    1. Some extremely nice, artistic pics on these pages.
    2. A very few, just don't work, for my eye.
    3. Art is definitely in the eye of the beholder.
    4. I take terrible, plain, uninspired pics. But, I continue to try and improve.
    5. See a pic you don't like? Ok, move on. Each artist and admirer has their opinions on how and why the image was framed and composed, as shown.


    The following pic: good contrast, not cluttered.
    A perfect pic.


    NOT!

    A little art critique on your image… I see Passion of the Trailer, Kill Bill’s brother Bud, the contrast is minimal with lack of negative space. Very against the grain here! Good Eye!!

    One of my favorite revolvers that I really like the looks of is my S&W 327 Night Guard yet it’s about as photogenic as a lump of coal. I took several shots of it lying on the patio stones.

    BBCC6BB5-AB8A-40C6-822D-618A84E671BD.jpeg

    These are basically all the same, but I think the 4th photo down looks much better than the other 3.


    Here are two more shots of the 327. One in HD (high definition) and one not. My phone will take 2 different exposures of the same photo.

    Pat Riot - that #2 shot of your pistol seems to be better lit as the engraving on the side of the barrel and the S&W logo by the grip are more visible than the other three pictures. Nice looking revolver.

    These were both bad pics, didn't spend time on lighting or focus. The one below, I put a little more effort into, but I'm no photographer.

    I'm no photographer either, but I like #1 best and #2 second. All good, thanks for sharing.

    My #1 son took this one of his 1911 resting on a driveway marker we had created for my father in law.
    IMG_0956.jpg that's a large chunk of flagstone.
    I like the black and white version.

    Maybe, you should get a lump of coal and try it as a backdrop.

    Coal in California? Heck, that might cause a hand-wringing bedwetting protest of some kind. :rofl:

    Good idea though. ;)

    I'm waiting for the semi to build a little air...the backdrop today is the foundation of a grain bin.
    The excellent Roger sr9c is the subject. 20211112_100046.jpg

    I tried to get a decent pic of my Kibler .54 with accouterments but they didn't turn out too good. this was the only one halfway presentable.

    Wow.

    I actually found that horn at Dixon's about 3yrs ago, along with several woven straps. Some bloke in Tennessee made the bag and lined it with granny's housecoat. :p
