99. Spinning Top

by Ricardo April. 09, 2010 3912 views

This was one of my toys from my childhood! Today I found it and decided to take some shots of it spinning! I got the results I was wishing!

Today was too hot to have a walk. I'm still getting ‘'ready’' to the hot again. :P
24ºC is just good! hope it keeps like that!wo-wo!

Também gostei sempre muito de brincar com piões e este me fez lembrar a minha infância! :))

That's really good. According to me, #2 is the best : the colours are great and you made a good use of the depth of field.

Wow - terrific action shots Ricky. When I saw #3 as a thumbnail, I thought that it was the same type of snail that Kozuka had posted today ;-)

Perfect idea to spin it in that little groove in the floor! Great use of motion, too!

Good idea and I like the results. This would be a great submission for Ted's "light, camera, action" Gallery of Light!

Love the third shot with the top leaning slightly over. I can imagine how a shot like this would look with the top leaning even further over. It would appear to defy gravity!
