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

    hmmm... cool shot... what was the topic?

    nicely done
  • Kunal 8y

    beautiful shot .... it seems you ironed out the note before taking the shot :)
  • Mini Parameswaran 8y

    wow.... nice idea
    the coins in gandhiji's background stands out good...
    the white balance makes the shot look so green :D...
  • Matt Johnson 8y

    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.
  • Christian G. 8y

    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.
  • Christine Howard 8y

    After careful consideration (there are so many great pictures this week!) I'm voting this "BestOfWeek" (from Active Assignment Weekly group).
  • Alosh Bennett 8y

    @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 :-)
