OK, not your typical cowboy shot. I guess this will work. Nice view of the sky, but if the subject is the stadium I'd recommend getting much closer if possible.

certainly outside of the box thinking, perhaps a little soft.
06/13/2008 02:37:57 AM
But like the composition and exposure in the image.

Oh I can hear the screaming from back inside the box already :)
7 for guts and also for nice highlight detail in the clouds, placement of the stadium in the frame

a little bit of a stretch, esp if you live in Texas!!!

If you showed an actual Dallas Cowboy? Maybe. This is just a shoehorn entry and does not meet the challenge.
06/09/2008 05:01:30 PM
This is still a shoehorn, imo.

I like this image however. I like most of what I see. Of course there is the matter of what I would of done in post compared to your final edit, but I still like it.

The thing I don't like about it is the title. It's an obvious display of shoehorning an image with the use of the title to point the way.

You only needed to convince me that this was in fact the Dallas Cowboys new home. I would of scored fairer.


What about some sort of emblem, or icon, or sign, or something...anything that actually tells me that this is the new home for the Dallas Cowboys.

But, all I have is your word, the title.

This may in fact be the new home for the Dallas Cowboys,...or it may be something else for all I know.

Your not letting me, a non fan of the Dallas Cowboys, have the choice loving, or hating the new home of the Dallas Cowboys because all it is is a building being built. It is lacking that one element to make this image fit the title, and make it even more special than it is.

Never give up, try again.

I don't think this is the type of "Cowboy" in mind for the challenge. Nice cloud formations however. :-)

Good photojournalism. However, it doesn't meet the challenge, IMO.

Increase of 1 point for creativity on the "cowboys" theme!
