Smooth as Silk, that is the theme for a photo contest I entered this photo in:
It is obviously cropped, but I wanted to keep the shadow in as I thought it made the photo a bit more interesting. I messed around quite a bit with my shutter speed when I was making this image. I wanted to show the motion, but not blur it so much that you couldn’t tell that it was a top.
Your critique is welcome, but wish me luck even if you don’t like the photo 🙂
