Argh! Shot on the road trip to Minnesota and edited on my husband's laptop. Way too underexposed. :(

It wouldn't have made much of a difference in score, but it's driving me up the wall anyway -- it should look more like this:

Anyway, it's an old wooden top of my mother-in-laws. It's incredibly wonderful, and it spins forever!

interesting, I'm trying to see if you shot the top while it was spinning or stuck it on a nail through the planking. Tilted horizon will cost you in terms of score (straighten is a standard feature in most dslrs and p*ss these days). Nice idea but seems to be very underexposed.

Cool idea. I understand the darkening and low focus is to push the boy down the visual hierachy but I dont think he needs to be both out of focus and darker, if in focus his gaze could drive the attention back onto the top, as it is once my attention shifts from the top there is nothing to bring it back.
