Absolutely beautiful colors in the splashing droplet of water. It's very crisp and eye catching. Love the beautiful curves in the apex of the splash. The stray drops really add some extra interest. Great shot.

I can't quite decipher this shot aside from the wine glass at the top, but I like the colors!

Nice. I like the creative and patriotic take on this otherwise old idea. I think the light reflection on the blue bubble are distracting. Otherwise ....9

Stunning shot, the clarity in the droplet is brilliant, I would have liked the red on the right to be a bit redder, apart from that brilliant. [10]
