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. #7846349
