Well, at least for most of us burning money is surreal.

A $20 bill was accidently set fire by alcohol on a mirror - I think there may have been a little gas and 2-stroke oil involved, as well. Man it went up fast. Just happened to be there at the right time as I attempted to extinguish the fire and got a nice snap. Actually the bill was there for only about 3 seconds of the 8 second exposure. Shot at about 1:2. Just increased contrast and saturation to comensate for jpeg.

Nice shot. However it doesn't seem surreal. At least to me.

Wierd, but hardly surreal. Burning money is not the best of ideas either. Colours could've been a lot richer. Some auto-contrast could've helped... 4
