    I’ve seen this with stones dropped into water, but it’s so cool to see an everyday version of that. The colors are great as well as the focus. Well done!

    Nice shot, it’s impressive that you were able to capture the moment of impact. The crater is really cool, and the raspberry has still yet to be covered by the fluid. This is a really cool artistic shot.

    I really like this image. The splash is captured really well and the focus is great. I love the use of colorful berries to bring colors to the image.

    Good job getting the streaks of raspberry juice interacting with the milk! You got some very nice crown elements on that drop. The colors seem a bit dark or overexposed, makes it look ‘loud’.

    Very full of colors. Cool splash picture and I could see how hard you tried to catch this moment.

    The focus of the splash is great and the timing of the photo is perfect. I also like how you can see the crown instability

    This is an awesome image. The coloring that you chose to do in post processing really works for this image. The crown and raspberry really pop for you. Awesome work.

    The colors in the image work great. Are the swirls in the milk the food coloring that were toned down or is this discoloration from something else?

    This is really cool. The colors and slight variations are great, I love the bleeding effect, and it’s perfectly focused. Great time resolution, and great timing on the impact.

    I like the composition of the image. The raspberry is in focus and so is the crown, very nicely captured.

    You captured a great crown instability. The microdoplets indicate that the reynold’s number is large, maybe greater than 1500. I would be curious to see a Re calculation.

    The splash from the raspberry is perfectly capture. I like the swirls in the background of the picture.

    Great image, the time resolution is great and really captures the exact moment of the impact. The exposure is good and the focus is where it needs to be. The red of the raspberry against the white milk is very striking.

    Very cool image. The focus and timing in this image are very well done. I really like the shadow of the crown splash on the pool of milk.

    I love this photo, the composition is dynamic and the coronet is beautifully captured.

    What a great capture! The raspberry appears to be bleeding and you managed to capture the shadow of the crowning effect.

    Very dynamic image, looks beautiful. Great timing and lightning, nice crown around the the fruit. The red and blue are the highlights in this picture.

    I really like this image due to how busy the scene is. It makes it feel more like an action shot with the other berries in the background of the dish.

    The focus and detail is really great. I like how the raspberry and the crown of milk is in focus and the other berries in the back are out of focus. The different colors in the milk add interesting details as well.

    I think the blur you mentioned is actually a result of the f stop you used, not the shutter speed. Great photo.

    A brilliant image, the colors are quite nice. THe motion blur isn’t too much of an issue. Maybe adjust exposure?

    The crowning effect of this image is highly distinct and the bleeding of the fruit colors adds to the depth of the image. I love the color contrast here!

    The focus is spot on. The red streak resembles the raspberry bleeding. Beautiful.

    Very pretty image. It looks like it could be used for a food ad. I like all the components of the picture, such as the other berries and swrils in the milk.

    This is a grate image, I really like the popping of the colors and the weird patterns throughout the fluid. The post-processing was also done quite well!

    Really cool contrast and the raspberry bleeding to the liquid is very interesting

    I like how the focus is directly shifted towards the raspberry being dropped. Great juxtaposition of colors.

    I love the overall aesthetic of the milk and raspberry together. Interesting colors swirling and bleeding into the fluid.

    The contrast and sense of depth in this image is outstanding. The lighting really brings out the colors.
