I like the movement of time and the colors you used here. This is stunning. You can improve this by making it look more realistic even though it already looks really realistic viewers like to see more of whats good. I really like how you shot this photo because im not so good at taking pictures mainly because my camera is kinda crappy. What I also really like is the way that the water is just splashing out of the glass. The background can use a little bit more light but mainly overall I think you did a really great job! Keep up the good work and I hope you took what I said into consideration.

I always love the water frozen in time type photos; that said, they can be really hard to pull off, and you really nailed the effect here. This really captures both the movement and action while portraying that idyllic sense of a moment in time, a stand-still.

A few things to point out, tech wise:
-The photo seems a bit over-exposed. I'd like to see what it is that's falling into the water. It seems a bit like a pendant, but the water the immense whiteness is making that a bit hard. I'm going to go ahead and assume you had to use a flash to get the shutter speed low enough to capture the moment; I hope I'm not presumptuous in offering that you might want to use a bounce flash? Or if that's what you did, maybe move farther away and zoom in for a tighter focus.

-This also feels a bit oversaturated. While it works for the green bleeding out of the blues towards the top of the glass and the cool smoky effect around the object, it feels a bit grainy and grating with the red bleeding out of the yellows. This may be just my personal opinion though.

I'd have to agree with :iconamaranth333:

My first thoughts on seeing this was that it was representing the Big Bang (the title seemed to reinforce that notion too). I like how outside the glass there is no background, just a void with a spattering of stars and planets. Then inside the glass you have the magnification of the core of the galaxy and the suggestion of nebulas. And just like the Big Bang, all matter is being expelled out into empty space.
