This is the water vortex generated through draining a 2 liter bottle after spinning the water inside.

    Really nice shading and focus. I love the shadow behind the flow that is sharp. I’ve been thinking about making flow spiral like that.

    Prof. Hertzberg says that Prof. Weidman has more information on a related topic.

  • Great focus in the photo. The water looks really crisp, I like that you took the image at a high shutter speed to capture the sharp edges in the flow of the water.

    The water vortex was captured really well. The black and white contrast makes the image very aesthetically pleasing. Good cropping to make the water vortex the focus of the photo. I like how you included the shadows in the picture.

    Awesome picture. I really like that you left the shadow of the water in the background, but I would crop the top a little bit more so the bottle can’t be seen.

    This is a really nice illustration of a somewhat laminar flow. The gray background adds a very nice touch to the photo

    I like the contrast of the water against the background. The fluid flow is distinguishable and captivating. Could increase exposure a tad.

    Art: Lovely flow, nice choice to make it black and white, and a very nice composition, though the water is a bit far to the left perhaps.
    Flow: Very cool! Spirals of water are fascinating.
    Technique: Excellent focus and motion-capture. Perhaps consider playing with different colors?

    Great framing, simple and elegant image; focus, lighting, and shadows are all very nice. Interesting and clearly visible flow phenomena, addition of vorticity is significant.

    Great job focusing on the flow itself. The depth of field really enhances the composition.

    I really like the composition with the contrasting shadow on the right, and the stream is nicely focused and captured. There are also some interesting effects in the shadow from the vortex.

    The focus in this photo works really well for drawing attention to the jet. The reflection of the lighting on the jet is aesthetically pleasing.

    I think this picture has done a proper job using focus. I love how focused the actual liquid is and how it is blurry shadow. Unique picture.

  • Very beautiful flow, focus, resolution and exposure is good. Flow is understandable.

    I like how you turned the picture black and right. It makes the focus be on the stream, with no distracting other colors/images.

    The flow physics are very visible and the image itself is very clear. There is great detail in the swirl and it is pleasing to look at.

    The vortex is captured really clearly in this photo. I like the black and white of the photo, it takes out any distractions from extra colors. I also like the shadow in the background.

    Good shot and I like the choice of greyscale. I think the bottom of the vortex is slightly out of focus so you may want to consider cropping to just the area that is in focus.

    Nice. I like the black and white asthetic. it’s interesting.
    Flow:
    I like the braiding you captured.
    Photographic Technique:
    The reflections are nice. I like that the background is so out-of-focus, it creates a nice contrast to the in-focus spiral.

    The flow is really cool. I love the use of black and white. The flow is in focus really well and I also really like the shadow.
    I think cropping out the tip of the bottle would be good, so that it is just the water.

    I really like the shadow in the background. The highlights in the water are very clear and make the edges stand out. Simple concept and great image!

    I really enjoy the lighting and the fact that you included the shadow of the flow on the back wall. The flow is a very interesting one and looks cool as the vortex is leaving the bottle. The focus and exposure are both really well done.

    I like the shadow in the background, it add a nice artistic element. Nice job focusing on only the flow. Overall shows cool laminar flow where the surface tension is not broken.
