The black smutz (a fly maybe) is a bit distracting, but I like it anyways out of the hundreds of bubble shots i took.

nice photo, however I find the bird in the upper right corner distracting :)

Excellent location for the bubble challenge.

Nice job... although the sun takes my eyes away from the bubble... I like the photo as it gives me the far-off day-dreamy feeling... KWIM?

A perfect capture of a bubble that appears to be gently resting between two blades of grass. Technically this shot is very good but it suffers on the composition end with retaining a viewer's visual interest. I know Mother Nature is a beast to work with but you have one element present in this shot that would have made this go from good to wonderful. In the distance we see the setting sun. If that sun was caught to appear as if it was resting on the tip of the blade of grass that is in front of it in this capture then that would have complemented the soap bubble resting on the blades of grass in the forefront of the picture; the elements of the background would have mirrored the elements of the foreground.

Very peaceful and calming. I like it. Good luck in the challenge.

I like your bubble.

Wow. This is awesome. I think I like the blade of grass intersecting the sun. The colors and tonality are great. The only (minor) detriment IMO is the black spot in the background above bubble.

This is brilliant. The bubble looks like it's made of glass. Great use of light. I bet you wish you could have cloned out that spot just above the bubble! - But that's a minor flaw here.

Love this one with the two spheres, the sun's light contrasting with th bubble. I also really like the composition of this shot. The way the two line up. My eyes are drawn to both at once immediately. Well done! I do wish tehre wasn't that artifact above and to the right of the bubble.

Very cool idea. Wish it were advanced and you could have cloned out that spot in the sky. Nice work!

This is a pretty good shot and cool background
