    Here we are once again......Competition time....

    Most of my original ideas were taken early by the others so it was really difficult.

    There have been some really great entries so far and some of them are going to be really hard to beat.

    So, not my best effort but here it is.....

    "It's my soft bubble - See what you can do :) "

    The photo was taken as one.
    I took over 200 shots and only a handful were usable.

    Just like to say a very BIG Thankyou :blush: to you all for all your lovely comments.

    I debated about submitting this entry but i am now glad i did.

    I would also like to say a big thankyou to my daughter for being such a superb model, she tried to catch bubbles for nearly 2 hours on Saturday (just so i could get the perfect shot) :clap:

    It did take ages to get that perfect shot. I couldn't get the bubble to focus as i wanted it to. But as my father alway taught me...'if at first you dont succeed, then try try and try again'. so i did and on my 200th shot i got it :clap:.

    The background was my two tone ugly coloured fence. Had to get rid so i greyed it and blended it into one colour using clone. Bl**dy time consuming but worth it in the end.

    All in all took me two and half hours.
