Liquid stream #2

Today's is not as creative as yesterdays and I wish I posted this one first. Also I'm not a big fan of the shot either but then again I love the colour balance on the bubble as it streams from the source, whatever it is called.

Yesterday there were issues with the focus according some opinions, well I really wasn't focusing on the lady in the shot as such but in this one she's very much part of the shot.

One last shot tomorrow from this scene.

The colours on the bubble are lovely, vibrant. I like the fact that everything in both shots, aside from the woman in this, is blurred. It really focuses attention on the bubble (and its colours) and allows it to stand out (particularly effective in yesterdays shot).

colour in the bubble is beautiful....but even though you have blurred them there are many distractions....8/10...

btw, jide if you have time you think there's a chance of setting up a verification system so that we stop getting these junk comments...

i think i like this bubble better. close to the wand in the bbubble it looks like there is a portrait photo of the bubbleblower. probably just my eyes but cool.

Like how the bubbles curve around the guy's head.

This one is more alive, probably due to the contrast that the bubble strikes with the general surroundings and maybe because there are some more people in the photo. The bubble thing - must be a Jedi's sword.

Of the two I like this one best the curves of the bubble lead through the frame to woman and her bubble wand. Wonderful capture.

Jide I don't know why you don't like the shot I think it's great. She has to be part of the shot as she's the real source of the bubbles.

I've enjoyed both these images. Mal
I like this one better than yesterday. reminds me of the scene in donnie darko.
I definately prefer this one. The girl looks part of the action compared to yesterdays....you the man!

I think you're hard with this shot, I like it very much because unusual and really well done - I prefer this one than yesterday but it's -of course- subjective smile

Fantastic colours throughout the bubble, the soft focusing in the remainder of the image works well.
