This idea randomly popped in my head, I have no idea why. But when it did, I knew it would be my challenge entry. I have a box of random money from other countries, which I used for emphasis in a mis trust in the American banking system.

I used a flash in an umbrella at camera right. This was somewhat pointing up, giving th scene a bit of a glow.

Then I edited mainly using Nik color efex to give the style, then the new Topaz Clarity to give pop to the money (while very easily masking the pop away from the mattress)

Sorry.....I like what you are trying here.....However, it looks overdone. Too much of a setup. I do like the DOF. I also like the colors
