    The droplet in midair is an awesome shot!

    The timing of this picture with the drops all at different heights is amazing. It makes for a great picture.

    This is a great visualization of the Leidenfrost effect. I really like how you managed to capture drops at different heights above the hot plate, plus one about to to hit the hot plate. One small nitpick is the far left side of the hot plate got cut off, but otherwise, the framing and lighting are really solid.

    I love that you were able to pause the action mid air. The drops are very sharp and in focus.

    I like you made the background/bottom such that the focus is entirely on those drops. Made me appreciate the phenomena even more.

    The top drop looks like the main character, “Jack” from the movie Nightmare Before Christmas! Also to answer your question, a student explained that the temperature is above the boiling point so the bottom layer starts to evaporate, the drop forms a layer of gas and isolates it, so it floats and then lets it stay there longer, if a new gas is formed then it runs off.”

    Great image! I think the best attempt for this effect. The lighting works really well to put the motion on sort of a pedestal.

    I love how that one droplet bounced so far up and how some of them are barely touching the surface in certain places.

    The focus is spectacular. I like that we can visualize the flow of each drop

    I think the lighting in this image is perfect! It almost looks like water bouncing on a tree stump. I love how clear the water droplets were!

    I like how the subject of the shot is surrounded by a black background. It really makes the viewer able to focus on the droplets of water.

    I like the clarity of the droplets and their contrast with the black background.

    The image is a great visualization of the Leidenfrost effect. The focus on the image is perfect for the drops in the middle of the hot plate. I love the stillness of the image with the spherical water droplets.

    The background is really great. Also, I love how every drop is really clear. Well Done.

    I love that you were able to catch the whole process in this photo (bouncing drop, resting drop and also a floating drop).

    This captures the leidenfrost effect very well, especially on the drop that is in focus in the middle.

    I love the focus and how you captured the water bounce and how all are pretty much spherical!

    This is a beautiful image, I like the focus on the drops and how they have a sense of motion.
