This is my husband. We lit a match and had him blow bubbles at the same time. I wanted it to look like he was smoking bubbles. Only two frames came out the way I wanted them too, out of about 30.

I always think I'm smelling smoke whenever I look at this.
It's a very nice image.
Congrats on your high finish.
Fantastic idea.

Interesting, very interesting. One of those photos that make you take a double take.

ah, very clever. love the B&W

I really love this B/W photo. The models eyes has a sparkle. That was the first thing I noticed which then directed my eyes to the buble. I am not a smoker but I think this is a creative idea. Love the dark contrast and crisp focus. Composition is very good also. One of my top picks. Hope it does well.

cool. nick look in the face. (10)

Great lighting. If I didn't know that was a bubble I'd have a hard time making visual sense of what exactly that circle around his nose/mouth is...in fact even know it still doesn't visually seem clear to me that it's a bubble - comes out too flat or something. I think the idea is very interesting.

That real fun, I like this - top score from me
04/26/2007 09:27:29 AM
