Technically perfect. I'm not sure what your intent is - if it is to document this penny than you have accomplished your goal perfectly. For me, there is no creative interest.   Posted: 10/12/2020 10:27:31

Very nice and quite sharp. I like your enhanced version better because I think the color is more interesting. Nicely done.   Posted: 10/12/2020 10:37:52

Nice detail on the coins face, and a good exercise in critical focusing since f4 doesn't give you much room to work with. I like the side lighting but you might try toning down some of the highlites, esp on the edges. That dark shadow on the right side could be filled in with a white card, giving you a little more detail   Posted: 10/13/2020 17:09:58

A very sharp penny and one that is becoming rare. Good focus!   Posted: 10/13/2020 18:11:22

Nicely done. I agree with Bob on the side lighting. Might be more interesting to see the other side with the date on it?   Posted: 10/24/2020 21:19:50

Subject is flat and boring. Learning is a process.   Posted: 10/25/2020 12:11:12
