I found myself looking for a reflection of the camera or photographer in the bubble. I give it 10's. I assume no digital manipulation was done or you would have indicated that. If you had told us the reflections were added with a computer and the background was made black, I would give it a lower rating. Nice work.

Thank you all for the wonderful ratings and comments. I got the idea from a friend of mine and here is what I have done. This is nothing but a double exposure using a digital camera and Photoshop.


The first photo was a soap bubble with the following setting used:


Exposure time 1/100 s

F-number 2.2

Max. aperture value 1.6

Metering mode Spot

Focal length 50 mm Nikon F1.8 Fixed Lens


The second photo of the sunset:


Exposure time 1/2 s

F-number 32

Exposure program Aperture priority

Max. aperture value 4

Metering mode Spot

Focal length 280 mm


I then cropped the sunset and placed it over the soap bubble in Photoshop using layers and a transparency setting of around 50%. That was all and took me five minutes to apply this idea.


Kind regards

At first I was getting 'worried' it was a filter, but I'm really glad to see how you did it. Really creative and effective. Nice work.
