    Well some really great entries already. Heres my feable effort. Very difficult for me to get this shot, tried many times but due to reflections from the shop window had to use flash.
    The original image is on my flicker site if you would like to compare the before and after. The entire background has been cloned and painted out. Two extra bubbles were cloned in and some shadows removed. I am far from an expert with editing, using photoimpact 11, dont know if thats good or bad? So heres my entry, the original has been emailed to Steve. I think it follows the "round things" theme.

    Well that's actually pretty good. You've got a lot of round things in a photo which is unusual & interesting so well done.

    Very nicely done mate, I love the small diving figure and the colours of her costume and those on the towel really break the image up :thumbsup:

    Well done. I must admit that when I saw the shot you were planning on the other thread I didn't think it would make much of a shot, but you have done a great job!! :smashin:

    You need to email the original to Zone, I don't have anything to do with the running of the comp these days i'm afraid :)

    Nice Photo and idea, but something doesnt seem quite right them bubbles, they look like plastic spheres, i have never seen soap bubbles that would stack up like that without bursting, or was it a different sort of liquid being used.
    Quite amazing though if they really are soap bubbles:smashin:

    Well spotted that man, its a bathroom showroom display. Have posted the original below, quite a bit of editing done. It also contains the EXIF info for the comp. Still not happy about all the crap on the right of the image, but you cant have everything.

    Im assuming that the bubbles arent actually bubbles? the ones floating look like they are hanging on string, and you can see the lines between them.

    I like the shot, very efective.

    Thats right, would be difficult to get real bubbles that big.

    Have removed the 2nd picture as I don't want people to confuse which is the main entry, I read the exif first though so :thumbsup:

    Nicely done, having to do some touching up in my entry this month I know how difficult and time consuming editing can be and I think you have done a good job with this.
