Taken at Michigan's Oakland County Fair Tuesday, July 10. I was dying to take rodeo pictures and this, to me, seemed to fit the challenge. Who wants to fall off? Just riding that bull would be a nightmare to me!

Well, I think this is a good rodeo image, but hardly meets the challenge. For one thing, a bronco rider always falls off eventually -- hardly a nightmare. :-/

Nice stop action. Composition is good. The colors are vibrant and eye catching without being over-saturated.

I love the idea behind it... but what i feel is, the persons looking quite comfortable on top, he should be angled down somewhere...
