    I love the contrast between the blue coloring and white background. The picture really makes me want to go get a milkshake. The flow is beautifully captured although the focus seems to be a little farther away than it needs to be.

    The blue foam with the white background contrasts nicely. The flow can be easily seen and the whole set up is visually appealing.

    The blue and white contrast very well together. Very clever to color the milk, gives it a pleasing effect and makes the bubbles show better. Focusing the image towards the front of the glass rather than the back could have made a more crisp image.

    The blue on white is really nice. The bottom right of the image looks like it was cut and pasted onto a background, which is a little distracting for me. I like the choice of glass used.

    This photo has a really nice artistic effect, good color choice. The flow looks really good, nice clean background. Solid work.

    Interesting idea and nice use of color. The patterns of the overlapping bubbles draws my attention. It would be an interesting experiment to just focus on photographing the packing patterns of the semi-transparent bubbles. I think the photo may be a little over processed in trying to remove the background. The fact that the cup seems to float without any grounding on a surface doesn’t feel quite right to me.

    This image is incredibly clean with the perfectly white background! It reminds me of something you’d see in a commercial for a blue milk shake. Great job capturing the image and manipulating it to the point where it is so clean and crisp now, even matching the white reflection of the light on the bubbles with the background. Overall, this is a great image!

    I appreciate the sharp contrast between the blue and white of this photo. I like how you waited for the suds to fall out of the tall glass, Really adds to the composition of the photo.

    Seriously cool. Looks like an advertisement. Background is so clean. I like the bubbles. And the blue is so vibrant. The focus is really good. The bubbles get a little washed out in the top right of the photo.

    The blue coloring was an interesting choice, it reminds me of a frothy milkshake but the color makes it seem a little alien. The clean, white, opaque background really contributes to how the image draws the eye to the flow of the bubbles. The whites may be a little too saturated in the upper right hand portion of the photo.

    Really aesthetic picture. The glass you chose to do this in was the perfect choice. I think the bulbous shape of the bubbles and how it fell and formed just looks really nice together. The contrast of the bright blue with the bright background really keeps your eye on the subject. Really good picture!

    1. The image is very aesthetically pleasing.
    2. The flow is well controlled.
    3. The photographic technique is fantastic and the image is sharp; the colors are brilliant; and there are no distractions from the glass surface.

    – Great contrast between the two colors.
    – I like the added color of the bubbles being a lighter color as a result of the mixture.
    – The video was pleasing too.

    Nice background, the white really contrasts with the blue. The glass makes me thinks of milkshakes and makes the image that much better. Also the focus is quite crisp, well done.

    I like the use of only one color dye. Interesting to see the smoke trapped in the bubbles. Good focus. I like how the bubbles only fell to one side.

    Pretty aggressive post processing makes this photo very nice. The white background is extremely satisfying especially when contrasted with the deep blue of the photo. The bubbles are a tiny bit out of focus in places, but the way the bubbles stay together makes it a very interesting photo.

    Art: Great work on how clean the background is.
    Flow: Love how the shape of the bubbles are only on the left side.
    Photography: Maybe a glass without the grooves would have make it look a little more clean. Great work!

    Really like the white background of the photo to make the color pop. Looks like it is some sort of exotic milkshake. Cool to see the dye captured in the bubbles.

    The contrast in this image helps to show the characteristics of the flow in a very artistic way. I love the use of the glass for the experiment.

    I like the framing to crop tight on two sides and offset more on the top and left. The color is great against the white background, and the lighting works the way if reflects equally off each bubble but the type of source is not recognizable. One critique is the base and close bubbles are slightly out of focus, the so the focus could have been moved slightly closer to the camera. The bubbles that poured off the back are the most in focus.
