Oh, come now. It's a kids spinning top. It looks like the depth of field gremlin got you again, Donna. You need to use an f-stop of 16 or greater (probably 22 or 32) to get the total sharpness you need.

Looks a lot like a the old style push pin. However your file name seems to end the discussion.

Getting all sharp and crisp is nice, but let your eyes wander around on the pic and try to find the spots where the pin is in DOF range - I can see at least 3 areas. It makes the pic interesting in a special way - so another pin-picture with a wider DOF would be nice, agreed - but the piccie has something special on it's own too here.

Also the "dangerous side" is on spot here - that's what you look at because it's sharp (in both ways).

Nicely done - would experiment with some f-stop settings if I were you or even make a series... "from blur to sharp" or the like

Yeah, I was trying to show the "point" even at the expense of or to counter-balance the head of the tack. Donna
