Location: Mississippi

bubbles caused from the falling water from a fountain breaking the surface of the water below it...lights in the trees cause the reflections.

this title is from the lyrics of a song by Frou Frou called "Let Go". my interpretation of that lyric is that even when life doesn't go smoothly, there is still beauty to be found and lessons to be learned.

the sound of the bubbles popping, feels like a cold and cloudy day.

Haven't seen this before.. very beautiful. There's a real sense of order in the placement of the bubbles and the stripe of colour, but the organic subject is ultimately what's interesting.

Love that song!

Pretty image too.

It meets the challenge well -- reflected light, bubbles lighter than water and a light ripple on the surface -- but the image is busy and I am not finding a definite subject to focus upon.

Wow...nice capture. The water looks so soft even though we're looking at a puddle on the ground. The colors are magnificent. Well done! 9

This plays with the light well. The reflection adds bits of color through out the photo

I don't know what this is ... something fermenting? Something melting? Whatever it is, it's hard to resist. I'm betting it is an unremarkable subject into which you've breathed life with your clever perception of the light on the thing rather than the thing itself. 7

Excellent metallic tones here, very strong composition. Reminds me somewhat of the work of Catherine Jamieson, but she hasn't submitted in nearly a year, so i'd be surprised. Strong photograph.

I like this, the colour of the light really makes it work.

I like this because it suggest different things to me: molten lava, bubbling tar,
oil wells etc. it has a gritty apeal.

Sweet, sweet capture. A little chaotic but very nicely done.
