    Yeah - it's a dark coin and my lighting was rubbish - I thought the Pop Art filter improved it :D

    Nice @ominus1! Might a suggest something quite easy, which may improve focus in the photo on your coin? And stand that lifts the coin from the floor/background, upwards. Im not a photographer and I don't know why, but with my camera, the focus and sharpness are on the coin, which gets me a better result on the photo. I use the lego's of my daughter to build a small tower, on which I place the coin (shown before):
    Very professional.... NOT! But it works for me :)

    Love it. Looks just as solid as Rundetårn in Copenhagen. :)

    I too use Danish technology to raise my coins. I think I need a better camera though - my current one gives me no control over where it focuses. I’m contemplating going down the DSLR route if I can find a cheap used one...

    ..my 'new & improved' cam is only one step up from my 'old' one...it's a 1100 canon powershot($32.00)...and i still do the pics my Missouri way...the pics may be a lil out of focus(these are the very 1st pics), but compared to pics with my old one, i think they are 100% better. i'll get more choosy as i go :) picture taking my way 001.JPG triumphal 001.JPG

    Nice one, ominus1! I'd like to land an example someday.

    All I have is a quinarius with centering and other issues. This is one of my favorite depictions of Victoria - she looks like she's having a good time dancing (walking? I think not!) around the ol' omphalos:
