p.1 #1 · #496 1 second... Made by the power of 10!


I could not decide upon a subject, so I decided that I would play on my own urban fear... crime! I have always lived in rural IL and worked in our central IL urban area and the one thing I do not like about it is the level of crime.

Good idea and the macro shot of the bullet is well done.

A very creative take on the the WA. You've captured some great detail.

The backstory is crucial to the image, the image alone is successful, but the story ties it to the theme.

I wish that I could have brought more of the concrete into focus. But to stay with macro, I just could not.

Couple of things you could have done to achieve that. Back off the subject to allow for a much greater DoF. Since the photo's have to be 640 pixels across this allows you to "crop to fit." That should achieve much great DoF. Also you could do a focus blend.
10mm, what a great caliber. Don't see them much.

Tough call, I also wanted the headstamp clear since it worked into the story.

I'll admit to "big-city paranoia", too, Matt, so the pic and the story work for me...
(in all honesty, when I lived in a city [Portland, OR] for long enough to get to know it, I was only paranoid in the areas I knew were unsafe for me... )
Good photograph; Benny's recommendations above are about the only ways to increase DOF...the pull back and crop method would still keep the headstamp sharply focussed, it would just reduce mega-pixels a bit - no problem for web display.

I had a very similar idea, only it was the front end of a hollow-point. I decided not to post it after seeing yours. It would look too much like I'm trying to rip-off your idea. One thing for sure: Bullets are fun to shoot with a camera or with a gun!
