Bit experimental but at least I got the kind of abstract effect I was after. There's probably a better picture in there somewhere but it escaped me, be interested to see if anyone else enjoys this one though :)

Cropped and much level faff in lightroom, usual resize, USM and save in editor.

And yes, I know it is very green.

Hello from the Critique Club:

I didnít vote in this challenge andI really havenít looked at many of the other entries, so my critique will be based on what I see here and not in comparison to the other images. I like the concept for this image and the color works for me, as it adds interest to the image. However, as noted in the comments you received, the execution could have been a bit better. The biggest area needing improvement is the clarity of the image. I would think a faster shutter speed would help here considerably (20/20 hindsight on my part). Once the bubble clarity is solved, then the composition might be next. This is one of those subjects where it is hard to pin down what is best compositionally. In all likelihood, a simple vertical crop with the subject centered would probably be the strongest composition. There is no need for negative space on either side but some at the top could be useful. Overall, a good try and I hope to see more of your work in the future.

Please let me know if you have any questions regarding this critique.

Nice idea, although lacking in clarity

Nice sense of action here. I might like this better with a vertical crop and the bubbles fading in to nothing on top (emphasizing the action).

Stunning idea, just which it could have been a bit sharper. Love the colour
