About the Image(s)

In the same theme as last month, this is from the Enumclaw Pro Rodeo. This rider was in the “chutes” getting ready to go.

Canon 5D3, 70-200 w/1.4x @205mm, f4, ISO 5000, 1/1000.

This is an image where I caught the riders face. I highlighted the rider, darkened the background, and tried to tone down distractions.

Any ways to make this better? How does this compare with last month’s image?

This is the best display I have ever seen in these PSA groups of such impressive circles of rope. I can almost feel that hard lay in my hand (I am a knot hobbyist), plus you show the roper's face. Everything else is secondary. Would be nice to darken the white hat behind, even if the guy stays.   Posted: 10/03/2019 17:59:33

Thanks Stephen. I did darken the white hat. Maybe I need to do a little more.   Posted: 10/10/2019 12:48:51

SO much better than the previous version which hid her face. I think a lot of darkening is in order as there are a lot of distractions in the background. I did a bit of burning all around to demonstrate:   Posted: 10/14/2019 16:29:52
