I like the use of low key here as it is a change (no pun intended lol!), but found my eye roaming around the shot a little too much; needs more of a focal point, maybe one coin tilted up and strongly lit. Still, refreshing to see low key used to drive home the idea of dark economic times.

I like the symbolism of the money going dark... and I love low key shots.

I like the low key approach. It's not used nearly as often as high key. A nice "change".

The composition isn't very strong, but I love way you've used the lighting to create dramatic highlights and contrasts.

it *almost* looks oversharpened. Otherwise, I like the lighting and composition.

I don't know why u made the image dark with high contrast, I don't like it too much

Too dark for my tastes. Perhaps that is the point? I do like the lighting and think that the edge of the coins are, for the most part, highlighted well against the black background.
