Green food coloring settled at the bottom of heated petroleum jelly. The dish was tilted and the difference in flow and bonding to the dish can be observed.

    The colors of green and yellow look like an abstract rainforest! I can see faces in some of the droplets. Nice work and interesting fluid concept.

    Nice focus and composition. The texture you get from this technique is great.

    The texture is gooey and almost feels like the Goosebumps intro or as if I’m inside a car wash. The image has unique feeling portrayed due to the color scheme.

    Very cool pseudo-grotesque imagery, the aesthetic is great and the flow is captivating

    This is a really cool looking flow. Do you think you’d be able to frame the flow better if you used a different container?

    The Jelly adds some really interesting texture. I like the darker tone, and the colors play to that as well.

    Cool technique using petroleum jelly and food dye. It also has good focus with great contrast.

    This one is my favorite so far. I love the different shades of green and how all textures are unique and they blend in well together even though it’s more of a juxtaposition.

    The way that the light is sort of focused in the middle third of the image, with the top and bottom edges darkened, is really effective – adds a definite mood to this image, and makes it seem more three dimensional.

    I like the way the petroleum jelly is dribbling down in the image. It’s very effective and sort of creepy.

    Art: The complexity of this image is quite interesting. The difference between the die and the petroleum jelly are great, and the depth of the image is striking. Very abstract
    Flow: The flow is very cool, I like the die and how it groups together.
    Technique: Focus is great, but perhaps cropping next time?

    I really like how this image isn’t immediately apparent what this exactly is. It kinda looks like a type of algae. It is a really interesting image.

    It looks like algae in an aquarium, which provides a very natural aesthetic to this picture. I would be interested to see this from a different angle as well, just to see how the height of flow varies.

    The lighting is great, doesn’t give you the feeling of an image, looks like I’m seeing it in front of me right now. Great idea and I like how the flow is moving from top to bottom.

    The aestetic is super unique and interesting. Very swamp monster but interesting and beautiful. Flow is clearly illustrated but the bottom of the image could be a little sharper.

    This reminds me of Goosebumps or something slimy. The colors are vibrant and the flow is oozing off the plate.

    The green color in this picture really pops out and looks really cool. The focus was done perfectly because the texture is so detailed in this photo. Really well done.

    The way the green has many different affects in the petroleum is interesting, such as the specs, the flow, and the parts mixed in.

    Awesome experiment using petroleum jelly and dye. Great focus on the image and the colors of the substance.

  • The colors are really nice, and the flow looks very chaotic. I think there’s a lot of beauty in the disorganization of the flow patterns.

    The earthy colors are very nice in this photo. The texture on the top contrasts with the texture on the bottom and the framing is really nice as well.

    This is super cool. I like the flow and how creepy the green makes it. Using petroleum jelly is a unique idea.
    I would like to see this with other colors mixed in as well in the future just to add to the visuals.

    Beautiful texturing. There is a remarkable amount of depth due to all those textures and your usage of depth of field. You also framed this composition well: leaving out some of the bottom of the image makes it feel as if the fluid is flowing downwards.

    I like the flow and all of the unique shapes that the jelly makes when interacting with the food coloring. It is in great focus and has an other-worldly feel to it.

    Texture really awesome and using petroleum jelly is a great idea. Doesn’t really see a lot of contrast but if that is intentional, such a great flow visualization photo

    Awesome focus in this photo. I’m not sure how much you changed the saturation and brightness of the original, but I think you could create a more pleasant color by brightening up the green if that does not take away from the actual color.

  • Very beautiful picture, good coloring. Very high resolution picture, good texture. Focus is good for this picture.

    The texture of this piece really stands out. It’s amazing to see how “accidental photos” turn out.
    It’s hard to tell what’s going on, but I think that makes the photo more interesting.

  • I like that this image is very monochromatic and looks very much like a painting. You can see the remnants of where some large bubbles were and the flow creates an interesting mossy look

    Art:
    Suuuper cool piece. I like the asthetic, it’s kind of creepy :) Very interesting.
    Flow:
    It sounds like you could refine your description of the process of setting this piece. There’s so much physics phenomena here, it’s hard to tell which you wanted to focus on…
    Photographic Technique:
    Nice, crisp, clear, in fcus. I really like the color composition.

    Almost creepy looking, but very cool. Great photography, you have some vignetting in the edges and that is really cool. cool fluid flow too, nice use of potreleum jelly.

    Really neat image, I like how the dyed petroleum jelly looks almost like a cell (plant cell). The overall technique is great, highlights and contrasts exhibit the smaller processes occurring in the jelly.
