    I really like the first one. I am a bog fan of an oof background (bokeh), I would have used a more open aperture. BUT, that is just personal preference.

    I will add that I really like the lighting on the first one. Brings out the details very well.

    I don't know about the photos, but the guns sure look nice.

    Just kidding, they're good pictures. I agree the first one's best, it's got good lighting.

    @ chains1240: I too love bokeh, so much that I bought a piece of software that allows me to simulate the bokeh of any lens at any f-stop. I just didn't feel the need to apply it to this one as the fill light pops the subject off the background nicely. In fact I hadn't thought to use it here, but now I'll go back and do so, just to see the difference.

    As far as the lighting goes, I found a nifty little device made by RPS Studio that basically turns my Nikon SB-600 into a camera mounted soft box. $12 at the local camera shop. Given how much I use it, that's practically stealing.

    PS: The MP5 is only an airsoft replica, all others are actual firearms (including my M1, which I love!)

    The first one is the best and the lighting looks good. I would fill the frame more unless there is more going on in the background that you need to capture then go wide/step in.

    Do you belong to any flickr photo critique groups? I'm a member of a few of them and they're reallllllllly helpful also.

    Keep em coming!

    Photography Minor from LSU back in the early '90's and LSU Sailing Team Skipper for the whole time.

    We raced 420's and 470's. and raced keel boats out on lake Pontchartrain.

    Laser sailer, eh?

    Flat light/overcast days are tough to create solid images out of.

    Good depth of field control.

    Yep I used to sail the Laser, had to giver 'er up when I joined the Navy. Nothing serious, just a few beer can races during the summer. They hated me in my laser when they were all sailing 15 Coronado rentals from the local club. I had to take on quite the handicap in order to even the playing field.
