About the Image(s)

Title: Coming To Get You

I took this image at a small rodeo in Roy, Washington. It received a 9/9/9 in the Northwest International Exhibition of Photography small prints. I did some burning of the cowboys in the background, which would eliminate it from PJ, but I wanted to have something different than my usual soccer images and thought it is worth discussion.

Settings: F8 /1/1000/ISO500
Lens/Camera: Canon 100-400/Canon 1DX

Hi Bruce, this is a top rodeo action photo of you. You captured the scene very well and the photo has a great dynamic. The facial expression of the rodeo speaks for itself and your image editing by enhancing the structures gives the photo a special touch. The award in the Photography small print exhibition is absolutely deserved.   Posted: 09/01/2020 03:03:13

Thanks Hans, I really liked the expressions on the faces of the horse the calf and the cowboy. I hope to get over to Germany as soon as the Covid resolves to see my son who is living in Frankfurt. Bruce   Posted: 09/02/2020 21:43:09

Hello Bruce, an excellent image. Cropped perfectly, captures the whole scene really well. The expression on both the horse and the calf are so captivating.
I do feel, though, that it is slightly over sharpened. Just a few shades back would be great. Doesn't detract from your image though and as Bruce says, well worth the award!   Posted: 09/07/2020 14:48:30

Wow - this shot...The expressions on all three of the actors in this image caught my eye immediately. I like the crop and the action.   Posted: 09/07/2020 21:03:31
