Everything coming together in this shot - or, to be precise, everything nicely separated, so that the background is descriptive, without being messy.

A real contrast with the last shot in that respect. Excellent!

I also notice that the rider has been terribly snesible in wearing a motocycle helmet and what looks like a padded vest: I wonder if that is considered to be not quite playing the game?

Again, good settings, excellent timing and focus, you did everything in your power. Pictorially the problems are in the background, and the strong overhead sun, which were not in your control.

I've uploaded a modification. You have already worked on light I think, looking at that lower hand up close. I lightened a bit overall, then I worked on the falling figure very gently with the dodge tool, set to 3% exposure and selecting highlights. This brings out a bit more detail in the darker areas without flattening the subject. A small improvement I think.

That's better. Still the sharp background but subject position provides the separation. Just a slight flatness in the image colours - could try a bit more saturation and contrast.

An excellent action image, well timed and captured. Maybe a couple of teeny tweaks as mentioned above but, one I would have voted for in the main gallery.

There goes the bull!

Much better as its closer, very much focused on the action, and timing is very good.

A quick mod with minor tweaks
