Last night I had some old rolls of film developed, and some of them turned out really well.

I really liked this one... It just needed something, so I put it in there:
http://www.thehighroad.org/attachment.php?s=&postid=985738

Can you think of something that might fit in there? Anything that fits better?

Thanks,
Wes

P.S. Extra credit if you make me laugh! :D

I think the caption you have is dead on perfect, but a.) you need an exclamation point instead of a period, and b.) the Helvetica type face and its imitators have been used to death.

Some of these are pretty good!

I was initially thinking "It's your turn to do the dishes."

Oh, it's a BHP 9mm, BTW. So I guess he's got to run 1150 FPS. :D

I had a couple of other ideas last night, but they're not coming to me... I'll post again later if I think of more.

"You have 13 reasons to leave my property."

Holy crap, that is an awesome one! It really fits great because I named that gun "Lucky 13." :D

4v50 Gary, I like "Wrong House" too, but I was just looking for others that might fit. Basically just looking for variety.

I'm not witty enough for good captions lol, just wondering what exposure settings you used?

I was using my Minolta SRT201 SLR with a 50mm "standard" lens. I opened all the blinds on a bright day for the lighting. I believe (but don't remember for sure) shutter speed was 1/125 sec, and f-stop was either 4 or 5.6.

I didn't plan the shutter speed and f-stop out... I usually just shoot shutter priority and leave it at 1/125 or 1/250 for versatility and adjust aperture to match.

Basically what I did was get the lighting bright enough for a good picture (I don't have a flash), set the shutter speed fast enough not to detect shakiness, and made the aperture match. Before I shot I used the depth-of-field preview to make sure it would look good. Then I shot. I'm pretty pleased that it turned out as well as it did for only trying it once.

Most people consider 13 to be an unlucky number. Those people must not own a BHP.

:) Funny you should say that! 13 has always been a lucky number for me. (Jesus Christ AND the Twelve Apostles) That's, 'Why' I like my Browning P-35 (Hi-Power) and Glock Model G-21: Both hold 13 rounds. Although the last time I had to pull a gun on somebody it was a S&W Model 59 with 16 rounds stuffed into it. (He decided that he didn't want to play!) :D

I like "wrong house" it's short and potent. As far as the font, if you had a glass effect to apply to the font it would be cool. You could see the caption put it wouldn't detract from the picture.

I like messing around with Photoshop, and I'm trying to find a pic similar to the original (gun in hand, pointed almost straight at the camera), but in extreme close-up. However, it needs to be a revolver; I want to see the rounds in the chambers (and, if possible, the one down the barrel). Because my caption is "Your name here" with little arrows pointing to the visible bullets.

I've looked at hundreds of pics using various image searches and only found a small handful that was almost, but not quite, what I need.
