Those are actually benadryl pills... the fake cocaine is the powder inside a couple of them. The cocaine is to help show that the four items are supposed to be drugs. I used red to give a 'danger/stop' undertone. This is almost straight out of the camera, shot with a red 25 watt light buld. I expect many 1's... even though the message here IS drugs are bad, m-kay?

Good use of color to set the mood of a disturbing picture. Could have been a little more in focus, especially on the powder in the backround.

Doesn't send a good message... No paridise at all. :)

I don't think so.

What a sad message being communicated in this submission. Four tickets to misery and destruction perhaps, but not paradise.

I like the monochrome effect of this picture. The composition is also very good. - Inspzil
