We were on a tour of the Blue Bell Creamery in Brenham Texas when I saw they were selling the ice cream cartons for $1.00 each. I guess people use them as planters.

"We Eat All We Can And We Sell The Rest" is one of their marketing slogans. So I thought it might make a good product shot theme.

I used fake ice cream based on this recipe

Worked great. although we did burn out the hand mixer. ;-)

Used natural light through a southern facing window.

Nothing special on the processing.

Cloned out on spot refection on the gold band on the lid.

What's the other flavor and where do they sell Blue Bell Ice Cream? Looks delicious.

A very good product shot, but maybe better if the ice cream was in nice round balls like out of an ice cream scoop

Not a fan of white background shots but when done with some creativity like this one it is much better to look at. Great concept.

I really like this. It's well composed and executed. The title is pithy. It's totally appealing to the eye - and therefore meets the challenge wonderfully.

Nice crisp photo, but the bowl with the ice cream is just slightly off center, which is annoying - it should either be centered exactly or off to side.

I think that the product features too much here. The tubs in the background seem to serve to confuse rather that reinforce.

I hate you...not really, I just miss getting Blue Bell!! I love the shot, bokeh is good and the colors really pop.

Accomplished execution.

Good shot of a notoriously difficult subject. The bowls are a bit of a distraction though- the blue stripe is a bit ugly and looks out of place.
