edit: Like the new entry without reservation!

[original post: The composition and use of the gradient in the background are great. The harshness of the highlight shapes isn't attractive to me, at least in this size. Overall a fine image. Good luck!]

It certainly is a fascinating shot, Jim, my friend! How did you manage that? I wonder what it looks like in color. Well done, as always.

Fond regards,

Endre

I'm with Endre. I think it's a very nice pic and also think it may look better in colour.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

Hi James,

I really like this second shot. The colors and the reflections and the moment you caught are fantastic. Really nice capture.

Best wishes,

Steve S.

Wow!
What a great shot. Wonderful light and color and shapes.
How in the world did you get that bubble on top? Is it a composite?
Please enlighten me.

Thanks everyone for the comments. Trubble was too cropped to leave much resolution, and then I gave it a bit too much in the contrast department. This is a straight capture, and a minor crop. Two softboxes, and a 40 degree grid shooting through a gel + barn doors. This is not a composite. The bubble just happened to separate itself from the heap - I don't know why, but it is why I liked this shot.

Another brilliant Jim Markus shot! It's fun to get to see all your equipment in the reflections.
Bravo, yet again!

Fond regards,

Endre

Really pretty, Jim! Bubbles aren't that easy to shoot well but you did a fabulous job. Love the blue to black.
