Thanks to the people that got this one. Yes it would of been nicer if I was able to get the drop of water larger in the shot, my Macro isnt all that great on my camera. This was actually a shot with the zoom and standing farther away from the subject.

For those of you who didnt get it, thanks for voting (even if they were not high). I am pleased to see that that many people looked at my shot. The concept of the shot was to capture the upside down road in the drop of water on a train. Its a bit harder to do than you would think using zoom vs macro. Macro on my Fuji 2800 is somewhat poor, unfortuantely I found out about a Macro trick after this shot was submitted. I will redo the shot for my own sake at another time.

sorry, no idea what this is.

Very bland subject, the dirty surface isn't appealing.

I get the feeling that you tried to show an upside down road (?) in a water drop. Pehaps getting closer, if possible, might have helped.

I'm assuming it's upside down, although I can't be certain -- in fact, I'd have to say that it looks like a water drop on whatever the surface is moving down, and not up. I'm very intrigued by what you can see inside the bubble/droplet -- I don't know if it's possible or not (if your camera has a decent macro), but if you could get closer, I think that would be really cool.

Very cool concept. Did you try any closer to the bubble? (fill the frame 20% to 40% more?) I do like the "framing", just less of it.

how is this an anti gravity bubble? seems like it's doing the right thing here...

This is a cool photograph and you have done a nice job of getting clear focus on the 'bubble' here. If the bubble itself or the reflection in the bubble are upside down, I'm having a difficult time determining that from the photo.

Creative idea and work.

hard to figure out what that is.
