Wow, great capture, Matt!!! Really excellent! I LOVE that you've captured the coin as a still object, though perhaps a twist in the dimension of its travel might be more convincing of its motion. Not sure how you set that one up, though. The high contrast is wonderful, and really works with the subject!

I love this image; I do wonder that if you had shown more space on the left hand side you it would be even stronger. ( I have tried to do this for you as an idea have a look in my portfolio)

like the b&w, cut off coin and hand blend to made an interesting composition, shadow and light play well against each other. Bright spots on far right of hand may be a bit too bright as my eye is drawn to this unimportant part of your shot because of the light. Border works well. One of my favorites this challenge

Good use of lighting, negative space... I even like the fact that the quarter is not entirely there.

The composition and lighting are very powerful in enhancing the subject matter. They give the image a sense of importance as though the decision at hand is quite compelling.

Not exactly original, but absolutely outstanding light quality, focus and composition. One of my ribbon picks. *sniff, sniff* ...smells like smokeditor. (9)

Good idea. Very good use of B&W. Nice composition. It lacks the motion, though. Looks too muck like a set up. Good luck.

I think if the coin had the same shadowing as the hand it would have looked better to me.

Nice macro on the coin. Border adds nicely to the photo w/o distracting.

Challenge link: strong, but predictable.

Image critique: a nice attempt at creative lighting and unusual composition. Just a bit unengaging really.

Out of challenge interest: not much.

Lots of coin flipping shots in this challenge, but this one is really exceptional. Very nice job.

Yet another flipped coin, but this photo has the edge of the very classy lighting. Awesome contrast between the VERY underexposed areas (by design, I know) and the great detail in the lit parts.
