  • I think its cool that you can’t even see the Alka-Seltzer tablet, so it looks like the dye is moving on its own.

    Your light set up and background set up in this photo are really good. They help make an great photo out of a simple flow.

  • This image depicts some very interesting fluid motion. Very well done.

  • I love your framing and choice of color. The fishbowl looks like it’s just very slightly off-axis; if you rotate the image 1-2 degrees the top rim would be symmetric with respect to the top edge of the image. The glare at the bottom is a bit distracting, but I think the lightning overall is really good. The appearance of a blue outline around the fishbowl contrasts nicely with the red-orange hues.

  • I like the contrast in this photo and how the left side is desolate, while the right side is chaotic

    I love the aesthetics of the bowl, it really showcases the reaction well.

  • I think that it is interesting that when you used the materials they were expectations that you didn’t control. Awesome photo!

  • The channel on the right reminds me of interwoven layers of muscle, and blood flow. I like how the drop in the back is not in focus. Adds a sense of depth in the image.

  • I like how different lighting and color of water creates such a different image than what I got with the blue water. I like the use of the spherical bowl so you can clearly see the fluid rising on the right side and bubbles falling on the left.

    The suspended drops remind me of raspberries falling from the top

    I like how the red column was on the right side and not focussed in the center.

    Great image, I like the choice to include the whole bowl in the image, gives a nice “containment of chaos” effect to the image.

  • Even though this was using alka-selzer in the water to make bubbles, the movements still look very tranquil in the photo. The colors in the composition look great as well, especially how the gradient lightens as it goes father back in to the glass.

    I love your choice of a fishbowl as your vessel. The red food coloring really created a great feel for the image. I wonder what it would have looked like if you had several different colors?

  • What caused the stream on the right side of the bowl to look thicker compared to the other fluid in the bowl?

    I like the focused of the picture. You captured the fluid very crisp while leaving the bowl unfocused. It gives it a good effect

  • I like how you did your lighting and focus, it makes the image look like it’s a different size than it is. Very cool

  • I love how this looks like a volcano in a bowl. Also, the background looks really smooth.

  • I enjoy the use of an alka-seltzer tablet to create instabilities in the fluid. The thick stream on the far right is described in great detail.

    I really like how you made it looks like a container of blood. I there the focus in the middle need some work, but overall I think this is one of the best submission. Great job.

  • I like how the focus on some bubbles and not others shows the depth of the picture. It adds another dimension to the photo.

    I like the lighting that you used here, it does a good job of putting emphasis on the flow and highlighting the color gradient.

    I think the colors and the movement in the composition of the image is very calming.

  • I liked the selection of the bowl and great background.

  • I love the use of the fishbowl so much. Its framed so beautifully and really gets across the movement of the liquid. I also love the blue tint of the fishbowl, it creates a great constast against the red.

  • I like the blob on the right and the contrasting colors are great. I wish you could have removed the glare.
