the irony

    Money so they say
    Is the root of all evil today
    But if you ask for a rise it's no surprise
    that they're giving none away

    ~Pink Floyd

    Taken for Active Assignment Weekly - Musictures

    What it took-
    Spreading out a few coins and notes
    Macro mode
    White balance set to "Cloudy" for the color
    Small touchup of hue, saturation and level.

    The song is Money by Pink Floyd

      beautiful shot .... it seems you ironed out the note before taking the shot :)

      wow.... nice idea
      the coins in gandhiji's background stands out good...
      the white balance makes the shot look so green :D...

      Great depth of field and focus on the main subject. Also good choice of song for the photo! I might have put a couple coins in the foreground to lead the eye through the photo along the blurred coins. But maybe you tried that and it didn't work out! Great shot!

      Great song/image pairing... I like the song, too. Nice shot and focus - I like the DOF fine, as fisheye said, I love the focus on Gandhi's eyes.

      A nice one. I like that Ghandi is in focus. Therefore the eye has a point to rest on. Apart from that due to the macro styl the surface looks bent which is very nice here. Well done.

      Great shot, Alosh! I too really like the focus on Gandhi, and I definitely appreciate the irony. Your careful balancing of color is also just lovely.

      After careful consideration (there are so many great pictures this week!) I'm voting this "BestOfWeek" (from Active Assignment Weekly group).

      @anumode, topic is music + picture = musicture
      @fisheye, the coins are us, singapore and indian
      @kunal, not this time :-) it's fresh out of the atm
      @wildlocks and xinegrrl, theres a small color offset on my laptop screen, i think :-(. i didnt mean it to be so green. looks yellow with a touch of green on mine.
      @matt, mostly it was hiding the image of gandhi, but now i think i should have given it more tries :-)

      thanks for the comments and the vote :-)
