Water run over an apple. Its surface acts hydrophobic and causes most of the water to glide off however, the droplets that remain show the adhesive molecular forces holding the water to the apple’s surface while the cohesive forces keep the water in the droplet shape

    The picture is overall very artistic and nice looking. I think the flow could’ve been focused on a bit more for flow visualization, but you still described plenty of flow there.

    I would have liked the image to focus more on the droplets. But the apple could provide nice color refracted through the droplets.

    I love the lighting! Everything is so crisp and clear!

    Cool picture, I like how the apple is the focal point of the image and the droplets are a secondary aspect. It makes me appreciate the fluid physics even more.

    Did you consider standing the apple on its bottom, so that the image would also capture its stem?

    At first, I thought it is a simple picture of an apple , but when you start explaining the meaning behind I think it is a creative way of showing this phenomenal.

    The apple looks very fresh and appetizing I love how the light reflects around the apple and that there are certain dark spots.

    Why does the droplets stay at extreme angles?

    Great focus on the droplets especially on the side of the apple. There is that glare spot on the top of the apple, perhaps cross angle lighting might help with not having glare in the image.

    I find the glare in the middle is very distracting, but I like that the image is natural and showed the water droplet very clear.

    I like how you captured the increased appearance of freshness by using the adhesion of water and how you can still see the water beads on the left side of the apple that are reflecting light from the bottom.

    The quality of the picture is good. Maybe to get a better result, play with the lighting more to not get that reflection.

    Your choice of setting the ISO to be 1600 did a great job of showing a clear picture with enough brightness. Although there’s a reflection of the light in the middle but it’s not hard to get rid of it with a bit of adjusting the camera’s settings.

    I like the clarity of the droplets but I would maybe suggest cropping the photo more or moving in a bit to get a macro image. I think that way would help highlight the adhesion effects.

    The droplets makes it looks like a fresh apple, and now I really want to eat one. Good picture, could’s you somehow edit the glare in the middle?

    The background looks velvety and soft, while the apple looks crisp and hydrophobic.

    What was the decision making behind the placement of the red/yellow skin of the apple?

    I like the idea of the image. I wish you were able to possible zoom in more into the beading on the apple. I think it would be interesting to see a video of the beading and flow of the apple.

    This image is very cathartic because of the smooth surface of the apple and the satisfying droplet captured. What was your lighting setup?

    Very simple photo, but done very well. Really captures the captures the physics behind it well despite seeming to be so basic at first glance.

    The use of the apple is simple, but so interesting to see the effects of adhesive molecular forces. Very good use of physics to visualize the hydrophobic surface of the apple.

    I think you chose a good background to contrast the apple. I also like that you chose an apple with a gradient of color.

    This photo is very peaceful. You very effectively showed the cohesive effects.

    Such a refreshing fruit and nice focus. I like the chemical bonding interaction it displays.

    Why did you choose an apple instead of another fruit?

    The background of the photo looks great, and provides good contrast.

    Apples generally have a pretty waxy texture on their surface until you wash it off. Was this picture taken with the waxy surface or after washing it where the surface was a little slicker?

    I never knew the reason behind this effect. I think your picture explains it wonderfully.

    I enjoy the droplets on the apple as it makes the apple look “Fresh”

    I think the focus you have set on the apple emphasizes all the important details of the drops sticking to the apple.

  • I really like how “crisp” it makes the apple look, the beading really emphasizes the photo!

    I like how simple yet detailed this photo is. This is a great depiction of the drops and the forces acting on them.

    The color of the apple is stunning in contrast to the black background. I almost wish the light source was not top down so that my eye was not drawn directly to the reflection of the light rather than the droplets.

    I love the background. It looks like the apple is just floating in the dark.
