Impressive photo! It should be a favorite to win.

As one of the foremost artistic spinning top performers in the world, it is great to see you posting, Jochen!

Hey, here is a nice one, shot during a performance this year in Augustdorf, Germany.
I call it "top on top".

Top on Top by Schellatti

I was looking at this item I keep on my dresser in my bedroom and realized I had never taken a picture of it.  This was given to me in 2005 on my 53rd birthday by my staff when we were just two years into the Rizal Re-Creation Center after finishing our ten years at Caliraya Re-Creation Center.  Wasn't sure where to post it but this is a pic page so here it is!

What a nice birthday present you go! Probably not a competition photo, but the sculpture is superb!

I like the church steeple photo. I always wanted to see Mark stumped!  >:D

Cool wood in wooden hand.  I really like that.

And that is the first I saw Mark on the wood stump at that angle with the steeple.  Very nice!!!

It just hit me that a picture of Taka with his 150 demonstrators would be quite amazing.....especially if they were all doing the corkscrew.  Just a picture of 150 people holding a top would be something special.  Of course, maybe that is not possible.  On the other hand, maybe he already did this!?
