My humble camera does not like photographing fast moving objects and neither do I, so I went for a more relaxed approched; bubbles. Even this proved quite difficult, as it was quite a breezy afternoon, so I moved indoors and fired bubbles one at a time out into the garden thru the doorway. I like the composition of this shot more than the subject/challenge itself.
Added sepia & crop only from original.

I can see the point with the play on different textures, but, for me, the curtain is too dull to make for an interesting overall effect. Sorry.

Neat. Love the sepia, crop, and the stop of the bubble in front of the potted plant.

The bubble idea is great, not exactly stop-action though (unless you happened to get it exactly when it popped.) About 75-80 % of your image is nothingness - the drapery. Add the very bright area behind the bubble as a distracting element and I'm afraid you end up with a low scoring entry.

The bubble part of the photo is great. The background is not. Unfortunately the background distracts and detracts from your main subject rather than acting to draw attention to it.

Nice. I would show a little more of the bubble (about 1/4 inch more on both sides) and remove the same amount from the curtain.

ok, what is it then? :)

such an unusual composition - extra points for giving me an interesting angle to study - thanks

I think that's a bubble. I am not sure if the curtain was supposed to be there, but I find it overpowers the image and distracts from the bubble.
