I'm not a gun lover (don't own one), but I liked the impact potential

from this public sculpture "Guns Into Plowshares."

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!
