Yep they are the real thing! My BFF Kathy (ahem on right) broke and set 4 new arena records in 1976 at the IFR. Sonny her hubs was a bareback rider, turned team roper. Still living on a ranch here in SW MO and still Livin' the cowboy life!

Love the vintage feel of this and how you just know it's authentic. I remember voting on this one and gave it a 7 on the last day. Nice to read that it had a nice surge in score on the last day.

I had a suspicion this was yours, but not strong enough to leave a guess.. The cowboy theme is a recurring subject for both of us, however yours is the real thing.

Great portrait and a nice choice of something to add a sepia tone to.

This is a nicely done sepia portrait. The highlights are a little bright on their faces (maybe emphasized by sharpening?), kinda makes them look like they have shiny skin, but I like the background and vignette.

What's the Cowboy way... hugging your woman? I think the title is a little misplaced on this one, but that is neither here nor there. You got a good sharp portrait that looks like it would be cherished wherever it is displayed. Good tones add the vintage feel.

Nice processing. You've managed to use the sepia conversion to enhance the shot, rather than it just looking like an afterthought to meet the challenge. Well done.
