    I would have the first bullet in focus rather than the middle one. But the lighting looks good.

    To my thoughts the front out of focus, to dark, not much detail bullet, takes away from the rest of the shot, it that it seems distracting from the focal point.

    I think it's very catchy subject matter....over all, I think it's facinating. Looking at it I immediately thought of Charlton Heston (NRA guru). I think the lighting is good....even how the bullets are set up is good. BUT...and I'm really too new to know what I'm talking about..but I agree that the foreground bullet needs to be in focus. Not saying that the background ones shouldn't be. But the way they're set up, that's where the focal point is. I found that it was very distracting. That bullet is so profound that you almost don't look at the rest of it, and the eye catches the blur quickly. Otherwise I find it to be a really facinating shot.

    The second photograph looks like a pic you would see on ebay.

    The only thing I moght say is in the second I don't know about having a pistol and the pistol magazine and then right next to it have the rifle magazine. I understant the barrel that is coming in is probably the one the othe clip is for but you need to show more of the gun or take out the ammo.

    THOSE ARE NOT BULLETS!!!!

    They are "cartridges".;)

    I also think the first CARTRIDGE being out of focus is distracting. Also it would be nicer if the brass was clean and shiny, IMO.
