Post challenge:

Like all good bull riders, he hit his hands and knees and then walked out of the arena. He may have had some sore ribs the next day.

Great action capture, I like the title too! It does make me cringe a little and maybe thats what hurt your score a bit. The guy on the left really adds to the shot as well but that pink 'hot' sign drags my eye out of the photo a bit.

Yikes !!

Why's he trying to attack the bull from underneath ? Is he new to this sport, or is this the Brokeback Mountain Rodeo ?

Oh wait . .now I understand . .it's alright - he's just been trampled by a ton of bull : )

No problems there then : )
