I BORROWED the bicycle of my father's neighbour, and had my youngest brother hold it in the air, while I lay down on the ground and took the shot.
The wheel IS spinning ...just slowly, because the bike was a little heavier than it looked, and by the time the camera focused, it had slowed down enough to look still as I took the shot.
I then cropped away my brother's hands, and brightened some of the colours, while toning down the brightness a little.

Nice picture, interesting point of view, but I don't like the cyanish sky, looks like the result of a processing meant to improve an overexposed picture.

I miss the speed in the wheel here to really make it look like it's hitting a speedbump.
