I actually don't care for Haagen dazs... but I needed small containers of ice cream, and these sounded better than ben & jerry's. :D

My daughter was having a bad day, so she and my husband went to buy fudgsicles (see the door). They were kind enough to buy 5 cartons of ice cream for me. (Somehow my family didn't think this was too bad of a challenge to enter. :)

My freezer was too small, so I cleared out a shelf of the refrigerator. I didn't notice that the door had a bottle of juice and a bottle of water that I should have removed!

I put the 10-22 lens on my 7D and stuck it in the back of the fridge. It was too dark inside (our light has been burned out for months) so I put a hotshoe flash next to the camera and bounced it off the side of the fridge so that it was not too harsh. The reflections were a happy surprise.

Btw, the chocolate peanut butter is awesome!! Well... it was awesome...

I didn't know the fridge could be a pro softbox. Congratulations on top 6!

congrats on the top10 finish!
So nice to know you liked the chocolate peanut butter. Converted yet? ;)
p.s.
I keep bottles of water in the freezer too. The glass shelf mostly gives it away that it's the fridge part but I know some people like their IC a bit soft so the fridge gets the honor of ice cream, sometimes.

Super sharp. Nicely vibrant. Good reflection. Not working with a whole lot here but you've really turned it into something quite nice. Great entry.

How odd - I've never seen a freezer with glass shelves - just the refrig. But ice cream wouldn't be in the fridge. I'm soooo confused :-)

I like the perspective, very creative idea. How did your camera fair being stuck in the freezer?

Yummy, save the caramel for me. Love the lighting and the reflection puts this on the top of my list

Now we're talking! Two of my favorites are there, Chocolate with PB and Mango. Nice job with the lighting. The reflections are a welcome addition.
