67 percentile for really pushing the limits here... let's say it could have been far worse ;)

i think the photo should jsut have gotten good for looking cool, but those silly dpc-ers actually making criteria for a challenge... pfff, franchement! :P

but doesn't the ferrous stuff stay stationary as long as the magnet is under it?

What the! This is really cool - marking as a favorite, want to know how you did this, as it's well done. On the short list at the top.

Wow, very cool. Can't wait to see how you got the spikes in the fluid.
08/12/2006 12:07:30 PM
Fantastic symmetry, and no sign of the camera in any of the reflective surfaces, good stuff
08/11/2006 05:23:24 PM
what the f.....

waya to capture attention it's really great

Where in the world did you come across the ferromagnetic material... I love this stuff, great idea.

i could possibly score this higher if i knew what it is and what's going on, but i think it's asking too much for me to google your title and research what is going on here. [and this is one instance where i don't want a pm explaining it]. it's an interesting abstract, to say the least. i also think the background is a bit distracting.

Very, very cool. I might darken the corners a bit, but this couldn't be much better.
08/10/2006 06:25:43 PM
i had to google this before i scored it. never neen it before, nice
08/10/2006 11:11:24 AM
WoW! 10

i dont know how to vote on this photo because it looks awesome, but i dont get the sense of stopped motion. Since its fluid it must have motion, but is it so thick it barely moves? hmmm...well after thinking it over I must give you the best score. The fluid looks so silky. Very Well Done. Good Luck!

This is amazing.
08/08/2006 06:43:48 AM
This is so cool.. I like it.
08/07/2006 05:52:05 PM
Did you make this yourself or where did you get it?
08/07/2006 03:53:07 PM
Very cool and spiky!
08/07/2006 03:35:43 PM
??? This is good. Take an image of something that I don't know what it is, therefore don't know if it's really been captured in a 'Stopped Motion' state or not? Guess we'll find out after the challenge...hope you have something in your notes. Good luck in the challenge.

10 from me for coolness! I had to get educated about ferrofluid. I want some, now! Well done and interesting shot.
08/07/2006 12:55:08 PM
Nicely done.
08/07/2006 07:09:06 AM
is this for real? wow, whatever it is it looks amazing
08/07/2006 01:36:45 AM
What a really interesting photo! Well done!
08/07/2006 01:26:37 AM

08/07/2006 12:15:11 AM
