    This is a beautiful image. I love the tiny droplet in the far right. Nicely done!

    I really like impact images, this takes a lot of skill to pull off! What a great shot, the shutter speed was really high which showed the impact well.

    Great exposure! It looks so cool and so defined!

    Awesome demonstration of the flow its a very serene picture

    The waves in the milk look very pure and sharp. It’s amazing how you got the water to interact with the milk. The drop looks like a person wearing a hat upside down, and the Worthington jet looks rather pointy.

    Great blue coloring against the white background. Using the high speed camera to capture a water droplet splash in some milk is a really cool experiment to produce the Worthington jet effect. Did you do any editing of the image in photoshop?

    The Worthington Jet was really clear and I like the difference in color between the water droplet dyed blue and the milk colored blue. Composition is pretty good!

    Really nice composition. The droplet flow alone is incredibly interesting. You might be able to study how surface tension and viscosity affect the geometry.

    Great color and nice, solid background, I love the reflections in the milk and the specular highlights, though the image does seem a bit overexposed, you could consider decreasing aperture size, though in this case I think it contributes to the image.

    Awesome effect and cool capture of the planetary shape. I think the back edge of the bowl is out of focus or edited to be a bit blurry. I think if there was a sharp border it would look even better.

    Beautiful. It looks like a planet with rings. Lovely and smooth and dramatic. Perhaps consider getting rid of the drop to the far right or else remove it?

    Amazing capture. It’s as if a planet with rings is gravitating above a plume.

    It is so cool that this happens. The texture of the water is very nice and the overall effect is surreal. The little moon off to the right is cute.

    Very interesting visualization. The color is nice and calm. The jet in the middle is very interesting.

    I like the image. The way the water rises up around the worthington jet, and how this jet collides with the second drop is very interesting.

    Really cool quick motion photography, I really like the fluid physics. I might change the contrast and change the lights/darks to bring out different phenomenon.

    Really great image! I like how the entire basin was left in the image. Is the ball entirely water and the rest is milk? The lighting worked well for seeing all the details of the flow.

    This image is super clean! Everything is very smooth and the image has great clarity and depth.

    This image is compelling. The droplet at the center of the image appears to be floating and the forces in this image are clear. The droplet appears to be flying upwards, rather than downwards due to the Worthington jet.

    The drop is really cool how there is kind of a ring around it. The focus and exposure is really good and enables you to accurately see everything going on.

    Great focus and lighting throughout the image. There are a lot of complex shapes going on here that are really pleasing to look at.

    Wow, I really like the color of the background vs. the color of the drop. It’s also interesting that you caught it at the moment you did. I would have cropped out the tiny droplet on the right.

    Awesome photo. Nice job on the timing of the drops.

    I really like this image. The colors are really pretty. I like the fluid flow and the texture of the water surface.
    Maybe crop more off the top?

    The focus in this image is really good. The colors seem a little dark, maybe lightening the shadows would help bring out the color? The flow is shown really well suspended in the air.

    Nice job. The drop isn’t quite time-resolved, but it definitely gets the point across.

    This is really cool, the ball above the drop does really look galactic. I think it would be cool to crop it to see just the ball.

    Love the UFO shape the water droplet forms as it descends into the bowl of milk. Overall, you’ve captured the flow well and the focus is perfect.

    The hovering drop looks similar to a planet. The waves of the liquid flow well together. Great work.

    Really great photo, the focus is spot on
