My husband thought I was going outside to wash his new Silverado. Ha. Well, I did, but only the lovely red tail light.

Fantastic colour and the reflections in the bubbles work really well.
Take care

What a cool idea. I agree with Endre. Something you would overlook but you made this turn out to be fantastic. Now I am going to look at my cars tail light to see whats in there. Nicely done and strong color.

Nice Macro shot Bev, I think I tried a shot like this for (Backup) awhile ago on the WA hope you have better luck.

ENDRE, MARK, STEVE: Thanks for the nice feedback! Detail is everywhere! I visualized this and went out to see if it looked like I thought.

NORM: I missed the 'backup' theme. I'm sure your shot was fine; one never knows what Fred will pick or others will like. Thanks!!

Here's another image of the tail light; I like it, too, and was torn between the two.

Although I like the wash detail more in the second one, I think the detail of the red is more powerful overall. So I think you got the right one. Both are lovely

Bev:

As always, well conceived and executed. Really catches the eye. BTW, I like your entry better than the alternate; IMO it is a "cleaner" image (And I'm not talking about the theme).

Cheers,
Rich

The contrast of the white foam in the second one makes a strong statement, but I prefer all the reflective qualities of the first better. Nice job. Good luck this week!

Wow.
Great shots. The first is great with the color, bubbles and the reflections in the larger bubbles.

Thanks for the feedback everyone!!!

It's always so amazing to me how we can photograph something so ordinary and find such beauty in it. Glad you like.

I like the second one better only because of the detail and sharpness either one is well done.

Hi Bev,

Terrific shot. I love the first one for the big bubbles. I think this exemplifies the theme very well and is a fantastic shot. Good luck this week.
