Processed this image using Topaz and NIK for the adjustments and I replaced the background with a texture -

*Cowboys in Texas are common - However, people/portraits are not really my genre or forte so this was a stretch for me. This is a candid capture during a Cattle Drive west of Fort Worth.

What a great portrait. I think the original is still great and you did well to get the eyes so bright with the shade of the hat in the first place. Your treatment is spot on to get rid of the annoying bright white in the background. #11879648
