Well, I gave this a 7. Unlike many of the entries, you actually portrayed an extreme emotion. I don't expect everyone to have Hollywood-like props and locations.

Edited to add: now that you know how people treat photos that don't meet professional film quality standards, you can decide whether to bother with this kind of shot again or not. The fact that it doesn't bother me is one point, but scores are based on average feelings, so if that's what matters, you know what to do.

So So Scary- it would be great if the person holding the gun was woman and the bullet holes look more real. But, then again I'm not sure how they are supposed to look.

Good crisp focus on the gun. Good positioning of the elements in this shot.

.. like a woman scorned. Is that her hand? Its not really scary its more like a frame from a B movie or comic strip. Its well composed and executed.

lol, those are the fakest looking bullet holes I've ever seen. I like the vantage point and the "expression" in the hand though

I am no CSI but I would expect more blood :P
A nice set up shot and definitely tells a story but seems a little fake to feel extreme. Of course would I really want to see a shot that the victim appears to actually shot? Please excuse my ramblings I am not voting just commenting on the images. Maybe some detail in the dead man's hands would have added to the tale and give a reason for the viewer to wonder why the death.

very much extreme emotion, but the gun shots look really fake to me, which takes alot from the image. a great idea all the same

Are you getting the idiot comments like "The blood doesn't look real"? LOL I'm afraid that I've gotten that! What do these voters want.....BLOOD??? LOL
This shot portrays that emotion well. Nice shot. Pun intended LOL

Do I think this image shows "Extreme Emotion": I guess it could have been, but the event has already happened. Tiled bg doesn't work for me, gun maybe too dark and blood needs more blood, 5.
