Thanks. I could crop tighter, you're right, but I do think the 'setting' is somewhat important. And re: backing up - that little sliver of grass on the left was totally photoshopped in, it was just dirt that led downhill to a gully/drainage ditch type of thing, so nothing too pretty there. If I backed up any further, I'd also lose the effectiveness of my pocketwizards and wireless transmitter, so my distance/crops/framing are all sort of at the whim of that.

Nice shots.

One thing though... I hate to even mention it, but since it is for commercial use...

The gun shop will have customers who will stupidly point out the "poor trigger discipline" of the model and totally miss the point of the hot chick with a gun. These "can't see the forest for the trees" folks can't believe that you managed to verify the gun was safe before shooting. I'd guess 20-30% of the clientele will comment on this - if only in private.

I'm a gun guy, and when I see pictures like these on firearms forums I wince because of the oncoming "look where her finger is" comments... :rolleyes:
