Alberto Seveso took a series of photos where acrylic paint was dropped in water with a black background. The brilliant colors of this photo blending together creates a feeling of happiness and vibrancy in the heart. I appreciate the way the paints viscosity restricts it from blending into the water, and instead it stays a a perfect smoke-like bubble with its full color. I imagine the microscopic barriers between the paint and water molecules, and how it stops them from intertwining. Sevoso had to create the perfect balance of varnish and paint to make this smoke bomb untarnished.

    First Place:

    This image is a great example of the intersection of art and science. The vibrant colors give great depth and the high contrast ratio of the subject and background help accentuate the flow. This is an amazing moment of the paint pluming into the water, it creates an interesting sense of visual synesthesia.

    Second Prize – The contrast created in the image is amazing and it pops out like it is floating in space.

    First Prize – The contrast is amazing in this photo. The flow of the acrylic paint really pops and you can see the little details of it (the wrinkles). It also looks like cloth or a close-up of an organism which adds to the beauty of the photo.

    First Prize: the striking contrast between the paint and the background really makes this image pop. The intricate folds of the structure make the paint look less fluid-like which is a really cool effect.

    Second Place – the setup for this picture is really incredible of how it is completely black in the background and absolutely no glares or anything. The paint looks like fabric which is really cool, really great picture.

    First Prize

    The visual composition of the smoke-paint-bubble itself is exquisite, not to mention time that must have gone into getting the recipe for it just right. What really sells this one for me is the chaotic nature of the paint, contained in pristine darkness.
