Filthy lucre

I guess you might call this the money shot.  I used an on-camera flash bounced off the ceiling with the smallest possible aperture to preserve the greatest amount of detail.  Happily, it allowed a ton of detail on all of the coins, and a large depth of field, so all of the coins are in focus.  Contrast that to yesterday's photo with a low aperture which caused the focal zone to be measured in millimeters.  It's amazing what a little light can do!
