Kind of a slow month, but some really fine shots in this batch.

Which one is your favorite?

I opted for E.T.'s 3-pronged attack...>

I thought the shot had immediate visual impact and it's a clever and different way of posing the pistols. Very good.

From artistic (composition) and photographic (sharpness, colour balance, contrast ...) point of view, Doogle's entry and Smith357's entry are given my preference. Nice shots guys!

The background of Freakdaddy's photo provides awesome dimensional depth, and the Kimber's clarity and crispness of detail is superb.

The Shadow created an interesting and attractive image with the 2 vintage firearms, giving it that genuine old west kinda look. Very nicely displayed I think.

Zoned in on Freakdaddy's picture. The eye candy from members like these are why it's good to log in here. Good luck to the contestants.

Shadow would've gotten my vote - looks like I wasn't the only one to agree.
