    Hi people,
    I'm after comments on this pic from y'all. This is a macro shot on F3.2 @ 1/40 Sec. Only a slight tweak of the curve in Photoshop 7. Used 4 x 250watt globes for lighting.....(Very hot when you get amongst the globes).

    Usually I have a strong aversion to specular highlights. In my opinion this photo works due to the fact that they are all over the place. Are they orbs? LOL. Did the hands and lens I see cast them out? I still have a smile of wonderment. Yea!!! Thanks.

    Orbs? No. Ordinary everyday detergent bubbles? Yes :)

    They only lasted about half a second longer than the shot did, so needless to say i had several goes at this. The colours actually come from the light reflecting off of the liquid.

    Mighty sharp. What were the highlights produced from? Looks like a Christmas tree or something. :)

    Colours are just from the light reflecting off of the chemicals in the bubbles
