High quality shot. Really cool lighting. I like the slant - it creates an illusion all on its own b/c the penny isn't rolling ;oP Nice reflection. What would u think of putting a shoe in the pic? Just a thought. ~indi

Not quite a 10 but a good strong 9. Like the way the light brings out the writing and shows the way from the left side of the shot to spotlight the penny. Good corpping.

Very nicely done. The blurred reflection on the wood floor is a nice effect for composition.

simple, yet powerful. The glare of light off the penny along with the dark background makes the picture. Also, good idea to have the penny standing upright instead of laying flat - that adds a little twist to it and makes the picture more interesting.

Good DOF and focus. Lighting and woodgrain of the table are very nicely done.

Excelent picture, but the sloping feel to the background is distracting
