They were all so good, I almost didnt vote! But I had to go with Cooper. I liked the simple photo.

Good job guys!

Officer's Match's P7M13 photo for me...>

It's a good angle on the pistol. Focus appears acceptable - just a touch soft at the muzzle and front sight but not distracting. Placing the pistol against the plain light background has worked well. The directional lighting has produced good contrast and emphasised detail. The image has a slight red colour cast and the background could do with a little cleaning up to eliminate the distracting darker patches at the top of frame.

Overall, a pleasing image with a degree of impact.

Thanks.

Thanks Doogle, it was taken with a 9 year old point-n-shoot 3mp Canon.

That's good to hear. The bulk of my shots were done on a 3Mp Coolpix 880...>

...it's a great little digicam. I haven't shot too much at all on my more recent (or rather, less obsolete :-) 8Mp Coolpix - not as user-friendly to me.

Get the basics right - composition, lighting, focus - and as long as the camera is acceptable you should do OK.
