Water balloon bursting above a man's hand, high- speed photograph. This effect was created by dropping a water filled balloon onto a pin. When the balloon burst, the water contained within it formed a spherical shape as the rubber contracted away from the surface of the water. This exists only for a few milliseconds, before the water expands outwards.
