    I like the series... mostly the first shot in the first series (top left). My only critique is that I think I'd like it more if it had a more serious tone to it. I'm also not overly nuts about the background but it's not bad.

    Overall I really like the idea though.

    I just don't like Glocks. :)

    Seriously though, I think the first set does more for me. I like the crazy look you have on your face in the first shot.

    Well, what are you trying to say? The first one has a more edgy feel of I don't give a damn what you think with the image of the gun pointed in the viewer's face, and the second one has a "I'm tough but I'm also friendly" kind of feel to it - the smile, the caress, and the kiss in the 3 frames respectively.

    I like the first set, but overall I think a more serious tone would work better. The caress & kiss are too whimsical for the subject in my opionion.

    I like the processing you did as well.

    I think they are great. It kind of tells people just who the hell you are, doesn't it? I also like the overall tone(color) of the photos.

    BTW, when can we expect your next CD Mr. Nugent???? :lol:
