We actually had a BLAST with bubbles a few days BEFORE this challenge was announced, at the Fall Creek Falls GTG, believe it or not! I wanted to enter a shot from that day REALLY bad, but have simply used it on the front page of my website instead...

This one had our girls laughing & giggling, and they named this shot the moment they saw it - so Little Man it is... I\'m pretty much beyond being terribly concerned with a score - got to spend time having fun with my girls, and that is reward enough!

Wow, look at all that color. Oh, and the little man is awesome. What a coinkadink!

Greetings from the critique club. First off let me say there are a few things I love about this photo, first being the composition of the girl and the bubbles. The bubbles becoming the "little man" is an amazing thing and great job of capturing it. I wish the focal point had been a bit deeper in the shot I'm suprised that at f8 more isnt well focused in this. I can see the upper bubbles with pretty good focus but it drops off quickly beyond that. The girl is a bit hot on exposure but not so bad that its blown out, just a tad over exposed. Overall given what you captured and recreating it to change "anything" would be nearly impossible and under basic editing I'd say you got all you could out of this shot. Good luck in future challenges.

Disappointed to see this didn't place higher - it should have. Excellent set-up.

You're darn tootin' about fun with your daughters. I'm building my own set of memories along that line. :) I liked this shot, and the little man is just a bonus for you!

very cool how the bubbles came out like that! I would say a little color on the face, darkening, but thats for advanced editing.. nice photo

Whoa. I love the different colors reflected in the bubbles, which has a great contrast with the black background.

This picture has some nice special parts to it; mainly the non-standard position of the girl's head, the color change in the bubbles and the reflection (is that what it is?) in the center of the bubbles. Also the bubble stick being yellow is a nice addition.
The only thing I really dislike in this picture is the necklace being slightly out of focus. -7-

This is just such an amazing capture and great framing. I give this a ten for it's luck and originality (I say "luck" because I'm assuming your "man" was a happy accident). If I had to find something to improve, I would say next time avoid the necklace and fingernail polish, to minimize any potential distractions from the main subject.

This is very creative, I wonder how you did it! I like very much the image, but I am a little bit distracted by the harsh lighting of her face. Anyway a 7

Very fine definition, colour, lighting, composition, and little man happening.

Pretty cool! I like the balance the girl's coloring and necklaces provide with the shimmering bubble-man.

This is very fun. How many shot did you take to get this one? It is very unique.

great bubble pattern and cool colors. I like the reflections in the bubbles too. not that crazy about the viewpoint of the girl blowing the bubbles though - seems like a strange angle looking up alongside her jawline.

Wow, I see him! Nice capture. I like the colors in the bubbles. For my preferences, I would like to see the bubbles just 'slightly' sharper, but a good capture!

nice effect, but I think the face is too blown out comapred to the rest of the picture.
