After taking this picture, I want to shoot it again. Placing the flashes in different locations. 


This is an experiment for this months photo contest.

I thought it was a good photo as-is. Were you unsatisfied with the lighting in the shot? There is no right or wrong with lighting placement on a subject like that. To a large extent, it's all a matter of personal preference and the effect you wish to achieve. If you put more light on the whole rifle, it would show details of the rifle better, but is that what you were trying to achieve? The lighting as-is lends drama and "stealthiness" to the shot, which isn't be the best choice if your intent was to show off the rifle, but it works well if the intent was to create a "menacing" sort of mood.

Well, I was wanting is to be dramatic. 

I know wish I would have had a touch more light on the muzzle and made the rifle more level by pushing those legs out, instead of at ninety degrees.

That's pretty.  How do you like the grip?  I almost got it for my 6.5CM AR10 but opted for one I knew.

Phil I don't like it. I'm going to see what else I can use and hopefully replace that grip.

Yes it is. That scope is a 4.5-27x56 with an EBR-2C reticle and MRAD turrets.

I change all my grips to BCM Mod 3. They have a different grip angle and have a slight swell for the palm.
