Taken in the twilight in Iceland, with the largest "skyskraper" in the background. Suitcase filled with 100 dollar bills, model instructed to be dead still in the freezing winter breeze. Lights blinked on car while camera is open and flash shot at dollar bills to try to freeze the motion.

Cropped, WB adjusted, sharpened.

She'd have fewer worries if she put her money in a bank rather than running around downtown with a briefcase overfilled with $100 bills. That's just asking for trouble! :D

Fun shot, love the lighting/background colors. Her right foot being cut off is a minor distraction for me.

too contrived looking. you'd be an idiot to let your cash hang out of a breifcase, much less in such a prepositioned fashion. i like the lighting though

Very nicely exposed night shot. She must be in a rush if she's leaving all those $100 bills hangin' half way out the case. Good work.
