About the Image(s)

My Image was taken on a ranch outside Phoenix at a workshop. With the cowboy wearing dark clothes against a wood background in the shade, there was very little color in the image.

I converted to B&W and the image really popped with so many textures from the cowboy's clothes and skin to the horse and bridle, so I put in a lot of contrast to emphasize the textures and give it a slightly gritty look.

Deep Blacks and sharp details define this pictures assets.

Nicely done.

Hi Clark.
A superb portrait of this cowboy and his horse. A classic composition with great separation of subject and background. I particularly like the range of tones and the sharp detail. The high contrast suits this image well. Very nicely processed.   Posted: 07/08/2024 17:30:32

Love the two bright spots on the picture being the leathered face and hand of the cowboy, but especially how the cowboy's eyes are pointing straight to your camera and almost overlapping the right eye of the horse. I very much like this picture!   Posted: 07/09/2024 12:23:46

This is a very impactful image.
It is hard to look away from those eyes!

Great job!   Posted: 07/09/2024 22:27:38

Love the sharp contrast that makes the cowboy strong. Lots of details, well processed. Not sure if you have other shots of the set, I'd like to see the face of the horse too (lol).   Posted: 07/10/2024 09:50:20

this is a great portrait. I have something very similar I can share of which I took in one of the riding competitions of my daughter. The eyes are telling the story. The background is not overwhelming. I like it a lot.   Posted: 07/11/2024 08:58:34
