Battery Bubbling Energy!!!
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Battery Bubbling Energy!!!
Battery Bubbling Energy!!!
This is really probably should be a special effects entry -- there isn't any photoshop. This was all done in camera. I made this with the intension of the energy catagory this month so, we will see???
It was a lot of fun to create. I pilled all my batteries in a stack and told my kids to make a design. They had a great time! Then we took tons of shots. :o)

So, I have to thank Griffin and Weston for their help!! :o)

I just thought I would repeat and say great image! At first I thought it was photoshop and then after reading the comment I was extra surprised! My photo newbie butt does not really know much but great job.

Thanks you guys for the wonderful comments! I really appreciate them! There isn't any photoshop at all to this image, and trust me I would tell you if I did. This was accomplished by zooming in really close to the batteries and then during the one second exposure I jaggedly zoomed out. When I jaggedly/or took a slight pause while I was zooming is what made the multiple circles. :o) I thought it ended up looking like bubbles!! :o)
