Chuckwagon Cowboy

This is another shot from Saturday's San Jacinto Day festival. "KR Wood aka Camp Cookie" offers "Authentic Chuckwagon Catering & Cowboy Entertainment" according to his business card. "Camp Cookie" also, I think, never met a camera he didn't like! :-)

Title: "Chuckwagon Cowboy"

Camera / Lens: Canon 40D / Canon 100-400mm L zoom
Post-processing: Photoshop CS3 > Duplicate Background layer > Topaz Adjust "Neutralizer" preset to improve overall exposure > Curves Adjustment Layer to improve overall contrast > Merge Visible to New Layer > Distort Lens Correction Vignette

His face is awesome. You really did a nice job capturing what I think is his nature. The colors seem very natural and add nicely to the overall effect of the image. Nice work.

Thank you Patrick!

I sent "Camp Cookie" a copy of the photo. He was pleased with it and asked if he could use it on his website. Its nice knowing the photo will serve some purpose other than just a post on my blog.
