I came across few photographs in flicker on reflection of color pencils in water bubble.

one of them is

I tried a lot to take similar picture. But everytime the edge of the pencils always got blurred. I am not able to get the edges sharp.

What are the bubbles in the image in flickr? Are they water drops? How can they be so round and sharp?

Also I saw this image in flickr:

Again what are these bubbles?

Thanks

It looks like they are water drops. I did a similar shot with lots of different size drops. To get the really round drops I used RainX to make the water bead up. Since the two sample shots you showed have almost the same size drops the focus should be the same. I used Manual focus to make sure I focused on the image in the water drops and not the drops themselves.


Here is my setup shot.

I'm gonna make a few guesses. First of all, I see some texture of some sort on your glass. Not sure where it is coming from but you're glass needs to be spotless and clear. An ISO of 1600 can't help although I don't think it's really the problem you see here. Next I would experiment with lighting. Not sure where the ideal angle and position are but I can imagine that certain combinations could cause some problems.


I am serious....and don't call me Shirley.

The photographer would have to experiment until they have got the lighting to the proper angle where it doesn't reflect unto the glass
