Daily Deviation

Given 2012-01-24
This capture is a fine example that beauty surrounds us everyday, not necessarily within plain eyesight. A beautiful macro.
Extraterrestrial by *colorful-child ( Featured by Kaz-D )
I like the soft color tones
I like the sharpness of the bubble and tops of the plants.
The lighting is perfect too.
It is just amazing to be able to focus on something so tiny. It is a stunning macro. Moss never looked so beautiful :heart:
I think it is so beautiful the way the plants seem to try to hold on to the bubble together. It is such a nice composition.
I think it is very original as in that I don't come across a lot of photo's where the main subject is moss
It just appealed to me immediately and gave me this warm huggy love feeling :D

I'm amazed by this whole photo. I'm wondering if it's even a real picture or if its alive^^. The vision for this is amazing, you're patience to take this is so awesome, the originality is unbelievable, the technique is extremely beautiful and the impact is so KA-BLAM!!!. I wish knew what this was cause it looks so amazing. you truly are one of the great masters of photography and I wish I could say more really about this cause its so awesome. I rarely critique photography but this feels like I'm looking at a picture from Avatar. I hope to see more.

It also makes me think of two people dancing. The man is wearing a top hat, and the woman is wearing a big poofy skirt. Their legs are the stems coming down from the bottom as they move together.
