Thanks for the posts on the previous images. I was trying some different stuff but I just wasn't feeling it in the piece. Please enjoy this new shot. I feel much better about it. Thanks again!

Nice composition and lighting. BTW, if that's pistachio, it *is* more bitter than sweet ... unless she got a double scoop cone to replace it.

Very good, as usual, but why does the floor have such a weird colour?

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

Thank you AuntiPode and Yakim.

Yakim, I agree it feels like she is standing on the Orion nebula . I'm still uncertain about the shot. I may work with the color in the image or I may just shoot something entirely different. I'll leave it as a placeholder for now. Sometimes the vision is stronger than the results.

I'd guess the floor is an old worn and well scoured surface, something like linoleum.

Hello Mike,
I like the story this picture tells. No explanation is needed. Nice work, as usual. It fits the WA perfectly.

Hi Mike,
This is quite different to your usual style i love the colours of the ice cream and the shoes, they compliment each other well. Fits the WA so looks like a runner to me.
Take care
Mark

Hey, Mike. Both shots are trademark, spot-on Vipermike, but I like the first better. I realize the emphasis on this last shot is specifically on the ice cream, but the story-in-my-mind of your first photo is much more intriguing. On the other hand, the assignment is "sweet," so I know how you may be torn by both pics. Either way, superb work, once again.--Frank

I like them both but in this one the floor is less emphasized.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

Dropping your ice cream ain't so sweet but the resulting picture sure is.

I like your approach on the assignment, sad to see ice cream wasted though

I do like how the pink and green contrast each other. I also love mint chocolate chip ice cream. My favorite! Great job as usual.

I think I liked the original more? The color of the floor was wicked on how that played into it all.

I think this is the best so far of the three, though to be honest i think they have all been good. Like the selective colour and lighting is as ever excellent. Now if only Fred has seen mine and given me that 100 vote head start i may just have a chance.
Take care
Mark

Like always, it's a very good shot. That said, I don't like the fact that the background is not uniform. Some is dark and some is bright.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.
