should have used higher shutter speed

A faster shutter speed would have frozen the action better, but you had perfecting timing for this shot!

My eyes keep wandering from the rider to the cowboys in the back. Especially the pink chaps.

Easy to say, but hard to do. Shoot from lower down to eleminate the cluttered background. Good shot of the bull, but it would have been nice to see the rider's face.

Nice action shot. Looks like your focus might have fallen behind the subject, but maybe its just the blur throwing me off.

I shudder at the sheer power. Great capture. And triumphant, indeed.

Whooaaa! I get chills just watching that. Nice action shot. Expresses the theme well. I would've cropped a little tighter to get rid of the white sky and perhaps B&W would serve this shot seeing as the neon's are a bit distracting. My rule of thumb is usually that if the colour doesn't add to the theme of the picture, I make it B&W since it's less distracting and helps focus attention on the theme - personal preferance. Good luck.

Excellent Shot. Love that bull's eye! I really like the fact that all the spectators are focused on the Bull & Rider. Nice composition. The slight blur on the rear end of the bull and rider gives just enough sense of movement for this shot. Well done.

Nice capture - But technicals let it down a little as the guy is a tad too blurry - You focus more on the really sharp people rather than the rider.
