This reminds me of Max Payne.

A lot of people say that, but what is Max Payne about? If they are similar, then they must have similar origins, right? Max Payne is about a man who is battling external evils while simultaneously fighting internal battles. To me this photo represent a wanting for pain to end. Whiskey, meds, a bullet... they all kill their own kind of pain.

Aside from the visual similarities, I would say that Max is seeking an end to pain as well. I think he feels that if he brings his family's killers to justice, if he puts a stop to the evil of the drug that's plaguing his city, then his pain will come to an end. Whether that is true or not is another question.

I understand that I like the overall photo.  I was just making comment that a long time ago for me personally I had a similar concept and the difference being it was the knife instead of the gun.  
And wow that is a nice knife .

I see. I've had a few people try and convince me to change the type of gun or the brand/type of alcohol, so I figured you were doing the same. It's interesting that we came up with similar concepts. Just goes to show that completely different people can come up with similar ideas.

Thanks lol

No problem. Its a very powerful metaphor and a great composition. 

For me it represent noir brilliantly and stands alone as an individual piece. 

Keep up the great work m8!

I can understand that. If you ever come up to Canada, you'll notice that our booze is freaking expensive! Like $15 for a six pack of beer, or $25 minimum for a normal-size bottle of liquor. :XD:

Ouch, I only pay about $8 for a 6 pack of Guinness, and that half gallon bottle of Jack cost $50 lol

I know they're supposed to represent painkillers, but I'm wondering if they're actually vitamins or something. ;)

Is it normal if I thought about suicide when I saw the gun ?
By the way, I love this picture ! The black and white effect make this picture so much emotional !

That's what a lot of people get out of it. Like the name suggests, the theme of this photo is painkillers, and I guess that would be one way of killing pain. The gun could also represent a way to blow off steam. When I have something on my mind, I typically like to go shooting because it forces me to concentrate on something other than what's troubling me. I think someone on this page called it "Ballistic Therapy"
