A Pound of Gold

By SH2006  
Playing around with some one pound coins today and my macro lens (which is rapidly becoming the flavour of the month). This photo is untouched apart from the enhanced golden hue. I really like the detail on the single coin and the off-centre angle. All comments welcome.

Excellent lighting and set-up. The colour is spot-on. Suberb stuff.

Your best macro shot to date. Well thought out, and well lit. Good DOF too as others have said. Well done.
