I work at a grocery store and one day a customer gave me this penny. I switched with one of my regular ones and kept this one. I thought it was kinda special and tried to take a good picture of it. What do you think?

I like it. The colour tones are great and the heart of course makes the picture. Good work.

I'd like to see a small piece of paper taped to the back and something written inside the heart, just to add a bit more interest. Cool idea as is though.

I like it a lot. Maybe paint the penny behind the heart red? Just the heart part, not the whole penny.

I like it. I also like the vignette effect.

Really nice. This would make a great shot for some of those cute Korean notebooks I used to see all the time. Instant sell for that application.

Another candidate subject for microstock! I think I'd lessen the vignette/gradient on the left side. It's a little bit too pronounced for me. A little note could be an option (Chubby One's suggestion)... "A penny for your thoughts? You're already reading my mind."

Thanks for sharing your concept!

70-200L, 28-70L, 24-105L, 300L, 50, 10-17 fish, 2.0x TC
Image editing OK, encouraged, and expected. Thank you for helping me learn!
