I was thinking of taking a picture of today's paper, but that wasn't a very exciting picture. My husband came up with the idea of the 'winning' lottery ticket. He went and bought a new ticket with yesterday's winning numbers...I conveniently cut that date out of the picture. *I* wanted a ticket with ONLY yesterday's winning numbers on it, but alas, he bought a ticket with other numbers also. I decided to just make it work.

I applied the usual during post-processing: levels, USM, color saturation, etc - nothing exciting. I used a 2 second exposure while I moved the 'PAID' stamp away from the mortgage statement.

Sonya - I like this. Really clever interpretation of the challenge. I think the motion blur adds an extra something to the shot too.

Nice contrast, lighting, color and composition. This spells it all out for you. I would think about titleing this one "F-you money"

Cool image, but the double exposure isn't necessary. The stamp alone would have conveyed the message without
