It's a really nice picture, but I don't really understand the selective colour in this one.

My favorite so far, lovely composition

What is the 'subject' of this photo? What is the most important part of the image? What do you want your viewer to see?

like the mid-point focus on the trigger, nice touch and the toning, bumped up. Good photo this, glad I took a second/third look.

Marvelous blunderbuss!!!!! Don't care for the desat - it draws my eye there and it isn't nearly and intersting.

B&W color tones are fabulous and dynamic on this compostion. The splash of red in the damask design on the jacket adds a bit of color and cements the idea that being a pirate is 'bloody' & violent business especially when the red is paired next to the period piece gun. Details and focus are great but I wish the barrel of the gun was in sharper focus for it is a touch soft. The main object that carries the idea of 'Pirate' is that period gun laying on worn wood planks, but the hat is present too - just not as much. I think the composition would have been even stronger had you pulled back from such a tight crop and included more of the captain's hat in the composition. Still, it is a great photo in the exceptional category that uses elements of pirate life to strongly convey the theme.

Kind of an odd composition but I love the slight bit of color at the top. Looks like a real pirates booty.

Beautifully composed still life. I'm not generally a fan of selective desat, but it does work here.
