Greetings from the Critique Club!

Hi Melanie.

Technically this shot has a lot going for it. Light, focus and exposure are great. However, I think the shot is lacking a clear center of interest or any dynamic composition to hold the viewer's eye for long. While you certainally met the challenge description and photographed bubbles, I just don't think this photograph grabbed the voter's attention very well.

the the highlighted area in the middle-left is a little distracting...

I like th abstract feel, maybe a tighter crop would make it more intriguing.

these don't really look like bubbles and this is too gray!

Pleasing composition and definition of bubbles. Strong glare at lower left is a bit much - a little less of it could contribute more to the overall balance.

Like the different sizes of the bubbles, but seems lackluster in subject.
