neat! i can almost smell the leather.

hmm. maybe shift the light source a little lower to get some stronger shadows and reduce the overexposure on the metal parts?

Almost authentic

Nice picture, Randall, except for the hat. No self-respecting cowboy would wear that straw hat! Well, maybe Chevy Chase, Martin Short, and Steve Martin, but they weren't real cowboys. ;>)

Hey Craig, blame my Onset Dresser! He's not a cowboy either;-) Did you notice that one of the revolvers is a 357 Magnum?

Hi Tom, one revolver is "blued" and one is not. As for overexposed, those are called "catchlights or "highlights. Not all shots need to be 8:1 or 16:1 light ratio. I have made prints from this image and there really nice. But thank you for comments.
