    This came out better than I really expected, but the gold of the quarters (US 25 cent coins are not gold) was unexpected.

    No PP on this one at all:

    I suspect white balance... and I'll play with it a little to see if that's the culprit.

    But I liked the result, actually.

    Your comments are encouraged.

    Those gold quarters might be worth a little more than $.25!

    Yes, probably white balance or a color cast. I kind of like the effect though. It's more dramatic than the ordinary colors.

    I realized the culprit... flash reflection from a yellow Ronson lighter fuel bottle.

    Unintended, but did create a rather interesting effect.
