I have only been a member for less than a year, but still... This is the best photo I have seen on TE!
The action is fantastic. The few colours in harmony. The depth of field is simply perfect.

How fortunate you are to witness the dynamic bull race. Such a bull race is also held every year near my office at Katani Kalan, Ludhiana. Unfortunately the two racers died after being electrocution just half an hour before the race, when they were unloading their gear from the truck.
So I have to wait for one more year, but I thank you for posting the marvellous shot.
I have a few questions regarding this, and if you feel inclined, can you enlighten me on these ?
1 Where were you standing, I mean how far were you from the scene of actual action?
2 What was the precaution tool with you for the safety of your camera?
Waiting here on TE or on my mail, where ever you find it better .

namaste, great shot here. Like this composition with high shutter speed. Love the mud-mixed water particles in air. Like the facial expression of the man with bulls. Sharp details of the main subject with nicely blurred background. Great work. Enjoyed it a lot. Tfs.

Excellent action picture.
I like the sharpness and, above all, the frozen scene.

Wow, what a stunning capture! An incredible viewpoint enabled by use of a long lens, and a very fast shutter to stop the action. The expression on the man's face says it all. Just look at the muddy water being churned up! A superb action shot, and certainly my favourite today. I can't believe only a few people have stopped to comment on this.
