need to have the smooth silky look to the water...possibly a pass (or an additional one) with a noise filter...and your bubble isn't super, super clear and sharp...

IMO this is a bit OOF (with possible exception of the clear bubble). There also seems to be a grainy texture to the orange ripples. Not a bad shot, just missing something - needs a bit of extra pop of some kind.

I'm not voting in this challenge, but if I were I'd give this a 10. It's simple and elegant, and has an appealing tonal range within the orange and yellow spectrum. I like the softness of the ripples...

Serene and beautiful. I love this picture most for its simplicity.

Here's my comments, specifically because you've marked it CW

If I was voting in this challenge I would have given you a 8. It gives me a real feeling of tranquillity. The composition is just right with the bubble off centre. I like it.

Nice soft orange, a simple composition, sharpness and DOF on the right place,... that's all it should be. *9*

Not bad, bubble is a bit too centered for my tastes, glare is a bit distracting. Would like to see it a bit brighter. Nice silky smooth water.
