#79 Heads or Tails - You call it!

I shot this photo using the strobe feature of my Canon 550EX flash. Ever since I bought the flash, I have been looking for the shot to use it with. When the contest titled opposites came up I started thinking of subjects. The Heads/Tails idea shot with a strobe seemed like a natural - so here it is. The exposure was 1 second f9, the flash was set to 6 impulses at 20Hz. Now I can happily never use the strobe feature again! - Paul

I like the concept but I find the image details a bit too "busy".
