[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Water and oil don't mix. The bubble to the left is an oil drop, intended to provide some texture. The drip is a dyed blue liquid. A water drop exercise from my kitchen sink. I put a lemon fruit on the bottom to add form and shape.

I want to thank Sabine (wishnugaruda), TL's goddess of water drops, for providing the tech settings on her many shots which I duplicated.

Have a good day!

Hello Danilo!
Excellent focus, perfect detail and clarity, wonderful colours in your composition!
Fantastic result!!!!!!!!!!!
All the best!

What makes this picture to an eye-catching post, is the harmony of colors you managed to show through this wonderful work, Danilo!

Great experiment with perfect results! Though water and oil do not mix together but colors so and they are potentially spreading their effect in the picture.

Simply a fantastic composition, my friend!

best regards,

Bonjour Danilo.
Belles couleurs appliquées à cette image.
Le sujet de l’eau est quelques choses qui donnent de superbes images.
Bravo pour cette prise de vue.
Bonne journée.

Wow, that is amazing. Truly a work of art, very colorful, sharp image. Sabine is a great teacher and you are a great student. :)

Hi Danilo

The tight framing has given a superb abstract effect. Stunning colour & superb dof & sharpness with excelelnt light contrasts. Tfs!

This is so nice Danilo! I see how oil can make these shots even better! Beautiful detail, really nice effect with the flash, not overpowering at all. Super work!

Hi Danilo,

A beautiful abstract and study of colors and shapes. A great experiment, and I agree that it's nice that people share on TL so we don't have to reinvent the wheel each time. Ready for more snow?

Hi Danilo,
A wonderful experiment, very successful, in my openion!
A marvelous kaleidoscope of colors, what a marvelous effect a drop of oil can perform with water!
Great chemistry, my friend, accurate sharpness and nice color saturation. I'm fond of the blue, which is dominating!

Olá Danilo

Bela foto abstrata com um misto de cores fantásticas.
Um trabalho de arte com efeitos maravilhosos.

Hello dear Danilo!

WOW! Very lovely approach Danilo towards the mixtures and solutions. Thanks to the nature that they do not mix otherwise the sea would have been polluted long time before. This distinguishing property prevent people from discharging oil into water. Well it is the fight of organics and inorganic substances.
Well, nice composition with creative approach and presented artistically.

TFS, indeed very beautiful POV.

Best Regards,

Ciao Danilo,

Ah. this is a job I like to do,
play with water drops and see the
effects with dyes in water.
Beautiful effects, I like the addition of oil
because it does not mix in water, leaving the effects.
These picture is very nice.
Very well composition.
Good picture.

Have a nice day,


Nice idea and realisation.
Beautiful colors and focus.
Regards Zoran

Merhaba danilo,

Hello Danilo,

It is great to learn from friends.
You learnt settings from Sabine; I learned the word immisible from you!
What an interesting shot!
I really enjoyed just looking at it, seeing new shapes, new colours, new suggestions, the longer I stared.
My points really are for my pure enjoyment of this skilfully produced shot.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)
