    You have a really pleasant image to look at, gives something of a relaxing feeling. I also like how different areas of the image draw your attention in different ways.

    It’s interesting how the smoke only becomes clearly visible some distance above the tip of the incense. The focus seems a bit off, but I like the framing and inclusion of the tip of the incense. Would it be possible to make the background darker? I think the image would be more striking if the background were a solid black.

    I like the turbulence that’s pictured.

    I really liked the colors of the smoke. In my point of view, I think using a black background to make the colors even stronger.

    I really enjoyed the layers that are created in this photo. There is a focus on the smoke in the center of the photo, but the smoke in the background adds an interesting aspect to the photo.

    I find it interesting that the image shows different stages of flow. Have you consider cropping the incense stick part, it might improve the focus of the image. Great job!

    I like the colors of the smoke in this image, how it’s a bit tinted blue. My only comment would be, I wish it was a less noisy image. I’m not sure if it’s just the quality of the image you uploaded for posting, or if the original image is also noisy. But if you take an image with a high ISO (which it looks like you may have), you can take down the noise in lightroom.

    Love how the hotter gas near the source is transparent and as it rises and cools it turns opaque and we can see the structure of the flowing smoke. Great job capturing both the laminar and turbulent regimes of flow.

    I really like the transition from laminar to turbulent flow, not many of the get wet images have captured this phenomenon so far.

    I loved the rule of thirds and setting of the image. It really makes the image feel profound and majestic. It is very cool to see the difference between laminar and turbulent flow.

    It is very interesting to see how the flow actually changes and both the laminar and turbulent parts look great.

    I like how we can see the subtleties of the difference in color of the smoke from a pearl white to a white gold. This variation in color adds a lot to your image and makes it very interesting to look at.

    The way you capture both laminar flow as well as turbulent makes for a very effective visual effect.

    The range of scale from the smoke is very interesting. In order to trigger it you had to move it which makes it very interesting.

    I like how you created the environment that allowed laminar and turbulent flow to be photographed at the same time, that is a very ingenious trick in order to get the desired effect.

    I like the two-phase flow representation in the image from laminar to turbulent

    The transition from laminar to turbulent flow looks regal in my mind.

    Great idea to capture the image by shooting up to see most of the smoke trail. The tip of the incense also adds a nice color accent to the image.

    I like the captured transition in flows. Did the heat from the incense cause you difficulties ?

    I think your technique of photographing it from below was a smart choice. I also really like how you kept the smoldering part of the incense bright orange/red to keep some color in the image.

    Very cool photo, I liked how you can see the turbulent flow close to the incense and laminar higher up in the air. I thought the lighting was well done and brought out the features of the smoke.

    Very clear display of laminar and turbulent flow. I like the black and white of the whole image with the glowing red tip of the incense.

    What was the process for resetting the experiment in between shots?

    I really like this one! Seeing the transition is cool, and I’m I like that you were able to capture the entire flow and the stick in one shot.

  • I really like how the space of the background enhances the smoke and the mood of the image. How do you feel about how much of the incense stick is in the image? Would you consider cropping so that a little less of the stick is in the image and the smoke and flow is more proportional to the image?

    The glow of the incense is a beautiful aspect to include in the photo. What do you think about the focus of the camera on the smoke vortices?

    Very nice capture of this classic flow phenomenon. Great job setting your focus right on the middle of the smoke.

    What was used as your original background before editing?

    I like that you can visualize the different kinds of flows in this image.

    I think that taking the image from the bottom is a really great idea, because It is like a projection of the 3d flow onto the 2d x-y plane. Basically it just makes it a lot easier to understand what is happening in the image.

    I appreciate the editing that you put into your photo in post production. You did a good job at makg the smoke pop out from a contrasting background color.

    I like how you were able to capture some orange color in the smoke.

    Great focus and lighting. Also, I love how the photo shows the clear transition of the flow.

    Its very interesting to see how the flow of the air causes the smoke that was once uniform in a laminar type flow to suddenly expand and become turbulent. Good job editing the picture to make the background appear darker and make the smoke and incense pop out

    The inclusion of the incense was very smart and clearly tells the viewer how the experiment was carried out. I love the colors apparent in the smoke and how they aren’t just white.
