This is my first photo attempting to use stopped motion. I felt that it would add an interesting effect to the idea.

Can I clean your pipes. Or your water pipe. Simple, sweat, and nice shadows.

What makes this "corporate"? For me, adherence to the challenge weighs heavily in my vote. That's why this image is rated 3. Having said that, I like the stopped action of the water, and the good catch of the green in the bill. I'm ok with the composition. I'd have done it differently. I'd have cropped it a little wider, and perhaps have included more than one bill. Bear in mind that these are just personal preferences. 3 sjgleah

Very nicely done. The drops are great.

good stop action. hope the bill dried okay! seems to be slightly yellow (the picture's cast) but that may be just me. karmat

Wickedly impressive camera work, great all round - DOF is tops, exposed to perfection, the water flow is well cool - great picture, it'll be up ther with the best...

I'm quite interested in what camera was used for this one?

Great composure and exposure. The drain cover is amazingly shiny/clean and has a nice flash to it.

Very clever!

Time to scream! No more down the drain photos, please!

Nice shot!

Good, except for the shadows from the head-on light source (built-in flash?) If you have no other flash, I find re-directing the built-in flash towards the wall or ceiling with a thick index card works.

Definitely the BEST of the "money down the drain" pictures this week. And one of only a couple of people to get a good high value bill in the shot. Lovely motion-stop of the water and a well positioned bill. Slightly boring and overly harsh light. But the technical excellence of this picture pull the score up a good couple of points.

I like this photo - it is very crisp and I like the composition.

Who would have thought that "Down the Drain" would be the cliche title of the week? Your's is by far the best of the four. I really like how you caught the water droplets in stopped motion. Very cool. The bill is very sharp! Very nice!!
I upped you from a 9 to a 10. Possible winner here! Swash

this is a neat photo but it doesn't really say 'corporate world' to me in a strong way... - jmsetzler
