Wow.. SUPERB. Love the tones and the bubbles. You have exquisitely and successfully captured an everyday common subject. I know, this is not easy to do. Hope we see this one again. Good Luck and thanks for sharing.

Wow! I never saw this one before, but I'll have to check back in your gallery and have a look at the original! This is so simple, yet so beautiful! (I know, not very original! ... but so true!) Love the lighting, colour and tones ... and the bubbles look so neat and clear! Fantastic work, Mike! :)
