    There is beautiful textures on the ferrofluid! I love how prominent yet soft the spikes are in the image. Nice lighting and a good mix of colors too.

    The colors, shapes and overall texture of the image is stelar. I’m picking up feelings of warmth, chaos, but also control from the colors and shapes of the fluid.

    The colors really contrast each other in this image and pop, it looks almost like a lava flow.

    I think that this is the most beautiful image I have seen all semester. You captured and edited the colors and textures so they are so outstandingly beautiful. Great job.

      I was about to comment the same thing about this standing out to me as the best I’ve seen all semester, and in the running for my favorite single flow visualization I’ve seen

    I love the color contrast in the image. It reminds me of a honeycomb with the ferrofluid and oil. Very gorgeous phenomenon.

    I like the diagonal that the ferrofluid forms through the image, and the separation that the fluid forms in the right-hand side is really cool as well. Excellent focus and detail in the image!

    I really like the cropping in this photo. The lack of context (the plate or dropper) really makes this photo feel surreal, its very interesting. The color pallet is also very unique and pleasing.

    I wonder why some of the spikes seem to curve in one direction.

    The coloration and texture in this image is really great, and I’m not sure all of the editing that you’ve done but the contrast between the colors really helps to highlight the shadows, light points, and complex varying topography of the flow.
