You can see with yours that the more point like the source, the more defined
the bubble. I notice DSC0687, the top bubble has a black speck, and wondering
if it is from the lens and not sensor dust?
I only spent a short time with mine for the first 5 images. With more interest
in suds, I added 5 more to the album:
6,7,8 are bubbles with highlights from plant behind.
9 shows some glow effect
and 10 is my special friend, Sookie at F5.6. She is always bringing me in
lizards, mice, ... to show me. And always alive so she can play with them.
I like bubbles but also like how background in general is rendered, preferring
the more painterly.
