    This is a great speed to view all the details in the pop. I particularly liked the wrinkles formed on the edges of the ripped balloon as it travels around the water. The spray off the surface of the water looks like glitter. Its a really nice video.

    The friction between the water and the balloon skin is very cool. The increased effect that the skin has on the liquid as time progresses is really cool

    Art: The contrast between the background and the balloon is great, the orientation of the balloon makes for a rather interesting popping phenomena.
    Flow: The flow is quickly understandable and recognized.
    Photographic technique: The focus and the depth of field used in this piece was good.

    Very cool to see how a seam forms and is pulled open around the water. The fine spray pulled off the surface of the body of the water reveals the high shear there. Good lighting and focus.

    Really cool to see this in slow motion. would be cool to see the water balloon bursting on impact as well.

    The balloon folding up and the water streams trailing really adds to the slow motion of the video. Well focused and well lit. Having the water dyed red added nicely to the contrast between the streams and the bulk of the water.

    The video quality is amazing. I love how the image is very focused and the flow can be clearly seen.

    1. The video is artistically wonderful and I like how the water sparkles.
    2. The fluid physics are well shown.
    3. The technique is great.

    Really awesome video. The water sparkles are so beautiful! Great quality and focus. Music would be a nice added touch.

    Interestingly, the water balloon has very small vibrations at the boundary layers. This would be cool to try with a balloon filled with baby powder.

    Excellent video! A little bit of lead in time on the front of the video would be really nice, only because when I play the video the effect is already happening as soon as it starts. It takes a couple plays from the beginning to understand the context of the effect your illustrating.

    Nice effect captured! good lighting and the effect is clearly spatially and time resolved.

    Awesome capture of this phenomena. We’ve all seen this happen in the blink of an eye but when it’s slowed down to this extent it seems like the laws of physics are changed.

    I enjoy the rupture of the balloon and the shear force is very well shown in this video. Its interesting to see the water molecules “spit” out because of the shear force.

    I like how you’re actually holding the balloon in this video. When the water starts to break apart it sparkles a lot which is really visually appealing.

    Cool to see how the tearing of the balloon skin pulls some of the water with it, but the majority of the water remains undisturbed.

    The hand in the image is distracting. Holding the subject with something else would bring the focus to the balloon. It’s fascinating how long the balloon shape remains in place.

    Wow! Cool video, I like how the water seems to be pouring upward and outward, like parted hair or something. Nice work!

    So Cool!! I love the hand in the video. Great focus. Could use some music

    Art: Really dramatic slow motion explosion
    Flow: Flow is clearly illustrated in slow motion
    Technique: Good lighting

    From the thumbnail, i thought it would be distracting, but the hand holding the water balloon really adds to the efect of the image. While the balloon popped, it reminded me of pacman. Pretty cool stuff.
