    WOW! These are bteath-takingly beautiful. You've created the illusion of 3-dimentionality.

    Would you consider sharing your technique?

    I might be totally wrong on this one but it looks to me like the photos are turned upside down?

    Cool effect!

    Great concept. Looks like cigarette smoke. Is that what it is?

    Whoa. I do like 3!!!

    In 3 the colours look like one-legged dancers! I really, really like that one best of all!

    The effect is very cool, and it will look good as a painting, too, I am sure!

    I hope that explains everything, its actually really easy to do. I could have used a whiter background, but my "studio equipment" is extremely limited (i later turned the lamp on the left towards the background for a brighter white). The only downside to this is having to go dump the water every 2 minutes, because you have to wait for all the bubbles to dissipate.

    For those who may not know, I achieved these colours by inverting the images in PS.

    Thanks everyone for your interest!

    be careful its highly addictive!!

    i have some UV paints that i am going to thin out and then drop into water like you have. but instead of regular lighting i will use a black light and just have a black piece of foam core for the background. just have to get enough time to set it all up and shoot.
