Hi, Karen -
This one is really something! Wonderful energetic action, frozen in time and space. His body is in an almost perfect arch as he is spilling over the horse's head. Nice colors, very sharp despite the obvious motion. Well done.

Hi Karen,
Once again another brilliant action shot, another cowboy going to bite the dust! Great colours. TFS

Great timing and focus, Karen!
A nice and sharp shot.
Congratulations, friend.


Hi Karen,
Another great rodeo shot. I have to imagine that this did not end up good for the cowboy. Anyway great action shot and once again your timing is excellent.

Hi my dear friend!
Another great photo!Bravo!I like it.Regards.

Hello Karen,

These cowboys are brave individuals!

Again, you have maintained a fine, sharp focus during this fast action shot. The blur of dust against the horse's hooves give some indication of the movement.
Lovely composition.
I think you would make a fine news photographer!

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Well managed shot and well presented.

I know this depicts the wild west but you are pretty fast on the trigger (shutter) yourself. Good capture. Doesnt look like hes going to land on his feet :-) TFS

WOW!! Just as he is fixin to hit the ground! Nice work Karen! excellent stop action shot, very sharp! HA! Now how in the WORLD did he not get hurt?? I would be in the hospital for weeks!

Hi Karen....nice sharp shot...well composed.


Good action series you've got going here Karen.. The 1/800 second has done a fair job of stopping the motion..
Don't worry about getting hurt - all part of the fun (like us types who play (or played) rugby).

Hi Karen

How do you do it so consistently? Yet another perfect decisive moment shot from the rodeo. Dynamic poses from both the rider & the horse here, with good dof & sharpness. Tfs!

Hi Karen
This looks like the before picture to the last post. Excellent capture. I'm surprised that this fellow is wearing glasses.

Hi Karen,

Jeepers! Awesome action photo! I just hope this guy was ok after this. Looks very dangerous sport but great material to photograph as proven here. Awesome photo. TFS.


Hi Karen,
I must have missed this one! Perfect timing, this guy looks like he is going to be in pain any second :), although you said nobody got hurt so I guess it couldn't have been that bad, lol. Nice clarity with this one, good work.


Hello Karen.
I never seen a rodeo but after seen your shot its like my that you had a nice day.
Beautifull shots en good sharp.
