Tweaked in DPP, then in CS2 did a levels adjustment, hue sat and brightness/contrast. Did a selective colour adjustment to bump the blacks and drop the whites. USM pass, rotated, cropped, added a border. Reduced image size, another slight USM pass and saved for the web.

I like the thought and choice of colors. the reflection is nice, good sharp contrast. Somehow the coins and eggs seem small in the image...have you used all your pixels?

Great lighting and color. You've made everything look nice and sparkly. My only suggestion - and this is totally personal, maybe I'm nitpicking here - would be to crop a little of the right and left. Give the impression that there's a long line of gold spread out, instead of just a little pile. Just a thought... Nice image.

Where is everybody getting these golden eggs? They look great. I like the amount of light reflecting. Good choice of color for the background, makes an impact.
