Orange in Bubbles

Really neat and very creative, Martin! I love the colors and design elements! #1355259

Martin J. Wells February 22, 2011

Thanks a lot! This was my first try.

For a hand-held macro it's turned out pretty good. I'd love to get both the bubbles and the orange in sharp focus so will be experimenting with my setup to see if it's possible. #9254994

Superb image and great idea - makes me want to try it now! #9255407

First I mixed oil in water, but then I tried throwing a little washing up liquid into the mix and stirred it around and hey presto lots of bubbles.

Somehow I got the mix right first time but I have not been successful on later tries. Trial and error I guess. #9255513

Your first try is a remarkable capture. I also recently did my first try with the oil and water, and didn't come close to this one. I hope we see this again, Martin, good luck! BTW, great idea of mixing a bit of washing liquid too, I intend to try it too!
