You could have added some pennies (cents) for color contrast.

Too random, I think you could use one subject, one coin thats bigger than the rest maybe so that you have a particular subject that stands from the rest,

You must have a big pocket!! _ ;-) Nice shot, good lighting: enough for the shoot and not to have nasty reflections; good texture idea. The composition itself is rather monotonous, another element, say a bill placed strategically would have been interesting.

Some of the detail seems a bit blurry, I think making it sharper would have been an improvement

Cha-Ching! What is the texture of a bunch of coins?

More depth of field would have helped this. Also, the image needs something composition wise to break it up.

myself I don;t find money photo's all that interesting - something we see every daya and unless you have some clever lighting etc it's quite dull.

Wonderfully controlled lighting and exposure - not losing the brightness of the subject, yet without that glare so very common in these shots. Very slight drift of focus to the left of frame I think, just doesn't have quite the sparkling sharpness of the other.

must be hard to walk with all that in your pocket... ;-)

I would like to have seen some other object in this picture to make the composition more interesting.

For this kind of shot to work for me, it has to be well lit with super sharp focus. Not easy to do.

I just found it a bit too busy, my eye didn't know where to look. Better than the other coin ones though.

Good lighting....I feel like I want to reach out and scoop up a handfull.

A large set of objects can made a subject and compose a texture, like you do. I like the idea. Your light setup don´t help you to reveal the textures of the subject. To reveal textures the light must be in a hard angle setuped to do it. A common setup is a lateral 45 or 90 degrees. But top or down light works well too.
