    Took it a while ago but have had too many projects lately. It's straight out of the camera with the exception of being resized and adding a logo with a simple script in imagemajick.

    Great concept. Would have liked to see all the bullets in focus - front to back. I think that would improve it quite a bit.

    Or how about sharpening the receiver a little bit (it's rather soft), and then softening the bullet background to create one focal point?

    I thought of that as well, and it probably would do the trick, but I just would just love looking at all those nice, sharp bullets! ;)

    I know that. ;) It was just a play on words about the picture sharpness - but your comment was great. :supergrin:

    what caliber and bullets are those? It would be nicer with 223 bullets.

    I did something similar but with the Koran and Torah stack at an angle with both 223 and 7.62x39 scatter around to "signifiy the battle between the religious groups in the M.E "

    Waiting for the film to come back from the photolab.

    I'm waiting for my froend to get back and plan on doing the same but some how have the barrels/foreams of a AR15 and AK47 in the photo. Should be interesting ;)

    It's a 9mm Ar6450 and they were 125 grain Montana Gold bullets in the picture. Unfortunately I haven't had much time lately but did try again. I will play with depth of field and such when I get a chance but here is the latest (notice i've been busy loading so the scene has changed a bit).

    In order to get everything in focus I will need to close the aperture quite a bit and probably set the camera back across the room. Should be an interesting shot though.
