Hi all, thanks for voting and commenting.
The triple bubble was a fluke and just happened, I did not try to put them together. I had to put the ISO at 800 to get the light to focus hence the noise, particularly since I also had to crop the image. As to the the rule of thirds it is our own interpretation and all of us have a slightly different point of view and liking and I agree, it is not perfectly 1/3 in all directions. I would have rotated the image but the the reflection in the bubble would have been skewed and looked unatural. The bubbles and the colors are the interest and focal point in this photo. I'm still learning and looking to develop some kind of knowledge and wisdom to get those catchy images.
Thanks for looking!

Bubble person, please help me...is it rule of thirds or rule of third. See, the challenge was in plural...the frame divided by horizontal 3 times and vertical 3 times. The main subject should be centered on one of the upper or lower corner intersections...that's my thoughts.

I'm not finding an interesting point to hold my interest.

How did you get them to not pop?

Nice color in the bubbles and interesting refraction/reflections. The overall noise/grain is a bit distracting.
