Hmm. I'm not sure I'd argue that modern films have better cinematography than older films... most blockbusters' cinematography isn't particularly impressive, imo.

Depends on which older westerns you mean. Some were prestige pictures, made by the studios' higher-end actors, directors, and cinematographers. Other were B-quality or poorer, turned out on the cheap to subsidize the A-list productions. And if you're talking about the sort of Poverty Row titles that survive only in well-worn 16mm TV prints, they can look pretty dire next to modern digital productions.

I'm not claiming there isn't a spectrum in terms of older films and older Westerns. Of course some are better and some worse.
It just seemed to me that OP was claiming that new Westerns would have good cinematography, and I don't think there's any guarantee of that.

I'm not seeing that in the secret at all. OP says they wish westerns were more popular because they like gorgeous modern cinematography, etc. If westerns were more popular, there'd be more of them made and OP's chances of getting good cinematography are increased. I don't think there's any assumption that it's guaranteed.
