*Greetings from the Critique Club*

Congrats on a great score and strong finish!

Compositionally this is beautiful. There is one strong, main subject, with smaller bubbles leading my eye throughout the image - love that effect. But I have to admit that the play of the pink and the yellow did not work completely for my eye. The yellow in the large bubble was so vibrant, and the color almost seemed to move into a bit of orange on the left side. That main bubble also seems a bit harsh compared to the softness in most of the rest of the image. The pink in the lower half of the image I found gorgeous, but then at the top of the image, on the right, where it mixed some with the yellow, it came off a bit 'dirty' looking to me. In the smaller bubbles the colors are great, but that large bubble just didn't seem to complement completely.

Technically I don't see any flaws in this image. The bubbles are very sharp, the lighting is soft and lovely. The pattern of your background is reflected perfectly in those smaller bubbles. Great effect!

Well done.

Grats on your top ten finish Janine! Love the golden color of the 'Mothership' against the pastel hue background.

lolol The title makes me laugh..
I really like the background and with the bubbles it gives a fun playful effect on things. I like how some bubbles give off some patterns on the inside of things
