Bullfighting at the Las Ventas bullring in Madrid. This is the early stage of a bullfight where the bull is tested for its ferocity. (After this stage the bull would be stabbed by a lancer...then further stabbed by some sticks and finally killed by the matador with a sword - if all goes according to plan)

Beautiful this composition. You very well exploited your POV and found the ideal framing.
A riche composition : all the ingredients of bullfight are here : bull, toreador and crowd in the steps.
A single shot. Great.

Hello Cheuk - I've never been to a bull fight and I am not at all sure I would like to but I do like your shot. With your composition and good POV you have managed to capture so much fine detail in a colourful and attractive shot. Best regards Rosemary

Honestly I'm from Spain and I do not like this event, I think it's an atrocity. But I recognize that you've chosen a good point where you see how many fans are in the country and also to the two protagonists.

You had a great POV from above to capture this spectacle. I like that you have included the half circle of spectators to give us an idea about the environment and the vibe with the full stadium. I like the elongated shadows of the bull and the matador too.
