Handheld, f11, 1/30th, no filters, midday sun, gamma reduced to 0.52. Detail from Police memorial sculpture "Guns Into Plowshares," 1997, by Esther K. Augsburger & Michael D. Augsburger, as a gift to Washington DC. The sculpture is a 14 ft. bronze, wrapped by hundreds of handguns that were confiscated by police.

the rigid right angles and the light colored/more reflective gun with a strong horizontal presence right in the middle prove that the exception proves the rule...just what you would avoid in another shot is exactly what conveys the feeling here. i think maybe some overexposure would have reinforced the harshness, but that might have totally missed the 'guns into plowshares' message. nice work!
