First, please let me say that these photo are completely staged, and I do not support/promote violence in any way, I am not a violent man.

Today, Purim was celebrated in Israel - the "costumes" holiday.
One of my friends dressed up as a character from an action video game (call of duty), and as soon as I saw him with his toy gun, these 2 shots came to my mind.
I hope you would like them, c&c are more than welcome. :)

Given the thread title I would have assumed that the weapons of execution would have been very prominent within the images.

Unfortunately, in these images the weapons are either out of focus (image 1) or indiscernible (image 2).

As they stand, the images lack a subject/theme and consequently don't work very well for me.

That said, if the weapon in image 2 had been indiscernible, I think it may have proved to be quite powerful.


My wisdom is learned from the experience of others.

Thank for the comment.
In the first picture I actually believe it is ok, and being out of focus is on purpose in this one.
About the other shot, I totally agree, and noticed it before uploading - I just couldnt fix it..

focal points are wrong here, both pics fail to deliver the message. make the gun tell the story.
