we live beneath the barrel of a smoking gun

we live beneath the barrel of a smoking gun

A simple compositon framed by wispy, smoke-like cloud. I enhanced the contrast of the two opposing elements in editing. Through imagery and representation i wanted to reflect the darker truth that, despite everything, our country still lives and leads by the way of the gun.

I think there's too much sky above the barrel. If you want the viewer to believe the impression of living beneath something, having that element high in the image would enhance that impression, in my opinion.--Chris

Great composition with the focus inevitably on the crook of the arm and the pointing gun. Clouds are like smoke here. Very, very strong image. I look forward to seeing more of your photography here.
