This was a very fun shoot, and I hate to ruin the shot for you, but the drop is actually sticky tack coated in ink, I couldn't get the right consistency to have an actual drop.

Clever work with the drop. I like these kind of tricks hehe. Good job with the composition. Only nitpick are those red lines in the paper, but we find what we can. I sure know how that works.

Love the simplicity of the look, but the complexity of the catch in this shot!

Great concept...I think I would have cropped off the bottom two inches...where the red starts on the paper (and it's not just because of the red, it's because the paper is looking a bit blown).

Very nice. I give this an 8. The blown out portion on the left side is what's a bit distracting. Otherwise an interesting shot.

Love this sort of photo. How much paper did you ruin with the ink drops? Good luck.

The red on the pages distracts me and makes this not as good as if the reds had been reduced, in my opinion. I like the concept and the paper patterns.

I'd love to see what this looked like AFTER the ink dropped.
