Very nice. Composition-wise, (to me) it would be better if you did not get the floor, and if you positioned your subject towards the middle, so that you have bills on both sides of the head. Lighting is very good here, I like the darker shade.

And oh, yes, Franklins would've left a better effect than GWs...

i like this. i have a sloght problem with the tones in the wall. A little too magenta. But the lighting on the model is very nice, and definitely gives that mannequin look. Nice capture of the floating bills. Good shot.

Neat concept but I think it would be enhanced by a different floor and chair, and perhaps less "pink" in the color tones. I like the composition and title.

I very much like this picture! Its very creative and i like the way the money is actually falling out of the sky. It is a good image to display surrealism. But you should have used 20 dollar bills!

I think if there was no money on the floor this would have been much more effective. could have been a 10. 7

Nicely done. Different lighting would make this outstanding. A 7.

Nice idea. Perhaps you should have crunched the money a bit more before the shot. I still like it.

Not a great photo - sorry. The light is very flat and not interesting.
