I'm shocked you don't think they are real! Tongue

All 1:43 scale, so about 4 inches on average I guess.

I like that you thought about using your toy cars to create a spiral theme. Photographed directly from above, you have achieved clarity throughout and good detail in each of the little cars. Great little camera Smile

I wish you had taken a little more care to get each of the borders around the central oval tray to be equal on all sides. I just feel this needs to be symmetrical.

I'm wondering also, what this would look like if you had shot not from above, but lower down, opening up your aperture and creating a shallower dof - would have to be at a good angle though to preserve the spiral in the image. Just a thought.

The cars are not really toys - they are display models costing around 25-30 each.... not the sort of thing you'd give to a kiddy! Wink

oops, my bad Wink My only knowledge of model cars is tinker toys, some of which I had when I was a young girl (yes, I played with cars.....) and back then they cost about $2 Canadian, but I am talking about 50+ years ago...... I even had some model tractors.....
