I know the use of flash doesn't help (well, it does, I tried a couple without) but I don't possess decent lights, and I have just about run out of time.I haven't done much to this.Unsharp mask, contrast/brightness taken down a bit, tiny amount cropped off top, resize, save to web.

Straight flush! Where's the risk! Nice one...

Ouch - those cards are badly exposed. If you could see another player it might also have had more effect. Good idea though. Is that Australian dollars?

I like the concept, it would help if the lighting were more dramatic.

Why didn't you go Ace high for a Royal Flush? A good idea but the lighting seems a little harsh to me.

The theme is so well reflected in this picture. Flash and composition be a bit improved.

Good idea, but the cards (which are the main focus of this picture) are over-exposed to the point of just being blown out. Also, for me the wood table top was a little distracting. I would maybe have liked to seen this on a black background or maybe a green felt poker type table.
