Playing for real

I spent a very enjoyable day at a shooting range in the Wairarapa on Saturday. There was a competition on for people involved in Cowboy Action Shooting, so I took my 'proper' camera along to try and get an image for my portfolio.
These cowboys and cowgirls dress up in 'wild west' outfits and use firearms of that era in shooting stages that have a feel of a Clint Eastwood movie. The guns are all real .45's or .44-40's etc., but are mostly modern reproductions.
For this image I used Camera+ to lighten the shadows, add a warmth to the colour, crop the shot and put a border around it.
