In this contest, we are going to freeze stuff!
Your goal is to take any photo and freeze the main subject. Do this by either turning it into ice or by covering it with a layer of ice. It's important that you only freeze the main subject, so it can stand out from the rest of the environment. Don't create any freezing effects on the rest of the photo. You can, however, use a winter landscape as a background if the contrast with the subject is big enough. At least 50% of the subject has to be frozen.
If you don't know how to achieve this effect, have a look at this excellent tutorial from Blue Lightning TV: Create an ice sculpture of someone. In this video, he's explaining how to freeze a person. You are not limited to people though, the subject can be any object or animal. In the comments, you can find download links for the brushes that he used in the tutorial. You are allowed to use these custom brushes, but it's not required.
