M&M bubbles. What would this be like with more DOF so everything is in focus. I love the shot.

very original!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

the photo is really cool, the reflecting bubbles very sharp. I must say I am getting a bit tired of this reflection in bubble trick that everyone is doing lately. No offence to your photo I will not mark it down for that 'cause it is still technically very hard to do.

It's been done before, but this one is done beautifully!
