good play on words

Nice idea with the title and good execution, but I just don't think the picture stands on its own. I'd like to be able to know why this battery is where it is without a title.

Congratulations on capturing this! The color tint tones down the dramatic impact of the splash moment-how would this look in B&W?

The absolute rule with the water splash genre is to have a bright, sharp image. Unfortunately this image suffers from having neither. Try using 2 or maybe 3 flash units to get enough light to stop the action.

The lighting seems dark, but I love the concept

The overall hue/tone doesn't do much for me, but the idea is great!

Back to comment. Cool idea and nice crop. Good splash too. IMHO this shot might not be living up to it's potential because it could use a brighter (fairly vibrant colored) background to provide the eye with a little more "WOW". Bumping up to 7.

Sure it's just me, but really hate the color here, sorry.

looks like its a broken glass, is it broken actually? :) nice water and nice title. a brighter picture with a bit more contrast would have suited my taste better.

I like the title, I like the concept, but for something that is referring to energy, I would like to have seen more brightness from the picture. The cooler darker tone (greenish on my screen), does not convey energy. Maybe a lighter background to really help the splash (cool capture!) and the battery pop out more.

The photo seems a little too dark to me. I like it though and you had a great idea. The border is a nice touch...I wish more people would add borders. Give the photo a 10

Great splash capture, but it's way too underexposed.

I really like the idea, very nice capture. Would like to see better lighting though.

interesting idea

I love the still "motion" here. The coloring and lighting is perfect. Good Luck

I barely even noticed the battery, and might not even have gone looking for it if not for the theme of the challenge. It's a nice idea, but I feel it might have been nice if the battery were more visible. Also, the color of the image seems off to me, as does its lacking brightness.
