I did so many fire shots for this challenge, our house stank of lighter fuel for two days ;-)
I was trying to get the flame behind the piece of ice which turned out to be harder than I thought it would (the ice tended to slither about all over the place). However, as soon as I saw this one on the camera display, I knew it was the one. The 90 ccw rotation gave it just that bit of extra zing it needed and I really like the way it turned out.
Thanks for the comments, favourite and the votes.

Wonderful studio work (as usual). You vision to see the possibilities and how it could work best is what separates you from so many others that try similar work. Kudos on a well deserved top 5.

I think a waterdrop on top of the ice cube would have put this on top. ;-) Great job - congrats on 5th!

I would love to see the full symmetrical version of this, however your choice to crop (or shoot originally) is smart in regards to many DPC voters.
