Default Into the maw of death

Perspective is a lot. It means not only differences in angle of view, but changes in color and emotive treatment as well. Here's a war-shot's view of a 155mm Japanese cannon used in the battle of Okinawa, currently located in the military museum at the Yasukuni Shrine in downtown Tokyo. As impressive as the size of the cannon itself are the numerous bullet and shrapnel marks around the breech, made by the U.S. soldiers attacking it, and that signal its--and its handlers'--last moments.

I enjoy the coloring, very suitable to the picture content. However the gun runs off the stage so it gives the right side of the picture a heaviness in balance. Perhaps adding some color to the left side could balance the composition.

Thanks, the issue of balance is a tough one, without adding even more special treatment than I was willing to go for at this point. Since the breech naturally fills up the right, perhaps the shot just doesn't work this way.
