What is "pharting" and, aside from changing the color palette, what does it do?

Phart is short for photo art- meaning the photo has been significantly changed in PP (In this case using photoshop). The term was coined by Rudiman on the
DPReview forums many years ago.

I don't recall encountering the term "pharting" before. If looked at phonetically, this term is pronounced like a slang word for passing often foul-smelling gas, implying an unintended or inferior result. For what it's worth, I liked the original version better, where the color scheme better conveyed the concept of encasement in ice. I also liked the first image in the series. The third image gave a hint of another subject had too many ice bubbles to allow a good look at the subject encased in ice.

Thanks for the comments scoundrel. there is actually nothing embedded in the ice. I use coloured card behind the ice as the refraction caused by the bubbles makes the bubbles show up more in the shots.

Interesting! I could have sworn that image #2 (and #4) had a beer can as the background; but on second thought, that particular brand of beer would most likely be much less popular and harder to get in your part of the world than it is here.
