My first impression of this is that it would fit the cliche challenge just as well. A macro of coins - good practice for a photographer, but not all that interesting usually (especially when it's a straight on shot of side-by-side coins).
Technically. Focus is good. Lighting seems a bit harsh - reflective surfaces need a lot of diffused light. Coloring is good.
I think it's a little weird to have the sides cropped like they are w/ room above and below.
I like the new dollar coins. I wish they'd just take the dollars out of circulation so we'd be forced to use them. The banks don't even have them when I ask.
Overall, decent shot that could use better lighting. Good score - esp for a subject without a lot of emotional pull. It does fit the challenge and is fairly good quality-wise tho.

nice glow on these.

Nice, but a bit flat. You lit these coins really nicely to show the designs on them beautifully, but I don't respond well to photos that seem to be very two dimensional.

Good focus. Strong on topic. The lighting is a bit harsh on the right coin. 6 Lisa

nice shot but a little to much light. a diffuser might have softened it up a bit.

You forgot one thing, the quarter. Because they are all mistaken for a quarter so many times. This is great, clear, well photographed, maybe a tad tight on the crop - should have as much space on the outside as between the two coins. But that doesn't hurt it. Just a thought. Great photo.

Nice sharp crisp pic. Wondering about the light ring around the outside of the Sacajawea dollar. - Inspzil
