WOW sam, you amaze us everyday with your photos,

Posted by christine at April 27, 2007 01:44 AM

Nice catch. Interesting lighting?

Posted by Chaz at April 27, 2007 02:02 AM

Wow, this is a very cool shot. Great job!

Posted by Noel at April 27, 2007 02:17 AM

WOW. I've been following your photoblog for about 6 months and haven't made a comment yet...but this photo warrants one for sure. It genuinely touches my soul. It's not everday you come across something like this. Simply beautiful.

Wow. I have been looking at this page for at least half a year. I even have it set to be like my homepage instead of google for example. When I opened my internet today I was shocked. This image is soo beutiful. I cant stop looking at it. I even rearranged my whole desktop which is like my life so that it the ink would not be touched by a folder as my background. I have never commented before though I have loved many a picture. Today I loved this soo much I was moved to comment. I think that says something about the quality of this picture. I aspire to be able to create an image like this some day. Thanks

omitting the border has made the pic more beatiful in the page.

Posted by Kamira at April 27, 2007 03:03 AM

Ah, very cool! It looks a bit similar to smoke, but much fuller and concentrated. Very interesting!

Posted by vg at April 27, 2007 03:20 AM

Posted by Deny at April 27, 2007 03:44 AM

Nice one! I really like the lush colors.

Oh btw, still got one change to make on the Netvibes module. Nothing big: Got to change the title so it can handle long descriptions of the picture.

Posted by Andy Smith at April 27, 2007 09:29 AM

Awesome! It's so cool. An amazing freeze-frame of the transformation of liquids.., can't stop looking at it.

Posted by Kimberly Way at April 27, 2007 09:41 AM

beautiful shot of the liquids mixing. could you provide resolutions for background images?

Posted by mike at April 27, 2007 09:42 AM

Superb! Una foto sugerente.

Posted by García Quintana at April 27, 2007 09:47 AM

Wouldn't think that that sort of stuff would be you forte.

Posted by b at April 27, 2007 09:54 AM

Simply put, W O W . . . .

Can we have some details?

Posted by anda at April 27, 2007 10:27 AM

wow, awesomee shot.

Posted by Radvixen at April 27, 2007 10:37 AM

Very nice abstract shot. Did the water have any movement or was it motionless water?

Posted by Ian at April 27, 2007 10:41 AM

one word ....'wow'

Posted by Ibrahim at April 27, 2007 10:58 AM

very cool!

Posted by rosh at April 27, 2007 11:04 AM

Awesome shot. I love the lighting you've used for this. How did you get the edges to blow out so nicely?

Posted by Dennis Marciniak at April 27, 2007 11:15 AM

Man, you do some COOL STUFF! Awesome shot!

Posted by Alice at April 27, 2007 11:26 AM

Wow! Really like your blue ink shot!

Posted by Randy at April 27, 2007 11:27 AM

Wow wow! Something totally new from you, it's great!

Posted by Scott Murdoch at April 27, 2007 11:35 AM

Great capture!

Posted by Harlequinpan at April 27, 2007 11:38 AM

the top half of the ink drop looks like a woman's face gazing (in the direction of the right corner of the photo) at something her hands. Ink drops in water are like clouds.
beautiful shot.

Posted by Rae at April 27, 2007 11:48 AM

Wow! Till now I thought one could produce that wonderful pictures only with computers. Please, please provide a wallpaper version of that picture in an accurate resolution :). Thanks a lot.

Posted by ion at April 27, 2007 12:07 PM

how the heck do you these wonderful things !?!??

Posted by Crash at April 27, 2007 12:39 PM

Perfect switch of subject matter. I can see the basis of a few animal images in this. Even without noticing that element it has a pleasing effect.

Again your eye notes a moment worth remembering.

An ink blot as the begining of a painting is a common trick. Especially nice when the ink blot is particularly good to begin with. Now ink in water could be a new approach, using the fixed photo image to paint from.

Posted by Hugh Petrie at April 27, 2007 12:47 PM

Wow, that is an amazing shot!

Is it possible to get this as a desktop image?


Posted by Thomas at April 27, 2007 01:07 PM


How did you get the pure white background?

Posted by Avery at April 27, 2007 01:21 PM

WOW, what a great picture and a nice change from your usual shots. Bravo.

Posted by mel at April 27, 2007 01:43 PM

Fantastic shot! This is amazing. Details?

Posted by Carlye at April 27, 2007 03:05 PM

Great concept Sam! I inverted the colors and am using that as my wallpaper :)

Posted by sriram at April 27, 2007 03:14 PM

Amazing !!

Posted by Naimi at April 27, 2007 03:26 PM

Sam, this is great could you please post a wallpaper size of this image?

the colors are brilliant... love it !

Posted by Vlad at April 27, 2007 03:28 PM

Simply phenomenal!!!
After viewing your site every day for about a year and a half, this is the most abstract creation I've ever seen to date. This needs to make its way in a gallery!
It reminds me of looking up at clouds as a kid, where you see a subject. I see a unicorn!
Keep em comin!

I'm using this as my new desktop image.

Posted by paul at April 27, 2007 04:54 PM

This is absolutely beautiful! How did you get the white background if it were underwater? This is so different from your usual work, but I love it just as much if not more. Could we see more of this, or the video or something?

Posted by Alana at April 27, 2007 05:27 PM

> WOW sam, you amaze us everyday with your photos,

Take a black background, drop ink in water. Shoot some pictures :) and invert your picture in photoshop (STRG+I), change color (STRG+U) and enjoy. you can use same workflow with smoke.

Posted by Rajko at April 27, 2007 05:28 PM

awesome pic!

Posted by Davin at April 27, 2007 06:18 PM

It's an angel holding a baby.
