Another in my string of banal objects plainly photographed and minimally processed, just to prove I can do it :-) Egg coming to boil in teflon pan.

Image was essentially monochrome even in RGB mode, so I left it there; adjusted tonalities a little with selective color, leveled, sharpened, cropped, resized, border and save for web.

Have only now found this CIRCLE entry and Robert I am stunned it isn't at least a top 10 finisher with a mid 6 score. If I had not entered this challenge (and therefore voted in it) I would have been compelled to join the three lonely TEN voters. Love it.

The bubbles are caught in the stage just before they break loose from the bottom, so movement is minimal, and minimalized further by the fact that we're looking nearly straight down on them. Since I use only "found light" (it's a matter of principle right now) and since I needed DOF, and since my camera is VERY noisy at anything but ISO 100, I just shot a lot of exposures at 1/4 second, actually underexposing the shot) and chose the one with the least movement.

I too am surprised this didn't do better. IMHO this is a very creative take on the challenge, showing somethign few people bother to look at closely (my glorification of the banal concept). Still, it has no color and it has no in-your-face eye-appeal, so I gues that's askign a bit much.

Thanks to all commenters.

I still love this shot, but am amazed you got this clarity of bubbles on a 1/4 shutter speed. Not sure if you have the function (or the desire), but a slightly faster shutter would have stopped the motion fractionally better. In taking photos of air bubbles in water from the side on, I found that I needed shutter speeds of 1/3200 in order to stop the bubble completely.

I completely agree with Olyuzi. I had you pegged for the top ten on this challenge. Congratulations on a great shot regardless of its final standing.

Wow! What exactly are these? That's a neat neat texture whatever it is The large object in the top tight balances the photo quite well... could lightning have improved to actually cause more an eclipse effect? -8 - JeB
