    I wasn't sure if I wanted everything in focus or primarily the gun. After taking several shots I liked it better with the knife OOF and the cylinder and barrel of the gun primary.

    looks really dark on the far left, and you cut off part of the object on the left (I don't know what its called).

    the gun looks good though.

    I think it'd be better if the focus was on the actual product (the whole thing). Can't tell anything about the flashlight. I think the knife OOF looks out of place if you're trying to showcase it. Also empty spaces in the frame.

    Here's one I like by Sardauker. Magazine looks overexposed and I think he shouldve loaded the whole magazine (cant tell).

    I agree that the shot looks a little awkward with the knife out of focus. With shots like that, if you want something out of focus, it has to be REALLY out of focus to make a point. Right now it looks like a mistake. Good composition though.

    If the motive is just the gun and the bullets it's great a product photograph, but if the flashlight & the knife also are included in the motive, it got some problems. Maybe just less vingenting and get the knife in focus would solve it.

    This looks oversharpened to me. I see "stairsteps".

    Could be just the resizing causing that. I think it was shot with an A640.
