Sunrise Bubbles--revisited

I was not sure if I should post these at all, but I decided to let you see that the Sunrise Bubble shot that I entered in the Contest Challenge was real. Seems there was some question as to weather it was a computer generated image.

These are a few images that were captured over the period I was trying to get the sunrise in a bubble.

My first day out was pretty cold, and the bubbles were not staying up in the air. This was one of the first shot at trying to get the reflection on the bubble.
Slight crop, and level adjustment



Still freezing , I noticed that small frost spots were forming on the bubbles. These bubbles are approx. 8" This is a shot of the frost on the side of a bubble.
Sligh crop, and level adjustment



Another shot from the last morning. Different camera
Slight crop, and adjustments



A reverse shot, instead of facing the sun, the bubbles were behind me. I tried to capture the reflection off the side of the bubbles



Another image of some bubbles that landed safely on the water.



This is one of my other attempts at the "in the air" challenge. It was my first idea, then I went and tried the bubble exercise instead.

BEAUTIFUL!!!! I absolutely LOVE the one with the frost on it!!! I think after seeing these posts, no one will question that your photo was quite real! I can vouch for the difficulty when it comes to taking pictures of bubbles.

Thank you Jaime. I appreciate your comments.

Im sure that there will always be questions, whether there is proof in the photo or not. I have no other way to prove my photos are real, and not a computer generation, except to post them. I have many more besides these, and just picked a few. People have that right to decide for themselves.
Thanks again.

Take care

Wonderful images, spicoli, as always, don't think I've ever seen an image from your perspective that I haven't liked. I did enter this comp but when it descended into a hassle zone, I didn't comment.I've seen this happen in a lot of photo comps, makes me feel a bit sad and disheartened. I enter to challenge myself and to learn from other's imagination. Your entry was beautiful, as your images always are..doesn't surprise me that it was yours.

Spicolli, I always admire your photos, you do beautiful work but that photo in the contest did look more like a graphic than it did a photo. I'm sorry no mather how i look at it that's the impression i get. Did not mean to insult or mane your integrity in any way, just expressed an opinion, i think we are still allowed to have them!

Thank you terri for your kind words. I always appreciate your comments.

Thank you for your reply Patman. Everybody will see an image differently. I looked at again, and I can see how that image may look fake. That is why I decided to post others to show the different attempts I made. Quite possibly, had I made the focus the bubbles, and not the sunrise, it might have changed the exposure on the bubbles,and not made them so transparent.
Thank you again for your comments.

My original thought was that it was faked too. I went back, however, and reread the rules to find that a faked image was not allowed. I don't know how someone would tell or know unless you can look at layers or something. After that I did go the route of honest people and think that someone wouldn't try to cheat the system. That's all in another thread.

Great shot for sure! I need to get my imagination working.

I agree with the above comment, other than I've never taken pictures of bubbles. After seeing your wonderful shots, however, I may just have to make a stab at it.

Sales of bubble machines rocket - now where do I find them in the stock exchange????!!!

Still great shots and I am overawed by the frosted ones - never occurred to me that this would happen.

I'm just bitter that this shot was soooooooooo good!

Good work as always.
