Nadine- Good morning my dear friend. Ilove rodeo's and this is one of my favorite parts of it. Man against beast. You did such an amazing job of capturing the side if it that isn't always pretty. The look of that bull's eye is incredible. He has his sight on this man and what he intends to do to him.
Lighting and clarity are outstanding. Rich vivid colors that are a part of the rodeo world. The action shot and the remarkable definitions could'nt be more perfect. A stunning picture of what these men go though to earn a buck and fame. Can't say its for me.
Phenominal work
Have a wonderful day, be safe, be blessed. #6116432
