Yep. My favourite little bareback bronc, Wildhorse Production's Heavy Shot, giving me yet another killer shot with my favourite cowboy aboard for yet another matchup. It's anyone's guess who will win when it's Heavy Shot vs Joe Courville. That horse knows his angles, and always seems to be having so much fun out there, I swear he's just dancing. Hence the title.

Just wish I had some more headspace at the top for bronc rider Joe Courville, but ah well. I think he nearly won this round!

good processing. the overexposure of the crowd allows the subject of the photo to pop.

Fine action shot. I like how the background audience is faded out.

I like the processing on the people in back. In fact I find the background more interesting than the foreground as the angle on the rider hides his arms and head and is therefore not as strong as it could be.
