Spinning Medallian

Have you ever watched a spinning coin spin? When the spin dies, the coin appears to be thick as it flattens to the surface. I attempted to capture that effect with a spinning medallian. 1/2 second exposure with a very small aperature opening.

This is a REALLY cool photo and a GREAT idea for a whole set of images. I think you should find some other small objects that spin and make photographs of those, too. Ideas: a wedding band, a top (esp. one of those ones that Nate used to play with that, when done correctly, would flip upside down on its stem), and several different coins. Great job on the focus, by the way.
