I should have just sabotaged Labuda's setup. Next time he calls me saying "I think I've got a ribbon winner" I'll know what to do.

Maciek - An awesome finish on this image. Considering the fact that it is an ugly vase - you should made the most of it - and that final edit rocks.

This is a brilliant piece of work! I have a few old filters laying around, as well - my hat is off to you for finding a great & justified way to incorporate one!

Hehe this is cool.

A stumper, so meets the challenge. Gorgeous photo. Star filter really livens up the image. Colors are terrific. Has a holiday feel to it.

Bubbles lit with a yellow light and photographed using a starburst filter (the kind with lines across them at 90 degree angles which you can use for soft focus effect too.

you were driving in your car when it was raining and took a pic?? I like it...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Looks like you used a star filter. I think you are looking through some glass with air bubbles in it. The glass looks to have an amber color to that gives it the nice warm glow. Very pretty.

Cool, reminds me of champagne?

Floating oil globules through a crosshatch filter? Beautiful image. 10

Looks like bubbles in some sort of jell.

Great coloring. The sprites are a tad annoying and take away from the photo a little. If they are natural than I guess there isn't much you can do about it.

Neat photo, first thing I thought of when I saw the photo was UFOs. I also like bubbles look and feel 3D.

Mmmmmm more beer. All the bubble photos look like beer to me. This time it is posh beer with sparkly bubbles. Great shot. I am loving the depth, colours and focus of this shot It's in my top ten. How did you get the starburst effect?

All I can think is bubbles in honey or golden syrup thats then been flipped on its side. really like the little light flares on every bubble(?) the whole effect is fab

Ooooooooohhhhhh!!!! This is so cool. I will guess bubbles in water or oil, maybe a bottle of shampoo. Love the star effect.
