Challenge: Hidden Gem -- 1,000th Challenge! (Advanced Editing VII*)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Nikon D70
Lens: Tamron SP AF 90mm f/2.8 Di for Nikon
Location: My kitchen
Date: May 17, 2008
Aperture: f16
ISO: 100

This is a test shot I did last May when I got my D60. I don’t have the D60 anymore (sold it on when I bought my D700) but I’ve put it back on my list for this challenge.
I was using pale blue transparent sheets as filters.
I nearly called this shot Biosphere but was afraid that I was the only one who’d see the tiny world. I’m so glad most of you did too.
I’ve really enjoyed this challenge. Thanks for the fantastic amount of comments and the super score.

I do love the landscape scene in the bubble but I really love those colors! The ones you use in your photos are always pleasing and at the same time, dynamic. Congrats on a great score!

Back to comment: A mountain range inside a glass globe. An island emerging from the sea. Whatever it is, it is worth bumping to a 10.

You seem to have encapsulated a perfect, beautiful and fragile world into that bubble.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 11:29:33 PM
Voted earlier coming back now to leave comments. Some really great detail in this shot of the bubble on a watery surface. Love the cool blue and violet hues in this capture. The sharpness of detail on the bubble is wonderful and you have a reflection of the color variations of the blues in the backdrop that is mirrored in the bubble such that it looks like a blue mountain.

03/12/2009 10:33:55 PM
That looks like an island floating in a bubble. Well done.
