Precession

A simple scene with objects modeled from real life, in this case two gyroscopes I__ have (and a pencil). Depth of field effect was added in the GIMP… didn’t get the hang of that plugin…

big version is here

That looks very nice! Almost photorealistic! I have a gyroscope that looks exactly like the right.

Only the dark background with the low-color-grey spot in the bottom seems a bit strange.
Maybe the string on the left side would be look better with the FocalBlur-Plugin. I struggled with it too. If you have implemented it and it doesn’t do anything, just play around with the values.

Your title got me in :smiley:
Well done.
The only crit is on the wire: it assumes a strange curvature… Still on the wire: there is a strange grey and black alternance.

Good job
