First part of the Bull-fight. The maestro is trying to show who is the master to a 538 kg's bull. The shadow is as impressive as the bull himself.

Very nice picture that shows exactely how bullfights are just trickery and how matadors are all except courageous people... This view shows how the bull does exactely what it has been teached to since its early years : passing sufficiently near the torrero to impress naive people but also sufficiently far to avoid any risk for the "maestro". Therefore, the man has only to do some spectacular move with his wrap to start an ovation from the spectators. Oh, I know that some accidents occur and that some torreros can be hurt during bullfights (but they are really scarce !)! But such accidents are only due to the lack of training of some bulls that behaviour is less easy to predict for matadors...
You wanted to show a picture of an interesting and spectacular manifestation ? You only succeed in showing one of the most pathetic game that human being has created. Hope that evolution of mentalities will lead to disparition of such cruel, useless and shamefull hobbies !
Two points for you, eventhough, because you've been courageous enough to share a picture that, I'm sure, won't be appreciated by all TE community...

I really like the color of it, perhaps a panoramic crop could help to center the subject, too much sand on the bottom and shadow on the top.

Très belle chicuelina, le torero est superbement enveloppé par sa cape. Le taureau dégage bien une impression de puissance avec la poussière qui s'envole et l'ombre est superbe
