I was camping near Merritt, BC and came across some cowboys. The sun had just come up and they were separating the cows to be transported. I took a number of shots but these ones seemed to turn out the best. I did some experimenting with a few of the images in post. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

Excellent western atmosphere!

Wow -another great set Dan. I really don't want to choose favourites (they all work for me) but will give slight nod to 3,4 & 5. These really do create the western atmosphere as ewaizel said. I just had to nominate one of these, but found it hard to choose which one - went with 5 in the end

Woah! A great set... definitely worth nominating and I second that motion. :thumbup:

Thanks for the thumbs up! The cowboys did all the work, all I had to do was stand there and press the shutter button:)

Wonderful series, really liking shot 1 for it's atmosphere and sharpness.

I love them them all. Its really hard to pick a favourite but I leaning towards the first one. The fog in the pictures really adds to the atmosphere.

Love #5 for the lighting and dust. Brilliant set.

All outstanding Dan, but would have to pick #3, 4, and 6 for the win here. Love the close interaction of these between the cowboy and the cattle-beast.

It's a great set. I favor the 1st and the 3rd.
