    Amazing use of color. I love how dynamic the photo is. Maybe add more brightness. There is almost nothing i would change about this image. Wonderful work.

    Great idea to excite the fluid using a woofer. And good job experimenting with the viscosity of the fluid (by adding milk to latex paint) until it did exactly what you wanted it to do. I really like the use of lighting and shadows to make the bubbles look like holes, it dramatizes the reaction of the chaos after the woofer vibrated the fluid for awhile. Good use of a contrast of red dyes on about half of the image, and fluorescent greens and yellows on the other half, not fully mixed in the milk and paint. Nice job!

    Interesting mixing patterns captured in this photo. Its surprising to see both curved and angular lines in the mixing lines. I like that the image goes from dark on the left to light on the right. If I were to change one thing I’d swap out that green for a color that would complement those deep reds and purples.

    This reminds me of the surface of some other planet. The air pockets are really interesting. I love the colors.

    Strong contrasting colors in the image and clean, discrete lines between the lines of color in the fluid. Perhaps cropping the right side a little more would reduce some of the green saturation and preserve the color balance a little bit more. This is an interesting variant on the experiment you guys conducted that diverges from the effect you teammates chose to document.

    The image is very vibrant and the chaotic mixture looks almost natural in a sense.

    Kind of looks like Europe. The green that is. I am very happy with the focus and color spectrum. THe swirls are great too

    Wow love this image! colors look good. Good contrast. Good lighting but the bubbles look odd

    What really gets my attention is the “holes” in the paint/dye because it is hard to tell how those got there without any prior knowledge, i think the “holes” add a cool addition to the image. The pattern is very eye appealing with the mixtures of the paint.

    Interesting display of art! The colors contrast well and clearly displays the flow. I like how there is barely any noticeable mixing of colors.

    Nice photo. Great color mixing captured, the pockets and holes kinda make this look like a moonscape with craters, albeit a super colorful one.

    Cool image. You can see how the different dyes where mixed together by the amplifier. Very interesting to look at. I like the patterns that were formed from mixing the colors.

    I like the way that the colors are mixing in this photo. there is a nice contrast between the green and the red. it looks like the green is winning to me as it has pushed further in to the red side

    This photo is a nice take on the fluid speaker phenomena. It does a great job of showing the semi-diffusive nature of the frequency’s effect on the fluid. Great color choice as well.

    Love the flow of this, absolutely stunning. Love the color choices, they contrast each other very well. Great focus. The air bubbles give a cool effect.

    Awesome use of bright colors. Very chaotic mixing of the different colors. Interesting to see the random bubbles that formed throughout.

    Very colorful! It’s nice to see the contrast between the dynamic mixing surface to this static surface. It almost looks like the surface of a gaseous planet. The contrast between the left and right side of the photo guide the eyes down the band through the center.

    I really like the non diffusive mixture that this photo shows. Again at first glance this looks like a topography map. you did a great job of capturing this photo.

    I really like the chaotic mixture of the paint, it’s difficult to gain a scale of your picture, but it looks very cool. It reminds me of a painting you’d see in a museum. Well done.

    Art: Really awesome chaotic swirling of colors
    Flow: Good job showing the non diffusive mixing
    Technique: Really good focus

    Interesting showing the static fluid flow, showing the aftermath of the fluid excitation. It would be interesting to see a progression of the color patterns as the excitation went on, especially if the initial setup was really clean and crisp. Nice focus, nice coloring, good detail.

    1. Artistically very impressive vibrant colors.
    2. The fluid physics are well shown.
    3. The photographic technique is well done.

    Art: The color contrast between the different colors used is great.
    Flow: The flow is quickly understandable and recognized.
    Photographic technique: The focus on the mixing fluid is great.

    Well saturated colors with nice contrast. The little bubbles add a nice effect to this image. Lighting is well done and helps to bring out the colors.

    Great visualization of random colors mixing. Really vibrant colors and there is so much going on, could look at this image for hours.
