A re-shoot of my original Balanced Budget.

This time I used my new SB-600 flash, off-camera to the left, obviously. Last attempt was using a halogen spotlight, that added a reddish tinge to everything. The 'noise' commented on my some is the texture of the paper...both shots where done on a sheet of plain white paper, surprising how the texture stands out when lighting it from an extreme angle.

I guess people liked the composition of the original better, even though the color was off and the sharpness was not as good. (original got 5.6858)

Nice lighting and reflection. There's quite a bit of grainy noise on the background, though. I thought it might be it's texture, but if that was the case, there would be no reflection. Curious to see what your shot settings were. I'm not sure if you could have done this differently to avoid that noise or not.

Very nice, I am going to increase your score from my first pass on this, but I would like a little less glare on the coin.

I like all the empty space. And the shadow. And the simplicity.
