Not only is Wrangler the traditional jean of choice for cowboys, but apparently this bull was intent on doing his own version of wrangling...

Scary as this shot was, the cowboy escaped unharmed. The bull (sorry, never got his name) was on his way up at this stage and had just dumped the cowboy.

This makes me cringe a bit, being in the rodeo years ago for barrel racing and training horses for cutting and barrels

Hopefully this dude didn't get hurt too bad.. nice capture timing

Great action shot. You get the pain by just looking. Processing could be better and a bit flat. I believe the B&W does help to separate action from the background though but still less depth could have enhanced this even more. Face of the guy top right says it all.
