Great shot! Oh, well, on the score. DNMC, of course. But if you've got something similar, put it in the free study. I bet it'd do very well!

Excellent shot. Good selective desaturation. Maybe a shoehorn but with the Bon Jovi reference I'll accept it. 8

Great action shot and good use of selective desat.

Hmmm? You're photo is probably going to smoke the heck out of mine. It's certainly a better photo by all means but if not for the title, I think it would be a far cry to see it as a 'Cowboy' shot. For me, the challenge was not only about 'Cowboy' but also a 'Memoriam' for a fellow photographer. Yeah, I know, 'Cause I'm wanted - Dead or Alive'. Maybe your idea was 'In Memoriam? He actually did have a challenge depicting a Motorcycle as seen here but I wonder how many voters will actually bother to see for themselves?


Well, thanks for your time. I'm not voting in this challenge but if I were: As a challenge shot I'd have to score it a 7 or 8. Maybe a 9 'cause it's a wicked bad-ass photo. As a stand-alone photo: it's a 10 all the way. Thanks for your time...

Pushing the challenge a bit, but I'll let you off as it's a great capture. Plus they do look a bit like they're riding horses.

It's a great shot. I'm taking a point off because of the questionable reference of a Cowboy.

If you hadn't titled it as such, I wouldn't have considered it a cowboy shot, of course. Like the colorizing of the subject. Great action shot.

Good action shot and great color, however I think your score may end up more "dead" than "alive". Good luck

great shot and desat, but I don't see 'cowboy' here...too title-dependent.

A bit of a stretch, but a magnificent capture. Well done.

Very good action shot, but doesn't really meet the challenge, IMO.

Shoehorn or a creative approach to the challenge? You'll probably hear comments of both types throughout the voting period.

Interesting use of selective desaturation here to create a stronger separation from the background. Nice crop to add focus to the rider's eyes.
