This picture demonstrates a laminar flow of water through a 1/2 mm hole.

I think it would improve the image if the water’s flow didn’t cross a light-to-dark background transition; perhaps move the camera lower down to be nearly parallel to the table?
Wow, amazing image. The laminar flow is beautifully captured in this photo. Kudos
Great job capturing this laminar flow, I know that’s not easy. I think a different direction of lighting might help draw attention more towards the stream rather than the vessel.
Use a macro lens would be useful here since your subject is so small.
Would you think of a different background for the image? I like how the flow looks completely stationary while we all know it is flowing.
I like the laminar flow you were able to create but wish the background was less distracting
I wish there was a less distracting background.
I love how you can see the flow switching from laminar to turbulent towards the bottom
I like how clear and smooth the laminar section of the flow is. The background is slightly distracting but overall a great photo.
I think the background choice makes one’s eyes really hard to find the intended focus of this image.
I think it would’ve looked better with being zoomed in or cropped closer, but overall it still looks really good!
The depiction of the laminar flow is quite nice! I like the contrast and the slight change to turbulent flow at the bottom is quite nice.
I like the right hand side of the picture showing the water hit the table. More lighting would really accentuate that.
I’ve seen some “laminar flow nozzles” where people constructed a nozzle to smooth out the flow on a larger scale, in the even that you wanted to experiment with this as a bigger stream.
I really liked how clear and clear the laminar flow is presented. I would love to see video of the transition between laminar and turbulent flow.
Permissioned Opinion: Background.
Using a lighter background through the entire stream would help highlight the flow better, as the bottom half of the stream you only see the reflection and not the actual stream.
It’s really satisfying to see such laminar flow that it looks static, I love that effect here. What was your lighting set-up?
I like the simplicity of this image, while also being able to completely depict the laminar flow of water.
Did you consider a larger hole? The flow is very laminar. Maybe consider using color
Nice and clear stream of laminar flow.
Would color add to this flow?
I like this depiction of laminar flow. Nice and simple.
