Rainbow ...

By Sone  
Taken with macro filters by a window, sprite on them making the bubbles and there you have it ! I know this photo needs work, and i am goong to try this one again. Lets say this was my first try for some comments and ideas. I also noticed that the pink pencil is giving off so i am going to use another which will prevent the little dots that we see all over the image. I will for sure try this one again some time.

I really like this - I am wondering if you were to shine a torch or get some light above it would appear less flat. Try on a black background too. Different effects will make colours stand out more.
Well done on being creative. Smile

This is technically much better. I just wonder, why? What are you trying to show? Coloured pencils under water?

Might just brighten a bit, but I fail to get the resoning.

Paulbroad: Hellow?? The colours is great! And i found this idea in a PHOTOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE so yeah its a great idea. If top Photographers can do it so can I.

The rest: Thank you SO much for the good comments, keeps me going and wanting more of macro photography. I will improve this idea.

Technically the best of your uploads here I think,sharp and clean; but my first thought was as Paul has said - Why? What do you want to convey? If lifting ideas from a magazine it's worth thinking about the overall concept. Colours and shapes look great through bubbles, as an abstract, but I'm not sure that it works with anything as precise and immediately recognisable as here.

Can I suggest that you look at Linda Blythe - all of her 'real abstract' work is superb, the link should take you to page 3 of her portfolio where there are some pictures that might inspire you. Have a look at Thin ice, for example.

As has been said, it's an OK(ish) image, let down by one or two things.
If, by 'macro filters,' you mean those things that screw onto the end of your lens, in my experience, their capabilities are very limited, to say the least.
You'd probably get a better result by pulling back a bit and using your normal lens. Increase the ISO, open up the aperture and decrease the exposure time dramatically. At 1.6 secs., I'll assume you were using a tripod?
As you've said yourself, the pink crayon is falling to bits and if you're going to compare it to a rainbow, as your title and your reply above, imply, then you need to use the correct colours and place them in the correct order.

Get rid of the pink one, not only has it made a mess, but there is no pink in the rainbow. Replace it with indigo.
Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.
The blue needs to be a fairly light blue, the indigo is a deeper blue.

The bubbles on the end of the blue pencil make it look like a mouseGrin.
