Have you ever flipped a coin and had it land on end? (in the carpet or in a crack?) That's what I was going for here.

It took me forever to get that dime standing on end... Shot with a F-Mount manual lens on my Pentax K body. I couldn't find the lens on the equipment list, but this is the one that I used. 35mm Nikkor prime f/2.0.

I got the idea from this site

Crop, levels, bw conversion, add borders and resize
