A soap bubble is an extremely thin film of soapy water enclosing air that forms a hollow sphere with an iridescent surface. Soap bubbles usually last for only a few seconds before bursting, either on their own or on contact with another object. They are often used for children's enjoyment, but they are also used in artistic performances. (From Wikipedia)

Livin in a bubble and worlds within worlds!! I remember spending my pocket money on a canister of soapy liquid with a plastic ring, dipping it into the liquid and blowing bubbles. This is glorious with total unique prismatic colours and there is something quite hypnotic, ethereal and calming about watching the colours there when the bubble swirls and changes. You've captured the 'essence of bubble' brilliantly and this obviously appeals, i think the first time I see this subject after three years on TE.
What I find interesting is the lens's autofocus managed to actually focus on the floated moving bubble before it bursts! how beautiful it is and great too that the bg looks soft and neutral. This is such a cool shot, it must have taken some patience on your part, and an inspiration too for the rest of us to try something different. I always thought you are a bubbly character Eleu!! and this picture proves it. Stunning and tfs.

An excellent technical achievement and a completely fabulous juxtaposition of the trees in the background and the impressive skyline reflected in the bubble. AWESOME!

C'est un joli spectacle, colorées et super bien capturer, un bon DOF qui met la bulle en valeur, netteté et couleurs merveilleuses, belle idée

A fabulous catch, Eleu, an original idea and well executed on photo.

Excellent use of a shallow dof to isolate and emphasize the fg bubble, also more conspicuous because of its bright rainbow colours compared to the brown and green bg. Good sharpness & timing. The reflection in the bubble of the cityscape is awesome! Tfs!

What a creative scheme, combining reflections with a rare occurrence! I hate to burst your bubble, but that bubble will burst!
Is that the skyline of San Diego that we see on the bubble?
