    I think the WB is off on these... But overall I was pretty pleased with the way they turned out. Some mild toying around in PSE7 with them.

    Number 5 and number 2 are definitly my favorite. I find that having the bullets in with it really makes it stand out. =)

    I think the wonky white-balance worked in your favor on this one, especially in the last photo. It really makes the color of the bullets pop. #4 is probably my least favorite. It just doesn't have the cold feel that the others do.

    The white balance is good here. It gives it the "matrix" type effect.

    Yes, nice photos and nice pistols- always wanted a Walther P22. But do stay away from any weapons references, discussion, or images here which are the least bit stronger than say, Wiffle balls, else "bad things" may happen! :wink:

    Just a bit of magenta in the highlights for example. -Shea

    There's something weird going on in the out-of-focus areas... did you do some kind of shadow lightening?

    Yes. I opened the shadows/highlights box on PSE and played with the Lighten Shadows, Darken Highlights and Midtone contrast sliders until I got a look I was looking for. I actually wasn't trying to achieve anything specific, just to make the photo look decent to my eyes. There is no rhyme or reason to what I did:)

    Man I do love the look of the steel/black two tone XD-9, wish that combo had been available when I got mine.

    oooo boy that p22 is a beaut! so much nicer looking than my sw22a.

    one thing i might suggest...give the pieces a quick shot with some compressed air right before you take the shot...they look super clean except for those damn pesky specks of dust that stand out against the black of the barrel.

    so far no "commentary" from anti-2A people, so let's try to keep this thread open :D

    well done!

    I like #3. I think that #2 would be better if you got rid of the XD9 and the 9mm round and just focused on the Walther P22. Just my opinion as both a photography and firearms enthusiast. Is there any better combination? If so, I'm not aware of it.:mrgreen::mrgreen:
