Terrific, makes my eyes hurt. Is that really a drop in the air or just an illusion. 10

I love the title.....a mixture of "faux" for false and "vortex".....genius

Very interesting. I would like to know how this was done. Lots of "Round"! Maybe it's my monitor, but it looks a little grey to me, like it could use more contrast.

If I look at it long enough, I get dizzy. Unique idea and original.

An extraordinary image. The texture is a little weak in places, spoiling the illusion a bit, but not enough to stop you getting a ribbon!

I would have sharpened it a bit, to get more contrast and real black

Excellent!
Focusing this shot must have been a nightmare for you and the camera!
Tell me when it is over how you did it :)

Love the way the black circles play tricks with your eyes around the center...

Superb, love it ... but I have to move on quickly before my vision screws up too much! Brilliantly done.

Good picture, clever. I would really have liked to see the drop of water or whatever on a third in the top right-hand corner. As well as the circle in the bottom right.

What can i say....It is definitely not short of "rounds"
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow, I like ths one, pity the drop couldn't have been closer or bigger, so we could see more refraction in it.

Excellent!

This is a great effect - I'm sure you will have many people asking how you achieved this. I hope you share your secret. I'm guessing a simple drop of water falling onto a printed page - simple yet effective.
