This is a copy of a dollar bill with black construction paper in the background. I used paint for the blood.

"Corporations make a killing." So true. Too many big businesses have built their profiits on the "BLOOD, sweat, and tears" of the working man. Your pic is chilling commentary of that attitude.

I like the idea and the image is nice and crisp but the composition doesn't work well for me.

What did you use for the blood?
08/03/2002 09:29:00 PM
Neat idea but I believe that is illeagal.

If the nail was sharper this would be brilliant! Great idea though, simple yet packs a punch.
08/02/2002 08:31:00 AM
WEll done.

very powerful statement. some have probably blasted you but they are fools :). few ways to improve this, most involving maybe some more dramatic lighting choices with a bit more shadow on the nail. . . otherwise excellent. 8. mag99

dramatically, visually succinct! Not sure what it has to do with the theme.

Very effective picture, well composed with good detail, lighting, color saturation. Very good. Congratulations! 10 Gracious

blood money...nice. I like the fitting look in George's eye...can't put it into words but it seems to go well with being nailed. Could have used a little more focus on the nail (I played with something similar this week and had a similar annoying problem with focus on the 'nail.' I think the texture on the black fabric detracts a little too. 6

This is a great idea; the blood money idea is inventive, the picture quality and composition is spot on and (I think) this could have been a winning picture but for one fatal flaw – the blood doesn't look real enough. I can't be more specific, and perhaps other voters wont be quite so pedantic, but for me personally, it spoils the whole picture – sorry…

A blue denim shirt behind that dollar would make the blood more poignant.

Killing for a $1 bill? c'mon!! Show me a $1000 with real blood on it, then we'll have something.
07/30/2002 05:28:00 PM
very crisp
07/30/2002 05:04:00 PM
Well thought out and executed.

Good focus and composition. Lighting is a little uninteresting, though.
07/30/2002 05:39:00 AM
WOW!!! what a nice idea!!! :)
07/29/2002 10:01:00 PM
Clever idea! nice clean shot!
07/29/2002 06:58:00 PM
what the treasury going to say about defacing all these bills nice concept
07/29/2002 05:02:00 PM
very dramatic use of symbols
07/29/2002 03:58:00 PM
Very clear shot. (was any money "hurt" in this production?) I like the angle of the bill, nice interest. Good amount of negative space. (gotta learn that myself) The closest thing I have to a critical (bad) comment is the head of the nail.....pretty picky. Mine is a money shot, too, so I think the challenge was met. 9 Swash

In my opinion the nail should have been through a credit card, since that is where most people are being bled dry! Good composition, lighting, I like this shot because, to me, it is almost visceral. lhall

Great photo... Very creative..10
07/29/2002 12:43:00 PM
artistic idea
07/29/2002 11:14:00 AM
Great Idea! I love the message of this photo. 10

Very nice idea, executed very well. I think it would perhaps look better of there wasnt blood actually on the nail, because really there would be no blood there, it would just be oozing out the money. I think also that if you wanted a black background that it should actually be BLACK, not this dark grey colour. You just needed to take the brightness down a little bit in photoshop. Overall I gave this 7.

One dollar at a time....
