I really liked this shot and really expected to see it in first place. You got my highest score of the competition.

I liked the way you did this, but I didn't like the slant so much, or the huge black space on the left. Overally, I liked it a lot. Nice job!

I think this is one of the best of the competition. I like the covered faces, just like criminals.

nice macro shot - wonderful colors. near perfect but the picture does not go all the way to conveying the message- that is- the love of money is the root of all evil- or "radix malorum est cupiditas." For this to be the theme- and be propoganda- you can't show money alone. You have exceeding photographic talent- this shot is 2 points from perfect- based only upon subject matter.

Wonderful image! I love how the faces are peeping out from behind the bills as if they had something to hide... 10

nice composition, good clear photo

My knowledge of world politics is probably letting me down hugely here but I am assuming that the image is exploring the belief that this leader, as featured on the bank notes of his country, is motivated by financial concerns over the more real concerns of his country. Is that even remotely what the message of the poster is? If I'm right then I can certainly imagine it being used as a poster by any political party in opposition to him. Composition isn't hugely strong - final image seems unbalanced by space at left but not at right.

this is an image that relies too heavily on the title to really make it jump out - the colors, textures, shapes are all interesting and the use of the face/eyes is powerful

Certainly a lot of WOW in this one. Fits the topic perfectly and the colors are beautiful. Composition is wonderful as well

At first glance, I'm reminded of the biblical allusion to money as the root of evil, but suddenly I notice how it's rolled to draw attention to the faces on the bills, so now think it's saying that politicians that are the root of all evils. Nice job.
