    The lighting makes the droplets look like they are moving super fast. I like the multiple reflections on the disk. The white spots are a little too bright, I think. Great job!

    Art: The contrast between the background and droplets is great, the colors that are in this piece are great.
    Flow: The flow is quickly understandable and recognized.
    Photographic technique: The focus on the droplets in this piece is good. The dust or scratches are a little distracting from the great colors.

    This imagery is almost like something out of a science-fiction novel or movie. The spheres and their detail, especially in the lower right one, and this is a good thing. It almost looks like an alien world despite it being so small. The artistry in this image was planned out and I appreciate that. Practically every color in the spectrum is used here, and it adds a lot of layers to the image both literally and metaphorically.

    Nice colors in this image and I like the streak of light running diagonally across the frame. The reflections are also interesting. I personally would have removed the dust spots off the surface of the DVD since they aren’t relevant to the fluid physics and are distracting.

    Cool shimmering effects and reflections. The focus draws the attention to the main diffraction stripe between the two droplets nicely. Refraction of light as well as surface tension effects on the droplets are clearly seen. Overall a nice image!

    I love the blue hue in this image. The multiple reflections are extremely interesting.

    I really like the formation of the water droplets and their uniform nature. The way the light illuminates the contact point with the CD is an amazing effect. The big droplet almost looks like a ladybug!

    Beautiful colors coming from the DVD. I like how two of the water droplets are in focus and the other two are not. The middle droplet really grabs my attention.

    This image feels very futuristic to me, especially the rainbow light streak, reminds me of Tron. The crisp droplets and the reflections are very pleasing.

    The particles are the most interesting part of this image! They water droplets are either pulling them to the surface or magnifying surface defects on the DVD. In either scenario it is a very aesthetic effect being illustrated.

    It is interesting that you can see the particles in the water droplets. The rainbow effect is really cool, great range in colors.

    Love the blueish tint on this. Like that there are a few droplets, keeps it simple. The diffraction of light and rainbow colors are gorgeous. Love how in focus in the droplets are.

    Amazing colors displayed here! Still blown away that this is a CD. The focus draws the eye to the bottom right first and then the lines bring the eye across the rest of the photo. Great composition. I also enjoy the infinity mirror effect underneath the drops.

    Light diffraction is nicely captured! The field of view is well done as the flow takes up almost the entire image.

    Your focus is crisp, and the photo is overall very appealing. Cool rainbow and the streak across the picture is awesome

    Really cool idea for creating this image. I like the colors and definitive shape of the droplets. The rainbow of colors really makes this image standout.

    The color is great! the focus is off to the right and it is a bit odd. The light is excellent!

    Well focused image, center droplets are very clear. Possibly consider cropping out the top 2 droplets as I feel like they distract from the overall image. The rainbow effects from the lighting through the droplets is mesmerizing, nice job.
