Great shot! Great action! The color is nice, so as the composition. And the whole action just freeze.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice action shot. Wish the guys in the backround were just a little bit out of focus though but other than that, it´s good.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/30/2007 11:18:35 PM
awesome clarity, great moment. the only tick off for a sports photo is no face on the rider, which always translates better and hits home with the viewer. bump to a 9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/30/2007 08:56:17 PM

Cool! 9 :) With a background behind the rider that makes him stand out better, it's a 10.

08/29/2007 03:30:36 PM
Nice capture; would work better if the background were simpler or more bokehed, so the cowboy would stand out more. Color and focus are spot on.
