    Jacketed M-16 round I found stuck in my old gear. Thought it was kind of cool so I put the 50mm on some extension tubes (the two small ones..)

    Had to do the aperture trick. A few are f/9 and a few are f/16 - I forget which ones.

    Thanks. For editing I masked off the background and darkened it and/or reduced contrast (most heavily in #2). #1 has a black and white layer over it at about %40 to desaturate the colors a bit. Other than that they're about how they looked SOOC.

    Yes. CS4. My favorite plugin ever is Viveza by Nik Software. Lets you edit by control points and makes masks for you.. so it's great for those who are unskilled or just lazy (like me).

    Home-made lightbox. Kinda crude but I enjoy using it. Had a light on at either side.

    Here's an old picture of it.

    One of my favorite rounds. SS109 62gr FMJ-AP :D

    Like pic #2, but maybe a little more DOF to better show some of the aging paint....??

    I like the detail in the last one, but all are good. I tried experimenting with a lightbox too. It was kind of fun.
