A kids physics experiment. The rocket is filled with water and pumped with air while being held down, it is than released and the air pushes the water out and propels the rocket up.

Hello from Critique Club.

You had a good subject, but I have some ideas to transform your image in a better one:

1 - The colors are saturated. You can fix this with an image editor.
2 - The theme may be in the center of the image. It is not.
3 - You could placed your camera in a lower position. You could see the rocket from the botton. So the image would have a more dynamic view.
4 - You could shot this photo a little more far away from the subject. This will change the image in a more didatic one ( easy to undestand ).

Hope you enjoy my ideas.

Quite like the retro feel of this. Looks like cheap film.

the saturation and noise on this are really off-putting.

I'm not a fan of the processing - sorry :(

It is too grainy and too "busy" and poor composition. This is purely my point of view and I'll not vote on this one but if I would give it a 4

Very cool water rocket! Photo leaves a lot to be desired, I'm afraid. Seems excessively grainy and soft looking. Not sure if there is much you could have done with it or not, though some noise reduction would certainly have helped.

noisy and grainy pics

lots of noise and the missel should really pop against that sky but it's kinda flat

Normally I wouldn't like this kind of processing, but here I feel it really fits the subject.

Great idea and well captured. For me the photo is over saturated and too noisey. But you can't deny that this hasn't met the challenge. Good luck

great concept clever title poor technical quality too noisy colors look strangely hued out of focus 5

Looks like a fun toy. Seems a bit over processed.

not a fan of the film grain, but well captured and composed.
