I set this up with an overhead lamp above the gun and bullets to give it some nice overhead lighting. I also used a tripod to eliminate camera shake, and thought the black and white added a nice touch. I also intentionally placed the bullets around the gun. Hope you enjoy.

It's hard to rate this because of it's nature. It might have been a better approach to use lighting to create a different effect than the rather flat approach used. In another type of challenge, this would be a very effective image as the conversion is nearly perfect and well controlled.

Not a fan of gun shots but this is nicely done, I like the drama created but the lighting
