Rodeo 91

Rodeo 91 by Lorraine Jones, APSNZ EFIAP/s GMAPS

I used a Canon 5d Mark 111 with a 70-200 lens. Steer wrestling, also known as bulldogging, is a rodeo event in which a horse-mounted rider chases a steer, drops from the horse to the steer, then wrestles the steer to the ground by twisting its horns. When choosing my image I want action-impact-design-angles--interactions with the people---- colours--least busy background and lots of dust as i put dust in to create more mood. I lighten dark areas and darken light areas. When deciding on the image to process I have to like it. QUOTE----The horse that couldn't be rode never met the rider that couldn't be thrown.
