Cute! And fits the challenge too. :-) The only thing I could see being added, is maybe have dunked the money in water or something and let it 'drip-dry' as shot was taken. But, I always think of these things after challenges are over... so, just ignore me. :-)

great minds think alike. I have shot the image in the past as well. I like the blue background - it makes the bills and the line pop nicely.
