In memory of Sean Michael Matos, 21.gif JawnyRico.


Oops, spelled the title wrong.

These are actually 25-year-old Tony Lama boots. Since they are dress boots, notice the wing-tips, they have never been worn for riding or working. After 25 years, they are still beautiful and still comfortable.

I was trying to achieve an “Old West” feel by using the antique trunk and the dark sepia tone.

I was hoping for a 6+ score on this. Early in the week it was at 6.5, but throughout the week it gradually sank, and right before roll over it got a few low votes taking it below 6. :(

Too posed for my taste, but that's a subjective thing. Hanging belts are a nice touch.

It's a nice equipment/still life type photo. Would work well in an ad somewhere for sure. A tad devoid of any emotion (static). Good luck.

good textures but the boots look brand-new and virtually unworn. I'd rather see them scuffed, dirty and creased with age.

Good composition. I like how the boots are the focus, and the other "pieces" accentuate rather than detract.
