Interesting vision of money... Not sure I understand fully, but I like it anyway. The two photos in the middle are excellent on their own. The montage is fine; good idea not to have all the pictures the same size. Well done!

incredible montage. neat, clean yet saucey! the rotten apple sure gave an ultimate contrast of money!

anyway, how about sending me over the 50 euro!

keep it up!

I like your idea. Thanks

Interesting way of presenting money. I wonder why the rotten apple...maybe you are trying to say that money can shrivel away. Not sure. Nice presentation of the images in different sizes.

sjoerd, to be truthful, i think this shot would have been even better if either one of those four images were chosen, in fact i wouldn't mind seeing each one individually here...none the less you've decided to merge them, so i'll let it go...

a good composition and montage

Money makes the world go round.
Draait soepel want het is het slijk der aarde.
Als je appels onder de perenboom zoekt zul je ze niet vinden.
Het zijn niet de minste appels waar mens en wesp aan vreet.
Deze appel is na een hap blijven liggen dan kwam hij zeker niet boven uit de boom daar hangen de beste. Moet ik nu beter appels voor geld kiezen?
Je merkt het al alom verwarring. Het maakt iets los en dat is goed als een foto dat kan.
Ook vertwijfeling over de balans tussen schoonheid en zeggingkracht wat moet prevaleren?
Het beeld natuurlijk het is een foto. Mooie beelden dat zondermeer.

Very good work, Sjoerd!
I like this montage.
Well done

A spoiled temptation? Great combination of the picture! I love the idea and the original result!

SHowing in a clever way!
Asssociation of money as a result of the sin.. I enjoy that symbolic. Make an apple turning in that way! Wonderfull job!

good composition!
good work!

I dont understand it fully either (I can only relate it to something rotten and to sex as well :) but the whole thing as an image is attractive. I specially like the dominant white tone of the overall photo.

Really interesting collage about money... excellent quality of pics (I really like colours here).
Thanks for share,

Beautiful compo, creative, it works well.



reminds me of Eva in the Garden of Eden...Was this your idea? Tell me more about it,please. I like this shot very much :)

Rotten fruit and money strategically-placed to cover a woman's pussy....hmmmm. Not sure I'm feelin' the love here. Are you trying to say women are expendable just like money? Are you saying women/their sexuality are like rotten fruit? Whether you intended it or not I think the inclusion of the nude woman with the money on her smells fishy to me.

I indeed like the symbolism of the original sin of Eva and Adam! If Eva had not tasten the apple, maybe we would now live in a world where money would not be necessary ..(the bible would say) - hehe .Anyway, the overall result is very good!
