This magnificent water drop art was produced by Patricia Ramos and photographed by Corrie White. The droplets were done using a medicine dropper filled with colored soap, water, and milk. For the human eye, it would be nearly impossible to witness the beauty of droplets hitting the surface of the water. With perfect timing, the work of art can be frozen in time.

As the droplets hit the water, the clouds interacts with the water in accordance to it’s fluid properties. Each drop is unique and varies vastly depending on the droplet substance. The droplets enter the water at high speeds and creates pockets of air behind it and results in the mushroom cloud effect underwater. If the air pockets are bigger, the water will be forced upwards creating a splash of art above the water line. The vibrant colors produced are the results of astounding color and lighting choices.

    2nd Place – The combination of intricate physics and amazing color make this a top choice for me.

    3rd Place – the complexity of creating this set-up is what really impresses me with this image.

    3rd place. This image is visually striking and makes me think of jellyfish, and if it were one I fell as if it would be incredibly deadly if touched, as if nature were punishing others for trying to capture such beauty.

    FYI this is the timing unit you see in the other photos in that link:

    They actually sell a special drip photography kit but it’s not cheap. You’ll also notice that person used 3 flashes to get the lightning right in those photos.

    Third Place. Nice find Jason. Drip photography has become pretty common so I have to admit I usually don’t get too excited when I see another drip photo but this one adds a cool twist by including the view under the water revealing the Rayleigh–Taylor instability. I also like the color choice for the drip fluid and the use of fluorescent substance. I was pleasantly surprised by this photo.

    First Place. Looking at this image there is so much going on. The top portion looks like mushroom and below it there is a variety of unique shapes and colors. Even after analyzing this photo for a few minutes I have no idea how this could be replicated.

    Second place, reminds me of Vegas, bright vibrant colors and use of multiple droplets in multiple stages along with the lighting choices make for a real work of art.

    2nd place.

    Visually stunning! The droplet reminds me of a spaceship from a sci fi movie.

    3rd Place. Jason, great find! It’s almost as if the dye is some deep water sea creature we have yet to discover. The colors are vibrant and exciting.
