Icebreakers


(Click on the image to see the Complete picture)

Icebreakers liquid ice (small liquid mint, brand name "Icebreakers") on a compact disk. This was a test for how shallow I can get the depth of field to be with a tripod.

I haven't been feeling very well, so I won't be regular with my posts for a few days :)

The pic is good. Personally, I would have preferred a bit more sharp, but that is just me.

Thank you everyone for wishing me, I am feeling much better now. The irritation on my right eye is almost gone, I guess I just needed some rest.

Mohib: These balls were really small (about 1/3 of a centimeter in diameter) plus there was no texture for sharpening. The shallow depth of field was on pupose, because I shot this photo on my stove and you could have seen the stove dials in the background ;)

moi: Thank you :)

abu ali: You are right, I really missed my right eye :) Thank you so much for your prayers, I really apprecitate it! Bantay are called "marbles" in US and I'm sure they are easily available. These balls were really small and filled with liquid mint (1/3 cm in diameter)

Ali (Photographer): Thanks for your wish :)

Natasha: I dont like Icebreakers liquid ice, which is probably why I had this packet lying around. And for the record, I hate the Duff sisters :)

Sarah: Thank you for the wish :)

Get well soon.
The photo is amazing. Just one doubt though. I have no idea as to what "Ice Breakers" are. :-)

Simply awesome.
can't believe these are ice breakers in the spotlight.

i pray u get well soon.

Jnarin: Ice breakers are little balls filled with liquid mint. I think the balls are made of the same material capsules are made of because they disolve on your tongue releasing the liquid mint

mei: Thank you for the prayers, I am feeling much better already :)
