Ha! I thought about this one too but never got to do it. My Puns entry bombed :) Love the focus and sharpness here as well as DOF.

Interesting choice of background. The blues really complement each other well.

I wonder if it's just me being weird, but I noticed that there were 3 A's in your title (having used An AmpersAnd instead of an 'and') and 3 A's in your battery.

I wonder if these things were intentional.

Regardless, very nicely done. The only thing I really didn't care for was that the lid has been very obviously removed and placed in such a way to indicate that this is a totally manufactured pic. Doesn't take anything away from the pic though.

Good pun perhaps not as strong photographically. It may be the bottle that's really one element too much. The title would tell us that it's salt and the bright contrast with the colour of the battery would have given you a lot of composition freedom and options

What a great idea! The harsh lighting adds strength to the pun but detracts from the photo quality - imho. Maybe that bit of distracting salt(?) in the background should have been removed or brought into focus.

perfect example of a visual pun. And well-photographed as well. :)
