So glad I had a chance to redo this! Even though there wasn't much to work with and it prolly won't score all that well....but I would have liked it to look a little more like this one ...LOL :)
The first shot is almost my First digital photo. And also I was very very new to using the computer at that time. I was awfully sick and I was tired of laying in bed waiting to get better, so I decided to log on line and find a photo contest, so I could put my new Kodak to use. Low and behold I found out my sister ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31_F.gif', '/') + 1) .

Dp has pretty much been a journal of my work from the get-go.

This was one of my top picks and one of my few 10's. I think this was really well done, great lighting and crop. Huge improvement and should of been a solid 6. Decent score but I would have pegged it as a top 20 at least. Great work here.

even tho the original was for a "bad" challenge, this is a good re-do. no date stamp (lol), looks good in color, no flash, and i like the focus on the coins.

I wonder if this will beat the original 3.7870? Hard to decide which one I like better ;)

(Love the colours and the way the blurry bottle focuses attention on the center of the picture)

I will have to say this is a dramatic improvement, not only in size but clarity, lighting and tonal value...very well done...an excellent tribute to ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' liberty

Beautiful interpretation of the original. I think it definitely works better in color.
