One of my favorite photo subjects...Slinky. This time I paired it with another simple childhood toy.

Critique Club comment:

A striking image from a few simple elements nicely arranged with dramatic lighting. The black background creates a stark contrast that really grabs the viewer's attention. Although made of the same material, the Slinky and jacks have entirely different textures, providing some contrast, and there is a nice gradation of texture from the left to the right side of the Slinky. A couple of minor flaws: a bit cramped at the top and too much glare on the rightmost jack. But overall a nice image.

Lighting and technical quality in this image are excellent. Solid black background is perfect. This should place high.

A third of a new triptych called Primary Toys, maybe? ;o)

Nice lighting and composition. Had you included something of a different color, say red or yellow, it would have helped to jazz it up, but it certainly meets the challenge. 7

Good subject and light. I like the coposition. There is a highlight on the farthest right hand jack that is a bit distracting though.
