Different types of weapons by `xbastex Two kinds of shooting, two kind of weapons, and many possible interpretations for this image... ( Suggested by jadedPhotographer and Featured by myraincheck )

The weapon on the right is very persuasive... it is the device which serves for raising fear, coercion and eventually killing.

On the left side we have a weapon which has far more complex use than a gun. It can show truth or manipulate facts and images. Sometimes one accidental picture can ruin somebody's life or push him to commit suicide.

You are asking which of the weapons is more dangerous...
I would say that it's not a matter of weapon but of the one who holds it in his hands. Because he is the one who chooses how to use it...
What do you think?

The message this image sends is incredibly wittily thought out and strong. The angles at which the "weapons" are being held are identical, it's amazing how well this frame was captured considering the fact that those are not models but real people in an actual situation.

There is a certain kind of contrast between the uniform and shirt, and how well protected the soldier is, while the photographer seems bare compared to him.

All I can say is congratulations, this is the kind of photography that is powerful and true and you captured it brilliantly.

This has been the highest rating of any critique that I have given, and it is well deserved. I love this shot and haven't seen something with such a strong impact in a long time.

After watching 5 Days of War, I wonder if you're the same Sebastian as in the movie, and if this friend of yours is Rupert.
