Great image – the focus and lighting were really well done. The soft yellow color in the background emphasizes the texture of the water flow. Nicely done!
This is shot well. The shutter speed was high and make the flow look very still, almost like glass. I like how the background is not distracting and the water is lit well!
I really like how the water looks sort of like glass and is so clear and translucent. Overall, great focus and exposure.
The simple lighting is jaw-droppingly beautiful! I can see bright yellow contrasting with dark blue and bright gloss. The shadows are really cool as well. Some of the definition of the shadow gets lost in the grain. Maybe try reducing grain in post-process or take another with lower ISO?
The picture overall is really well done. The framing and focus is spot on to get the most out of the photo. You can really see the flow well.
Love the lighting affects that the flow cause. Great image in general.
The criss-cross of the capillary waves forming those diamonds is really interesting! Great job lighting the scene, your choice of using a yellow “backlight” was good and the gradient of lighting really brings out a sense of motion in this composition.
Really nice braiding and capillary wave superposition.
I really like the simplicity of this image. The flow is great and the background in nice and soft. The focus is really well done.
I like the shadow gradient across the imsge, and the way it reflects in the stream. Those interference patterns are really cool, too. Nice job.
Great image, focus is very good and the backlighting really adds to the image. The capillary waves are very easily visible and very aesthetically pleasing. The subtle yellow coloring is great.
The lighting in this photo is great, I think it really highlights the diamond pattern at the pouring spout. It is a really interesting image! The focus is wonderful.
I really like the backing + lighting in this, and I enjoy seeing the wave pattern at the top. I feel like it starts laminar at the top and then becomes turbulent as the wave pours. Great image!
Really beautiful image, love the focus and sharpness of the image, the flow is very clear. Great work.
Really cool image. I love the waves that form in the water, and the crosshatch pattern that was created. The focus is well done, and I love how the background color reflects off the water.
This is a nice clean image. The waves within the flow are clear and visible and look very appealing. The image is in great focus and the physics of the flow is visible as well.
Cool effect with the waves and the focus is awesome. I think the lighting is also pretty good as is.
Really interesting to see how such an everyday fluid flow phenomenon creates a very cool effect if studied closely. Lighting and focus is great. Excellent work.
Perfect composition. I wonder if the geometry of the glass causes the crossing pattern in the fluid.
The yellow to black background makes the picture look really well. Great focus and really cool experiment. It is cool to see the diamond patterns of the wave interference. Overall, great picture and well done!
Great lighting and focus. I like how the focus is directed towards the diamond effect towards the top of the image.
I really like the waves that come off the pitcher as the water is poured. The focus and color in this image are great. Nice work!
Great focus – excellent showcase of flow. I like the gradient in the background created by the light.
Very interesting photo made with very simple materials. I like it
Great patter up at the top, the surface tension pulling the water into a tighter stream is really cool. Great color and lighting. Overall great image, nothing I would change.
I love the diffused light in the background and the yellow and purple also adds a nice element of color. Great focus on the pouring water, the flow is very clear.
The focus in this is very clear. It is cool how there is flow visualization in such simple aspects of everyday life.
Brilliant image. focus is awesome, and colors/aesthetic are very nice.
