Carla- Right into my favorites. So many beautiful things to say about this gorgeous work of art. I will list them: the framing, the selective coloring, pov, composition, dof, the lace of the glove, the colors of the fan and all the degign work, the position of the arm and fan so that we get that framed look at the bandit with the bandana pulled up over his nose. Every part of this picture is done with beautiful perfection. A sure winner you have here.
Gorgeous, incredible work my friend.
Have a wonderful day, do take care. #7934201

Great image and PP work!!! I would love to hear what was actually the "shot" here. #7939904

Carla Metzler September 14, 2009

Thank you Ken and Randy.

Randy, The image is two shots layered together. Both were taken at the Ft. Worth Stockyards Station. The masked gunman was paart of a skit performed by 5 or 6 cowboys, and the saloon girl was in another area of the station.

I'm including the two shots I used. #7942967
