This is a pretty awesome idea! The pose, the lighting, the b&w are very well done. I would prefer the water tap turned the other way, or not at all at the frame, and the bench a little bit more clean so it could give a more minimal look at the overall picture. Very freshly picture!

I ran all out of those in my fridge, reminds me to restock. Cool idea and nicely executed.

This is kind of fun. I like the use of B&W and you've covered the tonal range quite well. Not sure that the "Framing" part of the challenge is covered as intended (foreground or background elements)...just an observation. Good luck in the challenge.

Shadow on her face for me is a little distracting, but one of the most original shots on here, 8

The lighting (from under the sink?) is a bit harsh, but it's a creative idea.

She's too hot, the refridgerator will never cool her down.
Great imagination!
