    I like how simple the picture looks but how complicated the flow is. It looks like the water is frozen in air. I like that the picture could benefit from a darker background.

    Great work. The good lighting and the focus made a very cool picture.

    Your image does a great job of capturing the phenomenon; I appreciate that I can see the mass of water built up at the top of the image as it travels down the spoon and is cast off the tip. The way the water “stains” the background adds an interesting element to your composition, and I don’t find it distracting. How did you get the water onto the spoon in the first place?

    I think the background is sort of distracting. But the physics are cool here! Maybe use a different background and crop more of the spoon out.

    I really liked how you could see the shading of the liquid. I think if you could center the image around the liquid falling off the spoon it would bring in the viewers eyes to the fluid

    It’s interesting that you were able to capture the shadow from the water flow in the lower section of the photo. The top appears to be blurred. Maybe it could be eliminated to highlight the focus points. Great Photo.

    Good work with the lighting. The falling water is beautiful to look at. you may want to us a different back ground, and/or crop the image done more.

    The contrast of the shadow and the reflection of the water gives an interesting frame to the flow. It allows for the flow to be accentuated against the light background. It might be an interesting analysis to go over curve flow across the spoon and the flow phenomena.

    This is a very interesting flow and shape. I think the lighting could be a bit more in focus and maybe a darker background could add a sharper contrast.

    I like the silver tone of the water and the surface tension driven flow. The angle you shot at creates a very organic looking curve. The lighting differential between the upper and lower half of the image provides nice contrast. I like your choice of shutter speed as it freezes the bottom drops in time. The blur of the spoon, however, seems to take away from the focus of the fluid flow.

    I enjoy the clarity and focus of the water stream that being deflected. It’s a really beautiful phenomenon and the flash really adds to this dynamic. I would possibly crop the photo to focus more on the water flow itself.

    Dramatic capture of the steam. COANDA effect is vividly illustrated in the image.

    The bright flash makes the water look very nice but the shadows are a bit distracting. This picture shows the flow very well especially the transition from the spoon to free fall.

    What fluid is it? Really enjoy the focus on the flow and its stillness. What is the fluid flowing off of? Also really enjoy the way the photo seems to show the water bending.

    I really appreciate the clean crispness of this photo, I think that really helps. It’s cool because this is something that we’ve all probably experienced, but rarely are we able to take such a clear snapshot of what’s happening, and it makes me realize that so much cool stuff happens without me even noticing. I like the lighting, especially the dark shadows. If I had to come up with a complaint, it would be that the background is a little dirty, but that feels extremely nitpicky.

    I love the idea of your image and how it came out, I really like the idea of the shadow in the back drop too. it also would have been cool to see what it would have looked like with a complete black background.

    I think the phone flashed you used was actually quite effective in this case, and the shadows helped to bring out some of the details of the image. The background is possibly a bit light considering the color of the flow, so maybe next time you could experiment with a more contrasting background.

    The shadow looks really interesting given that water is a transparent liquid. I would consider cropping the image more to focus the viewer’s attention towards the stream.

    This is really interesting. The characteristics of the water are really cool. I think the background and the shadow are a little distracting, but the shot of the fluid is great.

    This image has interesting physics being portrayed. The shadows of the falling water draws attention away from the flow but also has it’s own interesting physics involved.

  • You captured the flow really well, and I think the lighting is really well done. I experimented with liquids too with a paper background, and I think if there is a way to keep the paper dry (or use something that doesn’t get wet) that would enhance the image. I like how dynamic the image is, though, and how you get the flow really clearly and also the shadow that comes from it.

    How crazy, it looks like it’s some kind of liquid metal with a really high surface tension. It definitely captures the impact of the flow off of the spoon. Very nice! I think with a little more studio lighting, it could result in something really cool

    I like the way the light off the spoon almost makes the water look gold and I would try to bring that out a little more in post processing. I would however put a little more thought into the background because the stains and different colors occurring are rather distracting.

    Great idea with the angle of fluid. The water/liquid looks super sharp. I like the shadow of the water.

    pretty good clarity for phone flash. Like the detail of the background adds a little bit to the photo. Also enjoy the shadow of the water in the background.

  • The light on the flow looks very good, but the background looks a bit distracting and as if not much was done in post processing. It would be nice if it was cropped a bit more and highlighted the actual flow.

    This image is a great example of surface tension in action. The shadow of the fluid on the basing behind the image is very interesting but might detract from the image. The lighting of the fluid turned out really well, possibly try a darker background to bring out the fluid flow even more.

    I like the use of light in this image. The focus of the stream brings great detail to the flow.

    The way that water bends around a spoon or similar surface was always interesting to me so I like that you decided to try and capture that. I think a faster shutter speed, clearer focus, and a solid background could help the aesthetics of this photo.
