This picture represents a close view of a glass while it is washed with water and soap. There are lot of abstract textures created by the water and the little bubbles.

I adjusted the contrasts and croped the image in photoshop.

Hi, from The Critique Club,

The Bubbles Challenge leaves an opportunity for abstract submissions, and your photo fits well into this category.

Composition is great, at first it appears to be a centre focussed shot until the eye is drawn around the picture by the randomness of the bubbles, hence your very apt title.

Technically, there is not much to pick fault with apart from the vertical lines/hairs? in the top left group of bubbles. However, there is little you could have done to alliviate this problem, you have to go with what you have at the time.

Overall impressions: At first it is too easy to bypass this photo, but then it catches the eye. The bubbles appear as diamonds in clusters and what at first seems to be a B&W picture, takes on a different image. Also, are these really bubbles or, first look, earrings? I like this a lot a feel that it should have got a slighhtly higher score, but I think that as earlier stated, the first impression brought fast votes and not many took the time to consider your shot. Well Done for a splendid shot and I look forward to seeing more challenge entries from you.

A truly fine image. I have no idea why I like this but I do. The subtle colours work very well and the negative space is a refreshing change. I find this a compelling image and am unable to offer an explanation as to why (that is what makes it compelling I guess:-)

A little too random I think. The bubbles look a bit flat too.
