    Are you and optimist, or a pessimist? Glass half full, or half empty? Uncut can, or very consistent shooting? I know what I'm voting for! upload_2021-10-11_17-52-38.gif ;)

    I'd call that consistent shooting! As far as KawKan's Dynamic Art goes I'd name it "Terminal Velocity"!

    I asked my wife if I could hang it on the Christmas tree. She set a new record for how quickly she can say "no"!

    Call it whatever you want.... looked like a good time to me!!! And those thin ends on the sides are always fun and challenging to finish

    Took the pic with my Samsung Galaxy cell phone (Older model, not one of the new high end ones). I use a very easy to use photo editing app called Polish. All done right on my phone and whole thing took less than 5 minutes.

    would that app work on a pixel,it may already have something like it come to think about itw when i got it they said they phone took pics equal to a DSLR but you have to know all the photo tricks you know all the right settings and things and i don't i've watch a million video about better phone pics on you tube this pixel is just to complicated other you know auto flash and just hit the button and those are great so i can only imagine if i knew what i was doing,you have a great night thanks for getting back to me

    Your pixel should have excellent built in photo editor. You can download the app from the Google Play store.

    I call that undone work........ realist
    But hey I took a turkey down with a nibbler ,and shot a moose with a clay ball , so don’t give me this shit about consistency are you consistently hitting the little spot you haven’t..lol all fun yes I still have not killed a dog can and it’s just hanging on but ..A failure ,I cannot hit that little teeny piece and it will not come apart good can..one year .... I quit hung it on the wall to remember that no matter what survival is the name of the game.

    I call it sweet shooting but sacrilegious comes to mind. I can't walk away without finishing them off. :D

    I agree it is a good group but I can't restraint finishing it with a "bottom hit"
