A bareback bronc and cowboy at Spencerville Stampede, 2014.

Sadly I have neither name of horse or cowboy, though I can say that they aren't Heavy Shot and Joe Courville, who feature most in my rodeo shots here!

This challenge ends voting on the 27th of November, which will be my 50th birthday. Interesting to see how the scores pan out.

Hello from the critique club

An interesting image that contributes well to the challenge

A dynamic action shot from a great viewpoint to create something more unique and interesting. Getting up close like this really helps the viewer feel more involved and a part of the action you can sense the atmosphere of the event. The angle of the horse also adds a further dynamic to the image with its strong diagonal, it couldnít be better compositionally leading into the arena with the background spaces filled with the audience and others involved. Personally, I like to see some motion blur from a slower shutter speed but still a great shot, well done.

I would just like to add belated best birthday wishes to you Susan, hope you had a wonderful day...

I love the strong straight lines that contain this image.

I'm hanging this in my fantasy gallery

Strong moment captured here. The bystander and spectators are well framed, too!

Great moment of capture - loads of energy, transferred all the way through to the viewer.
