Thanks to everyone for the comments. For those of you wondering about the bubble and how it was accomplished. I used an experimental bubble being created by the government to float troops into combat. (Sounds better than my wife bought them at the dollar store.)

Thrilled with my second blue, now I am tied with 21.gif toddhead and soon will pass him!

I thought that bubble looked familiar- it's that same one from the old show "The Prisoner". It was the government all along.

Well congrats on the very well deserved ribbon - an awesome idea flawlessly executed. ...and with a side of bokeh! :D

Oh yeah... you must also be a really bad bowler. I want my pin tomorrow!

This reviewer initially gave this a nine, but on commenting review, rerated it a ten for several reasons. First, there are few white blooms that are a little distracting and could have been handled better. Having said that, from a concept standpoint along with the vibrant color and very cleverly executed staging, it is a simply brilliant concept even if it's less than perfectly executed. A top ten winner and a potential blue ribbon contender.

Wonderful bubble and tack. I think the background colors might be a bit overpowering but they're gorgeous.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/16/2009 12:12:10 AM
Great idea! The colors are fantastic, smeared like a bubble. The harsh reflections should have been cloned out. 8, favorite so far.

fatal attraction though...
