    I love it! Great title. You obviously put alot of thought into setting this one up. Got me thinking up ideas of my own; thanks!

This is perfection. You should let the banking industry fight over it for their next ad campaign. I am curious - how did you do it? (if you don't mind sharing).

Thanks for the generous feedback all, your very kind.

I started off by dangling the coins with fine thread but this proved very tricky as the coins would get in the way of each others thread.

I eventually decided to just take images of the pound coin and photoshop them in.

Hi Darren. I am in awe of this image. You did a flawless job with PS on this. You really get the feeling of the coins dropping. Congratulations on a very fine finialist.
