I am really please with the way this turned out, it is pretty much as I imagined it. The only thing I would change is to not tie the bill but rather use tape on the back so there is no black line. Iím not sure how it will do, but I think itís cool.

Uh! Did you loose a dollar for this shot? Nice shot though.

hope you did not have to sacrifice more than one one-dollar bill (it surely looks real) for the shot.
I would have appreciated your attention to details, if you had made sure to hide the matchstick. overall, i like this.

This looks real, but I hope it isn't because I believe that's illegal, and I don't mean at DPC. With the assumption it's not a real dollar, very nicely done! I like the flame and the smoke pattern.

Everyone else entered photographs depicting how "scarce" money is, and here you are, burning it! ;D Excellent, nicely set-up photo - I hope you didn't have to burn through too much cash to get this! :)

I like the idea of this one, but I can't help but think of a traffic cone when I see it. I think that a different angle would benefit this shot, or adding different lines (tilt the dollar so that it is a little more visually engaging than just straight up and down). Also, I think the black band is a little distracting, I would have liked some tape in the back to keep it rolled up so we couldn't see it.
