Challenge: Children's Toy (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Canon EOS-300D Rebel
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6
Location: Back Yard
Date: Apr 4, 2006
Date Uploaded: Apr 4, 2006

First time in a long time that I had an image in my mind for the challenge and put it together set-up style! The yo-yo is held in place with a suction cup on the far side hence the tight crop. Hardly any PP. Slight crop to get rid of the prop, USM, a touch of levels, desated the red a touch as Ian's shirt was VERY red, resized and a final touch of USM.

Thanks to my boy Ian for posin'!

Hope ya like it! Gatorguy, you ain't gotta chance!
TC

Thanks guys, what a rush! Set up shots to follow!

Wow, this is great. I wondered how you did it. And the explanation was so simple. ;-)

Congrats on your ribbon with such a fine capture! At first, I like many others thought this was an action shot. Nice execution of a well-thought-out idea.

Great concept...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2006 10:42:04 PM
well executed...only thing I get distracted by is the background...if this was shot with a different background it would have rated higher imho
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2006 04:34:28 PM
Would have liked to have seen the guy in background slightly more in focus. But, great shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/08/2006 01:46:38 PM
Really Really like this one ! Nice Job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/08/2006 12:21:49 AM
Nice idea. Crop touching edge is a little too tight, I can guess that it is necessary for this "magic." More DOF would be better in my opinion, if you could keep the background from becoming distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2006 05:52:43 PM
WOW - Wondering - did you "fake" this shot or is it the real thing?Voting you a 7.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2006 02:04:08 AM
There is something to the very right of the yo-yo that shows it's being held up. Is there??? He he he... I might be wrong. Either or, I like the shot, but wouldve liked to see a tad more spin or movement on the yo-yo. The DOF is outstanding. It's truly a good shot nonetheless.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/06/2006 11:15:36 PM
Thats awesome!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/05/2006 10:56:34 PM
wow Great !!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/05/2006 10:32:58 PM
Good job capturing the moment, even having the logo straight. I like the depth of field too. The yo-yo seems a little too close to the edge though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/05/2006 02:32:12 PM
Great freeze frame
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/05/2006 09:54:52 AM
wow, This must have been hard to do! Great idea 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/05/2006 08:26:57 AM
Nice effect, well captured, wonderful DOF
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/05/2006 07:22:10 AM
To cast this shot with the yoyo at the right angle... surprising.... but realy good...
