How clever! I don't know how you managed to get those $ signs to reflect so nicely, but it's what made the photo work so well. I'll bet this took some time and doing to get right!

A subject every, working, person over 18 can relate to!

Now that's how to manipulate a mandatory subject, and make it work!

Which came first the title ... or the photo? Perfect 10!

One little old 9 wouldn't have brought you up to a higher position, but that's what I would have given you if could have. This was the first one to catch my eye, and kept it place on the top of my list.

An elegant dig - with a touch of humor (a Cary Grant Shot!)

Same standard idea, tacks/tax, 4/15, etc. but taken to the new, original level for this challenge. Excellent reflection and good execution. Currently in my top 10 images.

This one required some studying, and glad it did, as I may have missed some of it's finer (and subtle) details. The $ signs make it! Well done!

OK... I thought it was clever... until I noticed the reflection of a dollar sign in every tack surface! Wow! Very nice!

VERY simple and effective shot. Love the gold against the black, and the dollar sign highlights and really neat. Also, the border works nicely.

Dollar signs aren't very noticeable...the border is a little distracting.

Pretty cool. And real TACKS! Like the reflections. How long did it take you to polish them? They actually look like little lights. 9 for a great job.
