great shot... I don'tcare what the others say.. the smile makes the shot great.. it makes the gunman look much more like he stepped out of deliverence...

I don't normally like gun photos, but this one is well done, well acted, and I love the background and sepia tone. May be a winner!

Great shot. Great tone. Very Unusual Viewpoint. I love it!

It is somehow disturbing and scary, positions the viewer in a really unusual point of wive, unless it is a robber. Why the smile? I did change the comment - I donít want to generalize, itís not fair. From artistic point of view it is a good composition and close by effect. (8)

I like the fact that if you took the gunman on the grassy knoll out of the frame it could have been entered for any 'arty' challenge. I hope you lived to submit this.

I like the colouring of this shot, the bright white cloud at the side of the man in the picture looks out of place.

This is a great shot. The old house, the models shirt, and the colouring of the photo give it a unique quality. Nice depth also.

If he wasn't smiling it would be a much more effective image. Still a nice shot.

Well composed. The sepia tone seems a bit too reddish and it seems a bit blurry.
05/26/2004 01:11:20 AM
Everything about this image you did is very funny. Hope that is intentional.

Great perspective (the gun almost comes out of my screen), interesting subjects and good composition. The look on the guy's face is so cool and his posture makes it look movielike-realistic if you know what I mean.
Also like the toning, makes it look classic. 9

I really like this one. Sepia is a little strong (orange) for my taste but the photo has everything. 10

I can hear the dueling banjos in the background of this one. Nice use of sepia.

Redneck Vote! 10 Yeee Hawwww

I all seriousness, I really like this photo. I love the crazy look on his face. I'm sure this will get some low votes because there is a big bad gun in the photo, but I think it's amazing.

Whoa, I'm getting Deliverence flashbacks ;)
Nice shot (no pun intended) the color works well and the whole picture is very interesting to look at. Nice work!
