Another Ohio "Cowboy" tribute to the late dpcer, Sean Matos/JawnyRico. It was taken at the Ohio Renaissance Festival in Harveysburg. 200mm

Swapped photos 3-times. Maybe the out-takes are better? I couldn't dodge the overexposed hands and make the green backgound dark to bring out the fire.

Are these better?
Took about 70 shots of this act. He also juggled other items.

Good luck on that career change. I am about the same age and have done the same thing. Well, fools jump in where angels fear to tread, and all that ;-) However, I reckon we can do it, given all that experience we have! Nice bokeh flambeau in this shot, BTW.

Great capture! Congratulations on your high finish.

I think this one was perfect for the challenge - and a darn fine shot on its own as well! Great crop - dynamic and brings us to the action. Very good capture of his expression and I love the visible heat waves. I think this was the right choice over the others you've posted. And congrats on a new entry in your top row, as well as an excellent finish!

Comments: Ouch, that's a hot foot for sure! Great job getting a nice sharp image (can even see the heat distortions) and perfect lighting.

It's a very interesting photo but if not for your title it would appear he's trying to give himself a hot foot. Why didn't you show him doing some actual juggling?

I've seen "wand " juggling. this is a cool shot!

I like how the composition puts the focus on the fire, but I wish I could see more of the man.
