    Inspired by Placebo's song "Slave to the Wage". Any suggestions as to how i could make it look more "dark" in photoshop?

    Neat concept. To darken it, you can mess with curves and layers and burn out the background..possibly using different channels to turn it b/w would help with darkness as well.

    Interesting idea and nicely done. In my opinion though your photoshop goes a bit too far and obscures the actual idea, might just be my monitor but I cant really make out the dollar at all anymore so the concept itself is lost.

    Thanks Lafoto,

    and the PS is a lot clearer now the suns not shining on my screen. I should probably invest in a blind.

    I like the concept....... but i prefer the first version, the second IS too murky IMO..... it looks ok on screen but i think in print it wouldn't be clear enough..... so i'd go with the first..... and in the general gallery,.....where it would also get more views.
