I really love this jellyfish and mushroom cloud-like image! The texture and flow of the fluid makes it look like vapor.
This picture is wicked cool — it seems like something out of a harry potter movie. Really creative and cool/effective way to capture Rayleigh-Taylor instability.
This image was so cool! The black/white was a great touch!
Just wanted to add, the video that shows how you did it was also a great addition. It’s cool to see it from a different point of view.
Nice framing and timing to create a jelly fish like plume
The color choice does a great job in highlighting the desired phenomena. Including the video also makes it interesting to see what the whole flow looks like.
I really appreciate the purpose with which this image was taken. You wanted to capture a specific phenomena, and you went out of your way to make sure that happened. I would possibly try adjusting white balance during shooting and/or in post. In post you could use color curves for this kind of effect.
The amount of detail in the structures of the paint is so cool. The monochrome effect really helps to create a high contrast between different features. I also like that you chose a specific instability to capture.
