I don't expect this to ribbon or even do well since I bet a bunch of people probably had the same idea, but I figured I need to start jumping into more challenges, even if it's 4 in the morning. I knew I could do this challenge pretty easily in a little makeshift studio, so I pulled together the motivation and actually DID IT. Feels good. Now bring the pain... :D

PP workflow: Open in LR2, Grayscale, Exposure, Contrast, Clarity, Red & Orange Levels, exported to PS, Saved for web.

All I'm really hoping for is a better score than my last challenge, since I'm happier with this image.

I haven't seen the second coin from the right yet - what is it? I love how the reflected light is making the eyes glow. That really caught my attention!

Excellent lighting and great details in the second coin from the top right. It is as if he is looking at me... Spooky!
