it'd be cooler to see the bullet or the edge of the gun in focus

I don't understand the black smudge in the bottom right. If it is a bullet hole, i still dont understand

Good POV. I like you had controled more the DOF, to bring all in focus.

Very good idea... I would personally like to see the end of the barrell in focus... thus provoking the danger.

Great focus! Great take on the subject.

I think the inclusion of the "bullet" (which is what I assume the dot at bottom right was intended to be) was probably a bad idea. It destroys the sense of realism that this shot brings so strongly by pretending that it is an impossible action shot. That aside, this is a very good shot that definately uses point of view to add impact. Nice work.

should have focused on the barrel, and removed the spot from the lower right corner.

I get the distinct point of view of an observer to something that feels eerily tragic. As a viewer I'm left wondering where the bullet ultimately entered. The fact that this photo evokes such emotions and makes me want to look in the direction the gun was aimed tells me that it succeded.

Very nice shot. The DoF is great, and so is the toning and contrasts. 9

the focus is to far back on the gun

i think it would have made more sense for the end of the gun to be in focus. (what is that blurry thing on the bottom?)

I like the idea here....not so sure I like the blurry front of the gun....that is probably just a matter of opinion

hey man, watch where you point that thing. it's not a toy you know.

Would have preferred a more deep DOF and brighter photo so that you could see clearly all elements of the image, including the BB. Meets the challenge theme well.

Dd you actually fire the gun? If so, that is a great capture!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This focus would be better on the muzzle of the gun and bullet, but then since the bullet isn't really a bullet that part of it wouldn't have been as good. Still it's a good pic.

why not focus on the tip?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2004 03:16:05 PM
how did you do the bullet thing?
in my opinion you have the wrong end of the gun in focus. it needs more dof.

ahh!

Like the title, the message, and the idea of the shot. I would have kept the settings and focused on the end of the barrel, rather than the cylinder.

Hey, I love your Idea

Ah! Nice shot of the gun, good idea and well executed (no pun intended) :P
