The Eyes of Abraham

Day 29 - OK this is strange but I love how it turned out. I started out trying to find a creative way to take a picture of the money I won at the casino last night and here is what I ended up with.

This is a five dollar bill, held up backwards to a 500 watt light. I was holding the bill with one hand and the camera with the other so it took several trys to get it semi sharp. And of course it is heavily post processed.

And I didn't actually win at the casino but I went with $200 and came back with $190 so that was close enough :)

  1. Yes, I agree. It's really neat. Coming home with most of your money is pretty neat too. :) Nita

  3. I think this is fantastic... a really nice composition! I played around with a few macro shots on the $5 bill today, and I will be taking a few more for my PAD in a few days (maybe tomorrow!)

  4. Cool! I thought it was a double exposure, or two photos superimposed. Nice job, and nice post processing as well. I will have to experiment with this technique...
