Hi Lee, welcome to the Critique Zone!

What can I say? Hmmm. It's a fun shot - definitely fits with the challenge in being a macro, lots of colour and interest.

Technically, there isn't a lot to say - you have complete control of the DOF here, and putting it across the shot at the perfect diagonal is really pleasing. It's nice and sharp where it should be, and very blurred where it should be.

Artistically, this is a puzzle macro - how can it be measured artistically?! It's a lot of fun, but lacks a little 'wow'. The border is nicely done and frames it well, but push come to shove I suspect that the voters just decided that it is only a shot of some bubbles - bright, colourful and very well executed but it didn't grab them.

I suspect that if this were an abstract macro challenge, you could have added a full point to the score. This is the kind of shot you could sell to a smart restaurant or coffee bar more successfully than the DPC voter! Ultimately, as long you like it, it's a success.

Happy hunting,

Frank.

An interesting combination of colors. I can't determine what is making your 'lattice' pattern.
