Purified water is subcooled below its freezing temperature and tapped against the table to create a nucleation point for freezing.

    Nice work, I love how the small shake starts freezing the water. This is shot very well against a dark background with the subject lit well. Is this shot in slow motion? That definitely makes it way more interesting to look at, you can really see a lot of the detail in the freezing.

    What a cool (literally) fluid property demonstration! How did you freeze it? I think it could use more contrast, possibly, but otherwise nice lighting and focus on the subject.

    Good example of burst nucleation, I like the music pairing as well. The great composition and lighting make a relatively tame process come through very interesting.

    So cool. I’ve never seen this before. Really awesome capture. I want to see more! Next time set up a second macro camera to capture the details of crystal formation. That is if you ever do this again… sounds like a tough process.

    Really great job executing the freezing on command. It’s very interesting how the crystals form from one point.

    Real cool. You had a vision and you realized it. Freezing is not a familiar fluid phenomena for me, it was nice seeing this up-close and in slow motion. It’s cool that the crystals grew at different rates, I can see that well at 0:04.

    Awesome demonstration. I saw this experiment a while back and have been wanted to give it a try since. Great job on the lighting and focus of the video.

    Simple and beautiful. Great effect and music addition. The way the water freezes like that is pretty unique.

    I like the visualization that you got of the freezing of the water. Nice focus and color for your video as well. I really like seeing the progress of the freezing.

    This is really interesting video. Nice black background. i could easily see the crystallization of water.

    Great video, good focus and exposure, and the music really goes well with the graceful imagery. I like the framing and the homogeneous background, but the video is a bit grainy; you could consider lowering the ISO gain to fix that.

    Good framing and setup to focus on the freezing. I think the lighting might be off somehow. The ice could be a bit darker to show the crystals forming easier.

    Awesome concept, technically may want to lower your exposure so the crystal formation is more visible. Also it could be interesting to try this with food coloring in the liquid.

    Amazing physics in the video. So cool that it does that. Great video qaulity, I like the music and the overall video. Nothing I would change.

    The flow physics is apparent and very appealing. It seems like its in slow motion even though its not. Great video

    That is a great video with how you slowed down the video. That seems like the setup and execution was very precise.

    Nice music to accompany the flow. The actual ice inside the bottle is a bit out of focus and some details are lost due to that. It sounds like it was hard to get the focus correct so maybe focus before the reaction.

    I love how this video turned out. We can clearly see each spike of the water crystals forming. Beautifully done.

    I’ve never heard of this type of flow before. Nicely captured. Why do the crystals move downwards?

    This video was a really cool idea. I really like watching the ice form. The flow is really pretty to watch.
    The spreading ice is so satisfying.

    Really cool flow effect. I enjoy this one because the physics are so easy to understand. The music was also edited quite well and the higher framerate was enjoyable.

    This is very relaxing to watch and the music choice is perfect for the fluid motion occurring. The lighting and the container you used were great choices as well.

    I really like the set up of this video. It is cool to see water freezing like this. Does the fact that the water is purified change anything?

    Awesome flow demonstration. Love the staging and set up of the shot.
