There’s so much going on here, it’s like a texture! I like it. You have a range of things in focus and a range of colors, red and blue, with bright and dark.
High speed impingement of air on a liquid surface is the effect.
The contrast between the varying colors really makes the image pop. Great focus and shutter speed to capture such a crisp picture. Great depiction of fluid flow and very original image.
This image is awesome! I really like the visual aesthetic of the fluid exploding from the pressure of the compressed air. The focus and color of this image are great. Nice work!
Good colors in the photo. The close up has a good effect for the photo, I think having a more intimate and close-up photo highlights the minutia of the flow. Good job!
Art: Beautiful and violent.
technique: Excellent, though I’d suggest a cover for your work-light to bring down the central highlights.
I love this and the coloring! Also the layered focusing worked very well for this flow
I love the motion, very chaotic, and nice depth of field. Very visceral, and great colors.
Sweet image. Awesome stuff going on. Picture is framed well, colors and light gradients are great. I’m immersed in the effect you captured.
The red on the sides and how you caught the clear water down the middle. The focus works great for framing the image.
There is a lot going on in the image, the focus is great for looking at the depth and the food coloring adds a nice touch.
Excellent use of depth of field, I like the subtle coloring and the gradient from darker red at the foreground to blue-white at the back. A very chaotic aesthetic which I enjoy.
I really like this idea. I’m sure the flow is difficult to capture, but it might be worthwhile to keep the glass out of view.
I had no idea what was going on in this photo, but after the explanation this is a great image.
The colors and lighting are perfect.
Overall great image.
This image is very dynamic and colorful. Nice focus and exposure. Great job!
I like the composition of the background.
I like the atomization and ligament break-up. Sprays are cool.
Everything is crisp, in focus, and time-and-space-resolved
The colors work really well. The motion is captured and it makes me feel excited. Great photo.
I like the color choices and how the lights, blues, and reds are very contrasting. I think the left side that is a bit out of focus could be cropped out a bit so more of the image is in focus.
I like the way you cropped the photo. It’s as if we’re looking through a gap to see what’s beyond. There’s several color gradients and the flow patterns at the top seem as if the camera is submerged under the fluid.
This is a very great picture and really beautiful. I’m not sure I understand what’s going on though and the science behind it. The food coloring on the sides adds to the beauty of the picture. Great focus and exposure.
It was difficult to understand the image before your explanation. I liked it more when you explained it! Focus is nice, and lighting is so beautiful! Great work!
The focus on the water makes the image look extremely dynamic, and the lighting further helps highlight the chaotic flow. Its a bit hard to figure out whats going on, though.
Its a very satisfying image, I think the colors and the focus being on the backside is very interesting
This picture is extremely intense due to all the movement happening from the fluid moving upwards. I can feel how explosive the force was on the liquid.
I like the different colors that are used, though they kind of blend together. The depth of field in this is interesting, seeing a lot of depth throughout the image.
Beautiful image, I like the color in the image. And very dynamic, good focus and lightning. Good job.
The colors in this picture looks amazing, and the idea is great. The flow is demonstrated very well here as well
Great colors in this image. The backlight is a little strong, maybe consider putting a sheet or thin paper in front of the light to soften it. The focus is really good in the back but unfocused in the front, I think it would be interesting to see what the photo would look like if the front of the image was in focus.
I actually think the colors work really well, compositionally this is an excellent piece, and the focus is great. Awesome work.
I love that the photo makes you feel
Like you’re in the middle of it all. The lighting in the back really adds to the effect.
This is a very dynamic image. The colors make it feel very intense and aggressive. It has great clarity and detail!
I think this looks really cool. It’s awesome to see the way the water explodes up the sides of the bowl.
I really like how you chose to compose the focus of the image. It portrays a good sense of depth in the illustration.
I really like this image especially from all the reflective colors. Very transient and vibrant effect.
Great still image, great that you got such a quick shot. Great dynamics in the fluid, also like that you used red fluid. Overall very nice, nothing I would change.
This picture is really cool and then dye looks really cool. The flow is cool and then air compressor idea was a really cool one.
I like the chaos captured in this image. The flow is really dramatics and well done. The colors also add to the chaos which is cool.
What might it look like in black and white?
I love how the flow takes up the whole frame. The lighting, composition and focus is great. This is a fantastic image.
Very beautiful picture, interesting idea. Very colorful and good focus. Good framing.
The focus in the image is very unique and interesting. The colors are a bit drab, however, everything is in focus and the fluid flow occurring is captivating.
Very dynamic and colorful, I like the layered focuses
