Pencils were stuck through a plastic bag. The bag is made of a polymer material which has flexible strands causing the bag to form a temporary seal along the pencil

What an interesting concept! It was hard to tell what the pencils were doing. I didn’t know they were sticking out of the bag. Maybe try it in a colored bag – or a bag of colored water?
The set up of this photo is very cool, the pencils in the bag are unique and exemplify a cool phenomenon. The focus on the erasers are awesome and bring an unexpected contrast to the subject matter.
Interesting in a simplistic way, the image has a unique aesthetic, but I don’t think it encompasses the phenomenon as well as it could. Maybe take the picture from a different angle
I wonder what the flow would look like if the seal was broken. Could you take a high speed video of the pencil piercing the bag?
I like the focus of this image a lot. The small pops of color from the pencils and the top of the bag are also really nice because of the way that they’re like, balanced on either side of the image.
The image is fun and unique, though the relation to any sort of flow is questionable. I like the idea behind it, I think it could be taken a little further in the flow or boundary direction to really highlight an phenomenon well.
I like how you focused on the restriction of flow. The diffraction through the bag is also pretty cool to look at. It would be cool to see food coloring or something suspended in the water.
The image is fairly dramatic since the pencils seem to be both inside and outside of the bag due to your usage of depth of field.
The color of the pencils really stands out against the white background. It is interesting that the flow does not come out of the bag.
Interesting aesthetics. I like the weird concept. Not much flow but who cares, the water got stuck.
Its well focused on the objects that are restricting the flow. Simple and good positioning of the pencils to exemplify the 3D space.
I liked to see the physics phenomenon with water and the image is well focused.
The focus of this picture works really well so that you can see the refractive properties of the water on the pencil. Did you consider adding something into the water to see what happens when you add the pencils in.
This is cool showing how polymer bags do not leak when punctured by pencils. The white background was a good idea to make the bag and pencils stand out. Did you think about zooming in closer to really see the puncture in the bag.
I like the imagery in this photo, and the color contrast and focus is well controlled.
The color contrast is very nice! The pencils are very bright!
I like the focus and idea. But maybe have more interaction with the fluid itself? maybe by adding food coloring in the bag or something
I like this image because it is interesting and different than other images. The picture overall is very crisp and adds to the overall picture as a whole.
I like this image, the photography is excellent. There is not really a flow being shown but that’s not the purpose of the image. Artistically, I think the piece accomplishes what it was intended.
Very interesting picture. I like you focused on the end of the pencil, the red color highlighted the image.
I like the idea, I think cropping out the top of the bag and rotating it might improve this.
The pencils add a unique touch to the image, overall it is in focus.
This is interesting controlled with good focus. But I wonder if the science behind this relates to the flow more than the plastic?
The focus is great and very fun to look at.
The coloring in the image is very plain, I would recommend adjusting some stuff. The resolution is great. The lack of flow showing the phenomena of the plastic bag is very interesting.
Cool subject and nice colors in the picture. I think you could adjust the view and focus so the corners of the bag are also as clear as the rest of the photo.
I like the aesthetic of the image! Photographic technique is great too.
I like how odd it is. It’s cool that the fluid doesn’t leak.
It’s a cool physics your showing.
It has nice aesthetics. Things are in focus. Nice job.
Nice focus and solid color background, definitely a unique choice of subject, could possible use a bit more contrast.
Great focus and exposure, and the light makes the image visually appealing.
I like the concept of capturing the resistance. The top of the bag is a bit distracting and maybe dyeing the water would help it stand out.
Weird use of pencils, it neat that the water stays in the bag. Good photography, overall well balanced image. I might change the crop though to focus more on the pencils.
Art: Creative, and very interesting to look at and ponder
Flow: no real indication of flow.
Technique: Good focus and exposure
The focus of the image is really well done. I like the idea of using the opposite of flow. The addition of pencils is not something you would usually expect.
Maybe coloring the water to see the fluid a little better might be helpful in the future.
I like how unique your idea was to show the restriction of flow instead of the flow itself. The focus of the photo is good and I like how the only bright color comes from the pencil erasers.
that is so cool!! try to include more flow in you images. However, great idea, nice exposure, and nice focus!
Great picture to clearly illustrate phenomena. It also has good focus with clear physics exhibited.
The colors are really vibrant which makes the picture interesting to look at. The restriction of the flow is something cool and the picture itself is in focus and looks great.
I didn’t actually notice that the pencils were piercing the bag until I looked at the image closely. It’s cool that the flow is being restricted by the pencils, it’s an interesting contrast to the other pictures that show active flows. The technique is good, the image quality is high and the focus looks great.
I like how different this is than the rest of the images. The restriction of flow up close on the pencil would be awesome to see!
I think you could have cropped the image a bit better so the subject and the process of fluid dynamics are seen better, however I like the odd aesthetic quality this image has.
Love the colors and contrast of thr colors. I do not know what the flow visualization is about. Really good focus and very professional
I really like the picture and I think there is a good focus in that picture.
Maybe in the future you could try and dye your water to more clearly see the flow here. I do like the angle of the pencils and the lighting present. Again, only suggestion would be to make your flow more visible.
Very beautiful picture, good coloring. The flow is understandable. Focus is good for this picture. Good idea.
Nice experiment of a flow restriction. Great angle choice for the composition of all the elements.
Neat idea! The restriction of flow is very interesting. Great focus on the erasers.
