A fountain near my home with a diameter of 10 cm was bubbling about creating nice shapes. 12 shots later this appeared on my camera, enjoy it. The only thing I did is to rotate this picture 90 degrees so you see it on your monitor on one page.

That's really nice. Beautiful shot. Isn't that at least half the secret to good photography? Never take One shot when you can take 12. I'd rather you posted it right way up anyway, but well done.

Colour blind from Tokyo, Japan

Great effect. I was wondering what the hell this was for a second. It's a good idea to put it sideways to make people really have a look at the picture.

Wow! First thing that came to my mind was ... how in the world did you do that? Then I read your description. But I'm still curious about that one bubble (lower left) in the air? :) This is a really nice capture, D!

I like this shot. Too bad you had to rotate it to fit it on screen. I like the quality of the water, it doesn't look like the water does in similar shots.

@Henry: many thanks Henry
