A Frozen Rose by Cindy Gosselin

August 2019 - A Frozen Rose

About the Image(s)

This image, although creative, is a straight out of camera shot. This rose was frozen overnight in distilled water in a 3-4” deep container. I believe the “bubbles” were created by the emission of carbon dioxide as the “fresh” rose slowly froze. Once frozen, I removed it from its container and positioned it for the composition I wanted. I then lit it from both behind and from the sides with flashes to bring out the details in both the rose and the frozen surroundings.

This round’s discussion is now closed!

Very creative and interesting.
I think it's probably worthwhile for you to experiment with addditional creative variations.   Posted: 08/03/2019 16:53:38

The bubbles really make it don't they? Fabulous effect in the centre though I would tend to cut away a little more of the milky outside. Trouble is that you want to keep it off-centre. Fascinating. Try some more.....   Posted: 08/21/2019 15:18:36

Great idea with the rose...Have never tried to do this, but think I will now that I see how effectively the end result is....good detail in the bubbles and petals...   Posted: 08/23/2019 16:52:27
