Driving the Herd

Cowboys and Cowgirls riding horses drive Texas Longhorns along the banks of the Trinity River near downtown Fort Worth! Although I took this image on a very hot day in June 2009 I have attempted to make this look like it was taken in the late 1800's - Effects created with PSE7 + Topaz and NIK Silver Efex / Soft Sepia (Original in the comments section)

Jeff- I love it. Cowboys and cowgirls on a cattle drive. This is so cool. You did a fantastic job of converting this into that old time feeling. It is so cool that you added the original picture and we get to see the transformation you made. The black and white, the tones, the whole mood seems so much better to me in this version. Excellent pov and composition as they are spread out across the page.
Creative, beautiful work my friend.
Have a great day, you take care.

Congratulations on being featured in this month's Digital Darkroom, Jeff! Your use of effects succeeded in achieving that antique "good old days" look.
