This is a very exotic photo. The colors are wonderful.The horse and the fellow in midair are like two islands of warm colors in a sea of cold colors. The composition is exquisite and the timing is perfect.
It looks like there is more commotion in the distance. I hope you waited to get a few more photos with that crowd.

I am puzzled by your picture,as your note is very scanty.I would like to know more.
However,the picture is well handled as the horse and figures are all moving at speed.

This is a fascinating scene, and has a lot of great elements to it. As I look at the man on the left, I have to wonder how he is in mid air like this! It gives a sense of magic to the scene which is very fitting for the title you chose too. The horse is a very majestic and beautiful animal, and the bright yellows and reds stand out beautifully against the softer colors of the background. Great shot, thanks for sharing.
All the best from rainy Ireland!

A very dynamic composition with all the elements in excellent positions within the frame. The punchy colours stand out against the quieter BG colours.
An interesting post.
Kind Regards, Ann

Interesting tradition and your view especially, freezing the action with the celebrants running to keep up with the racing horse with god atop.
Happy Trails to you,
PS: Do not worry about timing on responses, "sharing" is more important and not specified what is or is not correct.

gli scatti in movimento sono una tua bella prerogativa, riesci sempre a fermare l'azione nel migliore dei modi.
Anche questa foto lo dimostra.

A shot packed with detail and action Takero and much to delight the eye. I don't like the look in the horses eye (rather wild), he doesn't seem to enjoy the event as much as his handlers. A very well caught moment. Warm regards rosemary

Hello dear Takero,
a superb capture from a very special event. Such an exciting scene, full of vibrancy and intensity. You've captured the scene, the movement and the expressions with amazing sharpness against a smooth backdrop that sets off the attractive luminous whites and the warm colours. The sense of depth is great and enhances the impact of this unique image. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

I always admire your portraits but even more I like the festival shots which also show some context of the nature as here with the lovely beach. There is so much movement and action captured here, very well done!

Hello dear Takero-san
We can almost feel the tension here! The two men run with the horse while the other tries to hold it back. The timing is well done and the colours stand out well.
