    the album is called "dirty money". i liked the way this one turned out. there were NO outlets in the place so couldnt use my AB. i had to do everything with only 1 580exii. i used a 17-40 and 5d.

    i guess I dont like his pose/ positioning, it looks awkward and uncomfortable to me.

    lighting looks good though.

    Great shot.

    Concept is kinda unoriginal though.

    Lighting on his face is too hard and from the wrong angle. I hate the dryer door going through his head. His medallion gets lost in his jacket. The way he's holding the money is just awful. I would clone out the "Stack Dryer" logo.

    I do like the location and love the b+w conversion, but there are some serious distractions and lighting micsteaks. :hs:

    *also, the lack of details in his eyes is a big negative for me.

    it would have been cool if you had framed his head in one of the circular doors. but cool shot nonetheless.

    Looks like he's expecting twins :p

    Not bad for just a 580ex though.

    You could of done a lot better, at least give more light to the eyes and get battery pack for the AB.

    I think it looks good other than you can't see what his chain says. Oh, and is that real money or what?

    the rubber band around the money makes it look like he's some liquor store owner.
