This was a last minute entry. I went to a pond that had a lot of ducks/birds, etc, that I wanted to shoot for the zen challenge. My whole family came along for the trip, and my dad threw a rock into the water. These little bubbles were left over. I thought they were pretty cool looking. :)

I think this image certainly meets the challenge, though it doesn't give me an inner sense of zen. I don't find the image entirely appealing, the water looks somewhat sludgey and though I can find beauty in things typically thought of as unattractive, I think the lack of depth to the image plays against it. The focus is nice, use of natural(?) light is good though I wish there were a bit more shadows around the bubbles to try and add that depth in there. Maybe even getting more on level with the bubbles (if possible) would help add to the dimension. I think the ripples do help add interest to the image and it would be neat to see ripples around all of the bubbles, thus having the concentric circles everywhere with bubbles in the middle. Definitely would add something more for me as a viewer to latch onto. I gave a 4

This is simple, but nice...Zen. Is that from rain or fish?

The strong ripples going off the right side draw my eye out of the picture.

Very pretty. Although there is some movement in this photo that takes away from the attempt at stillness, it's not severe. The lack of color is used brilliantly to keep color from being a visual distraction. Great job from the 'Great Job Baggie'!

The bubles look false and edited in.

I think I would have possibly concentrated on just a few of these bubbles and the ripples they are making in the water

Maybe a little too many bubble for my liking

Wondefully Zen. Almost appears as though the bubbles have an outer glow. Good work, 10.

the good thing about this is that it's hard to tell if it's black and white or colour...I like it, but there's nothing that is a focal point in the shot...looks good as an abstract
