    I can never seem to get good close-up shots of money with my camera, it just seems to blow it's brains! haha
    I do like what you've done there, sorry I can't really help focus wise seeing as I'm a bit of a beginner myself >.<

    The problem is shallow depth of field. You need to stop the lens down further. That will bring more of the depth of the image into acceptable focus. If this is a flash shot just stop the lens down. If it is continuous lighting then get a camera support so you can use longer shutter speeds to compensate for the smaller aperture.

    Camera Make: NIKON CORPORATION
    Camera Model: NIKON D40
    Image Date: 2007:01:05 22:31:34
    Flash Used: Yes (Manual, return light detected)
    Focal Length: 55.0mm
    Exposure Time: 11.500 s
    Aperture: f/16.0
    ISO equiv: 800
    Metering Mode: Matrix
    Exposure: aperture priority (semi-auto)

    I don't know if your lens goes any smaller than f16 but, if not, you've just not got enough depth of field to do what you want.

    For the OP, there are other ways to increase depth of field. Besides aperture you can adjust subject distance and lens focal length. If you used a long focal length, you can get closer with a shorter lens and improve depth of field. Or you can back away from the subject and crop the image. Your lens probably has f22 so that will help some.

    For The Traveler, how did you get the camera data from the JPEG posted?

    Do an Internet search for 'read EXIF' and download any of the free readers.
