Oh the hubs is gonna kill me if he sees what I did to him... LOL well that's what you get when you wifey poo say's I need a model... I burned all the shadows and dodge all the highlights on his face, That REALLY brings out the wrinkles!!! hehehehe

BTY if you think you've seen that hat before.. Yes you have.. That's my FAV hat, ah the one in my avatar! I love this hat!

Oh and talk about weathered, that bench is like 40 years old, Dad built a picnic table and benches when we were kids. We still use them! Well this one gathers a lot of moss under the old oak tree....

Well because my Hubs always gets the Rough end of the stick when it comes to editing.. here he is all purdy!

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

I like the pairing of the ol' cowboy with the old bench. Both have weathered the times and time has left it's mark on both of them. The cowboy looks tired and with the faraway look seems to be reminiscing about the past. The bench, though old and worn, offers him a place to sit and take comfort. Nicely presented - plus for using B&W so your audience can appreciate the details of the shot.
