I had never noticed the ice cubes and the lollipop switch between the mirror image and the "real" image.

Lots of hardwork and I like the image, except the fact that is bugging me is the reflection of the wineglass with ice in it... I think you forgot something there.... its the one thing that is bugging me a little...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great shot, but shouldn't parts of the fingers that touched the cream also be "vanished"? Didn't get a chance to vote on this, but this minor detail would've bugged me.

It's always very difficuly to pull of a shot like this. Anyway congrats on the ribbon.

This is very good. Great idea and all. Includes every object. /Fantastic/ idea for vanishing. But since this placed first, I'm a bit disappointed at the odd use of the wine glass, the ice, and the lollipop. It seems like everyone did the same exact thing. They stuck objects into the wine glass and placed them in places. Something actually vanished in this picture which was definitely good. But since it placed first, I'm a tad bit disappointed that the objects weren't used in the vanishing process. Still, I guess I can't say much. As Pawdrix said, this is the fourth highest rated image ever. Congratulations. You deserve it. :)

Very clever. I'd like to try this - the photo not the cream. This would do well even in field larger than 10 contestants. Wish the face was a little larger in the frame. I wonder how many will notice the ice reflected as the lollipop.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/02/2007 02:54:52 PM
I like the photoshop element of it but i wish they'd done the whole face. Anyway it seems like a spin off that old rugrats episode where they try to disappear using Angelica's mom's vanishing cream... does anyone remember that??
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/02/2007 02:10:48 PM
Hilarious! I like the idea, but the colors need more pop... seems slightly blue. I like the lighting!

1) Congrats for getting this in on time!
2) Great idea for such a grouping of stuff.
3) Why didn't his hand vanish! (I like your decision to alter just the face.
4) But where is the sock? The sock must have vanished first!
WAIT! My wife just spotted the "toes sock". I thought it was toilet paper!

Hilarious! Well done for such short notice.

10 for the creativity!
