Great composition, really nice light on the quarter that creates a beautiful contrast with the old bill. I like the red/pinkish tones here. Wonderful!

Great stuff ... I just checked the exchange rates – a dollar-and-a quarter is worth 2 halfpennies ... :+(

@Ron: (from Ronnie 2¢) . . lol . . it sure is heading that way, Ron ! Crazy times.
another great shot, how have you lit the shot on the left?

@Rhys: (from Lilly)
That's just some early morning light. :)

Ya know, a quarter here is also known as "two bits." In high school we used to have a cheer that went: "two bits, four bits, six bits, a dollar, all for the Tarpons stand up and holler." The "Tarpons" was the name of our football team, and I'm not claiming that the cheer made any sense, or that I support mindless cheering.

oooo look like someone is tying their money down so it doesn't fly away or maybe so its a bit harder to fly out of your hand & get spent.

1 Apr 2008 4:23pm
nice shot. i like your style :)
1 Apr 2008 4:26pm
The lighting in both is amazing. The texture and detail just jump out with this lighting!
1 Apr 2008 4:27pm
complementary images, once again.. the color of the coins especially. wonderful lighting too!
1 Apr 2008 5:39pm
Excellent work! Very interesting and creative, I like it :)
1 Apr 2008 7:46pm
nice tones, color and light on both. i take it the dollar wasn't very strong in comparison to the pound in the 40s either? interesting L doesn't have any cents -- i heard they were decommissioning the penny.

@danthro: (from Ronnie 2¢) The exchange rate was around US$4.00 to the British Pound back in 1943 so, yes, an old ‘halfpenny’ was roughly equivalent to one US cent. Today, that same coin would be worth half that now that the exchange rate is only US$2.00 to the GBP.
Ron, you have this great capability of putting me a large smile on my face after a very long and exhausting day of work. Bravo ! I am your fan.

a wonderful "blast from the past" [excuse my corniness, I couldn't think of a better phrase]. :P

Both images well done. Makes alot of cents.
2 Apr 2008 3:33am
Excellent detail in each of your images. I find them pleasing!
2 Apr 2008 5:22am
If you haven't got a penny then a halfpenny will do. Such creative ideas come from that head of yours. Great one.
2 Apr 2008 5:58am
Nice concept and dialogue.
I like the lights too.
2 Apr 2008 6:18am

insightful, especially in the right image, but the composition of both is classic, another gem of a picture, im impressed
3 Apr 2008 12:25am
Very nice -- I love the look of old money that has been around, very evocative, and the old dictionary typeface takes you right back into the past.
3 Apr 2008 5:08am
Beautiful... Great shot of the coins!
3 Apr 2008 7:40am
3 Apr 2008 8:37am
Certainly different for a cents-less person like me.
3 Apr 2008 11:49am
This is history!
3 Apr 2008 7:47pm
Great contrast. They are both brilliant images, and they make true art when combined.
5 Apr 2008 12:50am
These go together so well... But isn't that always the case with everything the two of you do!
8 Apr 2008 12:43pm
Very nice contrast and correlation.
9 Apr 2008 7:12am
Irony here speaks louder than words.
as time rolls some things get lower in value, higher in cost.
