million shots to get the mist looking good. I was in two minds about cropping out the frozen whipped ice-cream in the foreground and decided to keep it to add balance to the composition as well as help to show the nitro mist.

A great concept that was very well composed and executed. The best of the challenge in my eye.

The smoke makes the food look a bit scary, and ice cream should never be scary : ) The light is done very well though.

this looks like something rotting on the counter

i think i would have liked it better if the piece of bread or cake in the bottom of the shot was cropped out, just doens't seem to go..but very cool desert, and a nice pic

My mouth is watering. Love the contrast in colours and the silky effect of the mist.

Gorgeous, and amazing fog capture, although I think you could have cropped out the lower portion. The only thing I don't like about this is the title.

Waaaay beautiful. Hope it was still edible after it's nitro bath.

The cool smoke adds a nice touch of mystery to this photo. I like how well its lit, that brings out a lot of the details in the food.
