thanks for the comments, being my first entry on DPC I think lesson one for me is remember to be less subtle, but for all you Americans just search Wikipedia for 99 Flake and you'll get it....

Oh what a pity this didn't score higher. I guess this totally missed it with the non-UK voters. If anybody else reads this comment, a 99 is a bit of British thing. Two chocolate flakes dipped into the ice-cream as shown above. I guess you got a lot of "did not meet challenge" votes. Way too subtle for people not in the "know". (I am a Brit, so got it)

I really like this image, sorry it didn't score better for you but with more US than UK people here I reckon that didn't do you any favours :-( I'm a UK'er so I got it ;-)

I find this image very pleasing. Love the warm hues. And for people who don't get the 9 - guys, just look harder.

Reminds me of a summers day when I was a kid :-) Really like the colours and DOF in this shot, nicely done.

an interesting shot, but without the title it does not bring to mind "nine"

yummy, i think the only problem you are going to run into is that people overseas are not going to know that this is a chocolate flake and won't get the connection. It is a very English thing and makes me long for the long barmy days of sitting by the lake with one of those dribbling down the sides of the cones and the mad dash to get to it before it goes over ones hands! 9

What did I miss? How does this relate to 9? Nice warm colors though.

I've tried and tried but I have no idea how this photo relates to the #9. It looks good though!
