I really liked this photo. I thought it would do much better, not really sure why it did not. Good luck next time around.

this is technically excellent and I wish I had props like this :) There is something keeping it from popping big time though ... perhaps a little more drama in the angles and POV.

Clever idea about "green" - will be curious to hear where the 100k+ came from. The PPK can be explained, but the 100k+... hmmmm.
I like the photo - good DOF. Extra point for the effort too.

nice idea and shot - I think I'd have cropped off the top so just the cash was showing:-)

Is it legal to have that much money on you?

When I read the title of this challenge, I expected to see a plethora of dollar-bills submitted. Uncannily, this is the first "money-shot" I've so far encountered (and I'm about halfway through the pile), and I'm pleasantly surprised to see its creativity and presentation. Nice work.

Get rid of the gun and I like it

Hey where did you get all the money? The more important thing is.... Why arent you sharing? Great shot. Thought of something similar but couldnt get a hold of a million dollars.

Strangely, the color green is remarkably absent. Lucky for you that the challenge didn't specify that it had to be the color. As for an actual critique: There are some blown areas, especially in the foreground, and you can see in the two bundles at the upper left that they're not authentically stacked. Nice idea, however.
