[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As I was working in the studio, my dog saunters in with his ball looking for someone to play with him. The ball was a yellow translucent with floating sparkles and I thought it would be interesting if I shot a speedlite through it. So...........................

As always, ALL opinions are welcomed.

The dog wasn't happy.

Hi Terry

As always, and I think it's just me, I'm looking for a focal point. Technically, this is very well done. I think it would make a good background, but as I said, it needs a focal point. It must be just me because I say that about many photographs.
2 for the technical aspect.

A beautiful sunshine looking indeed the world of bubbles
and also bright BY 2 DIMENSIONED-LOOKING lights well done TERRY WAGGONER

Bom dia Terry,
We can see the pleasure of seeing and conceiving a picture so special and so little likened to what was the model.
Gives to joy to see.


Excellent idea, I really like the result.
I immediately think of something effervescent like a lemon drink, I like these colors.
Great details and precision. It is aesthetic and well done.
But most important to me is how you've got the idea to do this.
A situation, a detail, a feeling etc. And the idea comes, then the work ...

Hi Terry,

I was trying to guess what on earth these bubbles are, and tried to not read your note before guessing, but I lost. I thought at first I'm looking at some exotic water plant ;-)

That speedlite is actually a really good idea, I must get myself one of those.

Very nice play here, good focus. Poor doggie, but look what results his toy produced! :)



Excellent idea Terry...
nice and good colors too.

The composition,
The Framing,
The Creativity,
The Sharpness
are so fantastic Terry. I haven't seen a photo like this for a long time. Very Well Done.

This looks like a botanical shot and is very attractive. You found an effective way of dealing with your boredom :-)

Hi Terry, Beautifully captured all these bubbles with nice light and tones. Fresh and cool feeling............Best regards

Made me think of "the Matrix".
You are surprised.
Don't know what it is.
Just swallow the atmosphere.
