Connor, you leave terrific comments and you take very, very good pictures, and you're only 13?! OMG...

Not that I think you need further inspiration, but who knows, maybe you'll turn into another ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Joey Lawrence. Check out his portfolio!


PS What, nobody has faved this?! That's an outrage! Better change that! :-)

Good idea
12/14/2008 12:01:51 PM
great idea and very good image
12/13/2008 08:49:11 PM
Oh yes it sure does feel like that, lol! I like the background colour and texture, complements the image well, and I wouldn't mind a few of those £20s if you don't mind either! Would be funny to know if you went to the bank to draw all that cash out just for the picture :-)

great concept, well done
12/13/2008 12:21:48 AM
Would have been a 10 if not for that white speck in the bottom left. As is: 9
12/12/2008 11:01:57 AM
haha Isn't that the truth? :) Great idea. My only complaint is the lighting. Not enough on the bottom, I think.
12/11/2008 09:47:54 PM
This is very creative and so true! Great job!
12/11/2008 03:57:04 PM
Excellent interpretation with a twist on the economy good one
12/11/2008 02:10:43 AM
Your lighting is good, although it would be nice for the highlight to be behind your subject. Right now, I look at your subject, but my eyes are drawn away to the bright spot on the top right.
12/11/2008 01:22:14 AM
Sad but true. Clever idea
12/10/2008 02:40:29 PM
Like the idea. The light on the background is a bit too harsh but still a good shot
12/10/2008 01:20:13 PM
I wasn't sure that humor could be found in this recession / depression that we are experiencing, but you've found it. I like it. Very funny....10
12/10/2008 08:28:30 AM
Very clever!
12/10/2008 08:03:37 AM
I really like the concept.

The hotspot on the background tries to drag my eye away from the subject though.
12/10/2008 02:31:12 AM
Great concept shot.
