"Anti-gravity" is often used to refer to devices that look as if they reverse gravity even though they operate through other means. In this picture, a shot was produced with anti-gravity greens arrangement, dynamic splashes, and fun atmosphere which created an illusion of water drops flying up! These drops are called pendant drops which are suspended from a bulk liquid. The shape of the drop results from the relationship between the surface tension and gravity.
