&lt;3 lina
that's my mother's dog. its not a cat. its. a. dog. you should wear your glasses when you vote.
i actually hate my mother's dog, and i dont like dogs in general.
i dont play quake, i play counter-strike (www.teamrenegade.com).
it's a gamo cadet delta, not an rws. break action. 525 fps.
aiming a safed and unloaded airgun at a dog is not cruel; pulling the trigger when its unsafed and loaded is cruel.. especially since i have fine tip ammo. yallz priorities be mixed like motherfuckers

thanks for lots of other good points about the shot. except the lighting, as i liked it like that.

and oh hey look, i fucking got swashbuckler to comment like a normal human being this time !

A game?
05/26/2002 06:40:00 AM
Not really a sport if your target's just sitting there, funny though.
05/26/2002 01:21:00 AM
Is that a dog? I wish he was a little sharper. It's a very intersting picture, though.
05/25/2002 08:24:00 PM
Doesn't look like you need even a tranquilizer dart...
05/25/2002 07:46:00 PM
Very grainy and it seems tilted to the left. I don't like the subject
05/25/2002 08:20:00 AM
A little dark and disturbing, but OK.
05/24/2002 10:12:00 PM
The cat is out of focus .... not a cat lover? or do you love them TOO much?
05/24/2002 08:11:00 PM
I will be surprised if this one is very popular with the voters. Besides the controversial subject, the exposure is in need of help. I tried to be constructive but I am changing my mind.
05/24/2002 05:01:00 PM
Love it! Great job!
05/24/2002 12:52:00 PM
I like the angle of this picture, but overall it is too dark and grainy and not much focus. I also find the setup ironic, since many hunters I
hear about wait until the deer come up to their man-made feeding grounds to shoot them. Great sport and challenging, too!
05/23/2002 08:46:00 PM
you fag.
05/23/2002 08:27:00 PM
Sadistic...I love this....lol.
05/23/2002 12:01:00 PM
Sick little boy
05/23/2002 09:54:00 AM
Very funny, but I really dislike like the lighting. The orange cast is unappealing. I like that you're going from a dark room, it gives a sense that you're really hunting (ie- sneaking up on the dog). BUT-- the orange light bleeds into the dark room and makes it a bit grainy. With brighter light in the room with the dog, and a white balance fix, I think the image could've been better.
05/23/2002 05:02:00 AM
Ok, I DON'T like the indication of this photo, but I have to admit, good job (photographically!)
05/22/2002 10:41:00 PM
Interesting colors, I would have to say that you were a little to reliant on your title to carry your shot. Your subject is too far back to be the focus of your picture, there is too much going on here to really be able to draw my attention to the animals in the background
05/22/2002 07:09:00 PM
I'd rather play other games
05/22/2002 06:54:00 PM
poor doggie.
05/22/2002 10:24:00 AM
Bit too dark and far away to really see what's going on here. What's the thing in the foreground? A shotgun??
05/22/2002 08:32:00 AM
Oh, please.
05/22/2002 02:32:00 AM
lighting is a bit off, and you can't really identify the gun clearly enough. Looking directly down the barrel and getting rid of the door might have made it better
05/22/2002 12:43:00 AM
Eeek! That better be a water pistol!
05/21/2002 04:11:00 PM
Scary... but cool
05/21/2002 02:40:00 PM
That's mean, but I won't hold it against you. Its an interesting shot down the barrel of the gun. I think it might have been a little better if you were zoomed in on the dog a little more.
05/21/2002 11:05:00 AM
You make me laugh. Perhaps of a little more indirect lighting on the rifle would enhance the photo. The foreground is terribly dark.
05/21/2002 10:17:00 AM
Is that a cat's paw holding the rifle? A bit noisy from underexposure, but what can you do in the dark? Maybe a little more care in composition (dog on white something looks kind of like two dogs, something at base of railing interferes with the barrel), but I like the tilt.
05/21/2002 08:23:00 AM
I think you play a little too much Quake there...
05/21/2002 06:43:00 AM
Just a little too macabre for my tastes.
05/20/2002 11:47:00 PM
Is that a gun? I really don't get it even with the title.
05/20/2002 11:03:00 PM
Very creative idea, looks very much like a video game. Too bad the lighting wasn't very good.
05/20/2002 08:42:00 PM
that's some good eat'n
05/20/2002 07:22:00 PM
While I am not a cat lover, poor ( but original) choice of subjects IMHO. Besides, the target is sleeping, not on the prowl.
05/20/2002 06:40:00 PM
05/20/2002 03:53:00 PM
I was just about to give you a 2 when I saw the front sight. Nice gun-RWS?
05/20/2002 01:59:00 PM
haha, insaine
05/20/2002 01:56:00 PM
Now there's a new twist to games . . . clever thought! A straight shot w/out quite as much graininess and zoomed in a little more on the subject would've got better ratings from me.
05/20/2002 12:27:00 PM
Very cute dog. I wish you would have made the subject of your picture a little more prevelent in the picture. By the way.......you are a sick puppy yourself....but I suspect you knew that.......lol
05/20/2002 10:45:00 AM
This was a cute idea. I'm only sorry I can't see it a little better. [object to the right?]
Still a fun idea.
05/20/2002 10:31:00 AM
05/20/2002 09:56:00 AM
The dog doesn't even know that the game has started.
05/20/2002 08:18:00 AM
Someone plays a bit too much Quake :)
05/20/2002 07:24:00 AM
I'm not familiar with this game... The quality of the photo also makes it a bit difficult to determine that this is a gun in this photo....
05/20/2002 01:09:00 AM
Oooooooh... a bit touchy. Are you sure the subject matter is tasteful?
