Made by Firebrand, model Discovery. Unfortunately the Firm is no more existent.
Bow is custom colored by myself and the cables are of new design. Original cables was "y" shape and I changed them with parallel cables to get through shot system, which is more stable with no bow twisting and with less wear to cables.

Congrats on your win in "Should Be On My Wall" Challenge!
What with the sentimental reasons for the sport and for this particular bow, also the unusual combination of shapes and colors, this image came out on top.
Thanks for participating, y'all - I hope to see your works in my next Challenges (which will be somewhat different in concept and approach).

Behind The Lens

Location
I took it on in may room. Blue Flis blanket on my bed was used as the background.
Time
14.36, but it is not important, because LED lamp was used as the light source.
Lighting
5600 Kelvin white LED light bulb was used and only a slight white balance correction to get the colors right. Also, some contrast and sharpening was applied.
Equipment
Olympus E3 with lens Zuiko Digital 12-60 f:2,8-4 SWD on the Manfrotto tripod was the tool to get this photo.
Inspiration
I practice 3D archery and this is one of three bows I own. It is the most interesting, unusual and innovative design and it looks cool. Actually it hangs on my wall and I use it regularly for the practice. Maybe it looks complicated but in comparison to other compound bows it is very simple for tuning especially after cables and string modifications I done.
Editing
I corrected White balance a bit, due to White LED bulb illumination I used and some slight contrast and sharpening was applied.
In my camera bag
Most frequently I carry Olympus E3 and E520 body's in combination with some lenses and what I want to photograph is what make my lens choice to use. Lenses are all Olympus made Digital Zuiko 12-60 mm, 50-200 mm, 50 mm Macro and tele converter 2X. I also use manual Zuiko OM lenses 500 mm f:8 cat eye (reflex, mirror) and 50 mm f:1,8 with macro tubes.
Feedback
Nothing special as a recommendation or advice I can't give. As usual, take care of composition and use some interesting object which may look good to other people. Some care of color combination is also needed to give a good contras and to accentuate the main object of interest.
