Hot Days

Nikon D80, f/8.0 120 mm ISO No Flash
Nothing says HOT better than cold ice cream melting in the sun. YUMMY
Cropped so only the black plate (not sidewalk) was showing, did a color boost and added a border.
Please CC!

Oh I totally wish it was "hotenoughtomeltyourcones" weather out here!!! I LOVE this idea, the composition, the colors and the border... it all goes SOOO WELL together!!! Me Likey.

Love the creamy orange color and the textured cone. Superb I say!

I don't think I would have had the will power to just sit and watch ice cream melt... it would have been in my stomach long before I got around to taking a picture. :0)

My only CC would be to try a different angle. Instead of looking down on it, get down on it's level. Maybe looking the ice cream head on, with a wide angle to really elongate the cone. Just an idea...

Great idea, and neat picture! I think it would've been cool to have it melting ON the sidewalk, but then you couldn't lick the drips... ;)

Breezi said...

Man! I can't believe you let a good cone die a horrible death just for the sake of art!

Well.. It is way cute, so it was worth it :)

I love how you can see the little ice cream bubbles in the melted pool of creamy orange.

WOW. THIS LOOKS DELICIOUS!

I love this idea...I too wish I could see it a little more elongated like Char suggested...just for another interesting angle. SO cool!

I like the simplicity of this photo. Focus on the object, and nothing more.

This picture made me so sad...until I realized you took it on a plate so you could still eat the ice cream! It's a beautiful photo--I like the way you've framed it, though I must admit the way you've taken the picture it strikes me as something I'd expect to see on a demotivators poster.

Hope it was as tasty to eat as it is to look at!

Definitely a hot idea! Love the melted ice cream--it FEELS hot--and the colors (great thinking with the background btw)! The only thing I might have changed would have been to have the ice cream cone at a diagonal. Love the pic though!

Love the colors.

Great shot! I just want to lick it up. I'm addicted to ice cream and I hate when the heat takes it away.

I really like this- the coloring and the movement. I actually like the angle but wish it had more room- you could add more black ("stretch" the canvas).

It is a good picture with the dtails of the melted parts. The way it is framed with the white boarder i keep looking at it and it reminds me of those demotivators.
