The Fort Worth Stockyards has become one of my favorite locations for interesting subjects and was the natural place for me to go for this challenge topic. This gentleman plays the part of Wild Bill Hickok at the Stockyards. This isn't the first time I've photographed him.

-It's an easy guess that someone will object to the border.

Don't be fooled. This was really a Fort Worth beat cop before he cropped it and adjusted hue/saturation and curves.

Just kidding. Stunning portrait, this is.

Great shot - my pick for a ribbon. I'm worried that the border may earn you a DQ though. Hope not!

Best photo here (so far). You know this though. You even (almost) totally framed this dude with his hat. Well done. That mustache could use a bit more focus. Actually the more I look at this, the more I wish you would have shown less shirt. Great, great perspective, looking up at this cowboy looking up. His face begs for you to get in there and show some skin cells.

This is a terrific portrait. I love everything about it (except the border). The pov is very interesting and unique, and really conveys a sense that this is a lone wolf, unaccustomed to newfangled flashy thingies.
