Day 20 - Ghost Change

Did some more playing with my macro and the Photo Soft Box Pro this evening. We have a little coin bowl we keep in the cupboard for when change is needed. I decided to take it out and see what I could get. The photo above is the result of setting the exposure time to 6 seconds and then throwing more coins into the container after about 2 seconds. The transparent coins are the ones that were thrown in after wards. I like playing with exposure this way and am always looking for new ways to do so. I'm open to suggestions if you have any.
Speaking of suggestions, thanks to all of you who gave me feedback on my signature. I have decided to change it but haven't time to really play with it. Hopefully, I'll get to that this weekend. For now I'm such using text on an overlay layer.

This is such a cool idea! I may have to try this with some Valentine's candy - maybe Sweethearts or something! Thanks for sharing your creativity!
