  #171 Emotional Still Life
Entry 10 of 27
   
 
Which came first, bullets or people       ©2016 ysal
Panasonic DMC-GX7       10th place, 79 points
4s, f9, ISO 125, 40mm, Manual, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Cropped and resized. Adjusted color balance and saturation. Adjusted exposure and midtone. Denoised and sharpened. Then, I spent quite a bit of time cloning out dust on the black plexiglass I used for the background, which turned out to do a fantastic job of attracting all sorts of dust.       Extra Info: I tried to look for anything that may stir controversy and thought of these. What looks like a stack of bullets is actually only two with reflection on the dark plexiglass. The title is a take on the old argument by gun enthusiasts, "people don't kill, guns do"

    Dang it. I had my quote backwards. It should have read "guns don't kill, people do."

    Nicely composed and taken. I think the title detracts a bit - I think the photo conjures up emotions very well on its own.

    great entry. good composition... lighting, placement, etc.
and you were right. my immediate reaction was 'no no no!!!'.
i live in this country that has more guns in private ownership than the whole rest of the world put together (don't know that for sure, but probably true). over thirty thousand people die each year in this country from gun related violence (and suicides too) and that is a verifiable fact!
