Money, Money, Money in HDR

In a follow up to my “Coins in HDR”…here is “Currency in HDR”!  I had to fix up my tone mapped HDR in Lightroom.   Photoshop will not allow any bank notes to be processed in the software.  They worry about counterfeiting.  Understandable.  So these bills from around the globe and offer a nice screensaver!   And yes, I did visit Jamaica many years ago!   Back then (early nineties) 1 USD = 23 Jamaican dollars…now 1 USD = 85 Jamaican dollars!  Wow!!  We are rich mon!!  I love the Canada bill…it has hockey on it!  When I think of countries around the globe, sometimes, “Its a Small World” ride in Disney comes to mind!  I love that ride!   Have fun spending your money wherever you are!!  Cheers!

    I’m very glad to see that you have your priorities set properly with an RBS note right on the top of the pile. FYI, when the English banks decided to stop issuing 1GBP notes, there was such an outcry north of the border that the 3 main Scottish banks decided to keep their own version of the note in circulation. I gather that at least one of those banks put the printing expenses through their marketing budget!

    When I first traveled back to the UK after moving to Texas, I went to my local bank to get some UK currency and was amazed to discover that they were offering different exchange rates for Scottish and English notes, the Scottish ones being slightly cheaper. Someone could have made a killing on arbitrage since they refer to exactly the same currency!
