This image shows a stream of blue body wash liquid being poured and suspended in a bowl of water, accumulating at the bottom. As the stream passed through the surface of the water, bubbles formed in the stream, causing parts of it to float upwards, and creating the ‘loop’ seen here. The image was color and contrast enhanced in Photoshop CS2.

    What an interesting loop and coiling in the fluid! I wonder if you can play with bubbles and model the rope coiling in 3D, like a less-permanent 3D printing pen!

  • great colors, the soap looks almost neon. This must be because it was lit very well, I like this a lot! You can see the flow well and the small bubble was a really cool detail that you captured!

    Really cool colors in this picture. The blue really pops and this is a cool demonstration of flow visualization. Good focus and shutter speed to make the image clear. Overall, good and original photo.

    Love the coloring in this. I think the zoom is perfect, and everything going on in the background is cool too.

    This is pretty creative. I like the blue in this picture and how it glows. Maybe a darker background would add a nice touch to it.

    art: Excellent color and composition. It feels sort of alive.
    Flow: so neat! A lovely mix of color and science!
    technique: Maybe decrease the highlight on the left with masking.

    The flow looks almost frozen in this scene due to the colors and the subtle gas flow in the background.

    This image is awesome. The physics of the air bubble lifting some of the stream up is fascinating. The focus and staging of the image is nice as well.

    Beautiful colors and flow observation. I think toning down the white spot (depending on the original) might be a good option.

    Very nice visual. Smooth and majestic flow of fluid. Also the different shades of blue mix together very well.

    The way that the bubble lifts up the body wash is very interesting. I also enjoy the enhancing that you did to the color. Was the rest of the body wash left in the background for the visual effect.

    Excellent job capturing this flow. I really like the vivid colors from this composition.

    Really cool that you identified the phenomenon with the air bubbles, since that would be hard to see with the naked eye. Cool shot. The back edge of the glass seems like it may have some scratches or something, so if that was a clean glass it would look even better.

    The colors, focus, and pheonmena here are really stand out. I love the shape of the stream, and the air bubble. Some cleanup on the background would help, but otherwise this is a really cool flow.

    Really interesting capture. The color is sweet, and the form of the stream is really puzzling. The blue makes it seem frozen. The background is a little dirty and distracting and could be subdued a little.

    Good focus and colors. The body wash almost looks like it is glowing. Some of the light spots at the very top of the picture are a bit distracting, and could possibly be cropped?

    Colors and focus of the image are great, subject could be framed more towards the center of the image; some of the particles in the background of the image are distracting.

    The flow is a cool one and its interesting how the air bubbles lifted up the stream of the body wash is really cool. The picture is well focuses but maybe you could crop the right side to center the coil in the middle of the image.

    Art
    I like it. It demonstrates oddness nicely. It has good composition, the scratches on the glass are a little distracting.
    Flow:
    Nice! You really captured the coiling effect. Not sure what you’re on about concerning bubbles…
    Photographic Technique:
    You nailed it. It’s well resolved in time and space.

    This image is awesome. I really like the concept for the experiment. The colors in this image really pop, but some of the image is distracting- cropping the image slightly might help.

    The flow looks very intense. it almost looks sculpture-like. The fact you got the air bubble in focus as well adds to the physics and I think it looks really cool.

    Interesting how the flow recoils back up. Great use of focusing in and really making a portrait of the fluid while making the background out of focus.

    This flow is really fascinating and I love the blue color. The bubble in the flow is an interesting phenomenon. The fog of the body wash is really neat too.
    I might crop the right side a bit.

    I like the color in this image and I also like the softness in the image. I think more focus on the stream of liquid would be nice (by cropping or something).

  • Very beautiful flow, focus, resolution and exposure is good. Flow is understandable. Slide left side a little bit would be better.

    The physics here are really interesting. Am I seeing imperfections in the glass in the background or is that part of the flow?

    The fluid physics in this image is phenomenal. I especially like how you were able to capture the air bubble and the rope coiling effect. I might crop the image to more focus the loop.

    Great demonstration of flow, sort of unsettling which is great. Colors work well together.
