My Head is Spinning~

That song has been stuck in my head since I finished this image last night. Finally got a chance to do so shots with my cowboy model . . . for a few minutes till the sun ran behind the clouds. Rob's idea to spin the spur.

I decided to stop numbering the series. I'll just continue on with the images.

Just some tweaking (levels, color boost and sharpened)

A BIG Congratulations on this outstanding winner, Marcie!!! It reminds me of a tv program I watched when I was a kid called Stoney Burke with Jack Lord! At the beginning of the show he'd always spin his spur! WTG!!!
