Award Shortlist   

Sunshine and Rain ......

By NickBrandon
Here's an image shot for a friend's kitchen wall, it's one of a series.

Tripod mounted camera and wireless remote release. Used f14, ISO 200, 1/80 sec.

I used a square glass vase filled with lemonade, and positioned this in front of a window.
Diffused the light with greaseproof paper.

Cut a thin slice from an orange and held it in the lemonade, then waited for the correct shape bubbles, then CLICK.

Sharpened in photoshop and border added.

Thanks for looking,

best wishes, Nick
