    I like! The color is WAY better than the B&W.

    Thanks for all of the responces.
    The picture is just a close up of soapy water. :)
    Now that i have looked at them more I agree that the colour takes it. The depth and layers show much better!

    Easy set up really,
    I got a glass mixing bowl and put soapy water in it ( I was washing it at the time ) Lifted it up off of a white table about 3 inches with some candles ( my girlfriend has hundreds ) and slid my iphone undernieth. The colour comes from putting a picture of a flower up on my phone and used it as light for the colour shot. I do not have any flashes so lol I have to use what i can. Turned the lights off in my closet and viola! I used the google site for the black and white one because it was white, for the most part.
    Shot with my tamron 90mm macro 1:1 as close as i could get focused.
    Weighted my tripod down with a clothing iron, (Carpet sucks)
    Used shutter lock up,
    Remote trigger,

    colour was f/6.7 1/7 second ISO 400
    B&W was same lens,
    f/6.7 1/8 ISO 400
    both shot in Ap prefered mode. I guess the B&W was a tad brighter.
    I was going with smaller apatures to get it all clear but you could see Google in every bubble lol. I played with it using some cool pictures on my phone but simple was good here. It became a little too much. Thats another try all together!

    I always give a thumbs up when someone puts creativeness into the process of taking a picture. I think it sais something about ones interest in photography.

    Oh, on emore thing.... :thumbup:

    I am a fan of B/W... But in this case the color image gets my vote. :)
