Living in the UK you don't see many REAL cowboys, so with the help of my son and some lighting we have, hopefully done Jawny proud with this humble submission. As I edit and submit this shot, A solum tear comes to my eye. I will certainly miss his vibe around here. RIP JawnyRico, A Cowboy & A Gentleman.

MAK! This is beautiful beyond belief. I would definitely have given this one a ribbon if it were me deciding. Your tribute to our friend is touching and stunning!

Cool portrait. I really like the look/effect you've got going, looks cool. Very slight nitpik, but I wish there was just a touch more detail in the dark area of his face, around the eye area, possibly by a carefully placed reflector. A really nice shot though.

Some how I do not like the haloish processing of the bg. Other than that a very nice portrait

A nice portrait. Seems overly staged and not as authentic as a couple others in the challenge, but still a nice entry overall.
