Greetings from the critique club:

First off your image is too small I can't tell what I'm really looking at the I'm aware it's a tray full of coins but coins themselves are rather fuzzy. They appear to be dimes i can't tell fro sure. I see this was taken in scotland so I can assume not. I like the light gradation but I think your image would have more wow impact it was cropped just to contain the coins and the light grad and not the tray. It would look like money into infinity. (a really nice concept don't you think ;)) The little chips thrown in?? were they random and if not it's not clear what their color or position indicates. when I first looked at them all in a row like that I thought they were meant to indicate the 3 ribbons but they're not in the right order or the right colors for that so... Less distracting if they were removed, or placed to look more random.

Good luck and keep shooting

PS they have casinos in scotland? and they let you take pictures?

With a larger view and in focus this could be a good picture. I like the comp.

Very small image...this could have been great had the image been larger and more detailed

Coins and money always make good subjects for still life photography. This image is very small and has poor focus. If your camera has macro capability then a closeup would work better and you should make the image closer to the 640 pixel size allowed. You would also want to try lighting from different angles to add interest to the image.

Tokens! Lots of tokens! Or are they actuall quarters? hard to tell. The shot is rather small and hard to see exactly what effect you were going for here. I can see the chute at the bottom and how they are barely hanging on the edge but it really just doesn't capture my attention or make me anticipate the falling of the coins. The lighting isn't bad but I'm wondering if this shot might work better as a portrait shape instead of a landscape shape. A 4

A larger shot with the coins more in focus would have been better in my eyes. Otherwise a nice shot.
