    This reminds me of the Acrylic Pour technique for paintings. The swirls are very distinct with non-dffusive mixing. It tells a story here, however strange and abstract.

    This image is awesome! I really like the visual aesthetic of the honey being mixed with the food coloring and flowing off the surface. The focus and color of this image are great. Nice work!

  • Very cool photo. I like how there are so many different colors that are somehow not too mixed together! I also like that there is a stationary reservoir with a waterfall, it shows a dynamic and static flow, interesting idea! The quality is great and I think your technique is spot on.

    The color scheme is vibrant and very groovy. I enjoy where the focus is centered on and think the 2 light reflections on the tail are a unique accent to the image.

    Beautiful colors, reflections and focus. I really love how smooth the texture comes off the screen

    Trippy man. Dope visuals, really satisfying to look at. You could mask the background in white to get rid of the logo but overall really good stuff.

  • The color ribbons in this image make a very interesting swirly effect and the rim lighting gives this image a really positive vibe!

    The focus is pretty nice, and the color swirls with the food coloring show how the stream of honey flows down the side.

    I love the interaction of all of the different colors. I would consider cropping the top of the image to eliminate the logo on the box and top left background.

    I like the way that the colors are mixed sort of chaotically on the top and seem to regain order in the flow of the top of the box.

    Very interesting image. The colors really help to highlight the different flows in the honey, and the color contrast also help with this. The focus is good, but it might need more cropping.

    My favorite part about this photo is the patterns. You did an excellent job with the focus of the image. A different background might enhance the composition.

    I can feel the flow of your fluid. I like the pattern of image and a mixture of colors. Nice focus and exposure.

    This reminds me of a Gallery of Fluid Motion entry from last year…

    Really cool how the flow is slowly dripping down the side of the box. I wonder if the box and background would look better with a smoother box and more consistent background, but they don’t distract too much as is.

    The focus, color and lighting here are really nice. I love the look of the flow, like it’s coming through a slit on the left. Cropping out some of the box would be nice but overall I enjoy the aesthetic.

    Wow. This is art made with flow. The color, the sparkle of light, the flow down the container, all of it really works well together. I like that the background is blurry too. Well done.

    Wow it’s really nice. This could be a whole new medium.
    Flow
    It’s cool. You made most of the swirls, right? It’s a little hard to tell what was caused by you and what was caused by turbulent mixing…

    This photo almost looks like a painting.
    The swirling colors make this very intriguing.
    The drip down the side of the pool is fascinating.

    The colors in this picture are really cool and the flow down the side of the box also adds a lot to the picture. The focus and framing is nice.

    Great colors in the image. Maybe crop in closer to the streams of color? I think it would be really cool to zoom in and fill the frame with the pool of honey. Also good focus and lighting in the photo

    This is absolutely beautiful. However maybe some more cropping or a darker background to keep the focus on the honey.

    Maybe crop the image down a bit more?

    The colors in the honey look almost like a painting. I would love to have a canvas of all the colors on the top of the box.
    Great focus and usage of framing to direct the viewer’s attention.

    I really love the feel of the flow with all the swirls and streams of the fluid colors. It kind of reminds me of molten glass, gives it a unique feel.

    The colors are awesome looking, and I like how the flow off the edge of the plastic to the left is visible. I would have maybe cropped the background out a bit more but overall, great image.

    This is looks really cool. The puddle is very aesthetically pleasing. I think a picture straight onto the stream flowing out of the left could look really cool also.

    Great fluid visualization. Good use of colors and cool concept. My only suggestion is to crop it a bit more to take out the top quarter.

    Cropping would make for an even better image of the subject and fluid flow occurring. However, I really love the colors and this image in general, it reminds me of a Jackson Pollock painting.

    Outstanding use of color and viscous fluid, would try to crop it out to focus on the fluid more. Focus is nice.
