    Money: Shot is great, well thought out and photographed. ;)
    Win: I find the scene a little too busy for my taste but bang on theme. ;)

    Cheers Alby :)

    For the Win shot I did sooooooooo many variences I had to just plump for one, I thought it had a bit of everything - not enough vodka for my taste but there you go :D

    Cheers Mark, very kind of you to say :)

    As for the decking, hell yes, certainly easier to line stuff up in a straight row, it played a part in my root shots too, very versatile :LOL:

    Cool... Cheers Darren (y)

    I'm glad I have nearly caught up, now it's time to try catch up on others threads

    Money - works well, nicely lit and good uniformity

    Win - I would prefer slightly darker to give atmos, and maybe a little smoke ;)

    Hi DK,

    Money, yep like this one, as already said good focus on the first coin and I do like the angle you've taken the shot from, leads the eye nicely into the shot.

    Win, great take on the theme DK, the hand showing the ace and Queen makes the shot for me. Even though I don't play poker (it is poker?) I'm drawn in and want to know what that person is thinking and what happens next. It's an excellent shot, i like it alot.

    Like your money shot :nuts:, great DOF on it and very sharp.
    Win has been done a few times, including by me. But your the first i think to do it in a hold 'em style shot, with two cards in the hand and 5 on the deck. Makes you think as well as you have to look for the win.

    The money shot is great simpl yet effective and the focus is spot on.

    As for the win shot another good image. I agree that adding some smoke would definitely give it the grimy poker room feel. Can't believe I didn't even think about this theme I used work as a croupier dealing Texas night after night :banghead:

    Hi Carol :D

    Thank You...

    Yes it is poker 'Texas Hold'em'... Thanks for the nice comment again :)

    Cheers Gareth :)

    Thanks again :)

    I did think when I took it that there was bound to be a few poker shots, but I was sooo far behind, i thought fnck it :LOL:

    Cheers Gramps (y)

    Cheers Phil (y)

    lol... aint that typical :D

    If I do ever get spare time, I would like to re-shoot with smoke (would use a joss stick to give a good shape)

    Thanks Michael :)

    I don't think you missed it, I just took the bugger too late :D

    Apologies Dean, not looked in for a while.
    I like your money image, a lot of patience shown there setting it up. Good choice of point of focus and dof. Bang on theme too (y)

    I like the win image too, it tells a story in itself, there is plenty to look at, keeping the viewers interest in looking around it.

    I too have been posting a bit late, things have a habit of getting in the way of photography. Iain

    Money - Great shot. I like how the colour of the surface compliments the coins.

    Win - I like this one. It's pretty comprehensive including the full game in there.

    'Money' - Love the cascading coin effect and the angle. Nice angle, Dof, colours and focus, perfect for me.

    'Win' - very nice image and outstanding colours. Great capture !

    Good morning DK :)

    Money - so bloomin' what it's late.....well worth waiting for. Bang on theme, dof spot on.

    Win - as someone else has pointed out maybe a little too busy for me too. Still a good shot though and again spot on with the theme. I'd be tempted to crop just above the glass though.

    Well... yet again trying to catch up with my 52, was hoping for good weather, but in the end took advantage of it

    I have left the bonnet line in the pic to help define the object, I think it looked a bit none descriptive without it

    Hi Dk, great shot that and I like the black and white which works well. It would be fine without the bonnet line in.

    I like the idea here and the execution is good too, but I would like more tonal range - perhaps up the blacks and contrast a little?

    Good work and an interesting subject choice here Dean. The composition choice is good too, I think it would work equally as well without the bonnet line in, gives the viewer something to work out :)
    Keep at it, I hope you can find some down time for photography! Work is over-rated ;) Iain

    Very shiny, good use of the bad weather. Although I agree with Phil, it seems a little grey for me:thinking:

    A good interpretation of the theme and not being shy of the weather. A good mono.

    Right... how do I put this, that's the colour of my car It's a Colour Pic :cautious:

    Cheers Michael :)

    I am uploading an edit as I type :geek:

    Hi Phil, thanks for the positive comment :)

    The upload I am doing has a tad more contrast as well as being cropped to remove the bonnet line and hedge top left :)

    Hey Iain :)

    I am hoping to catch up today, but with the weather being poor here I won't be going for my Togging walk I try to do on a Sunday - Flipping British weather :bat:

    But my Nephew is coming around for a couple of hours, so Baby Pic practice again :help:

    I'm playing catch up this week due to not coming up with anything I was happy with for Shiny and won't post the one I have come up with last night 'til I've gone through everyone elses.

    Shiny, I like the black and white one personally, definitely needed a bit more contrast so glad you edited the original version

    The first attempt at this was interesting and worth a go - not sure it said shiny though, the re-edit is better and I see the shiny elements ;)
