Thanks for all the welcome back messages, really nice of you all Smile
Some more rodeo shots.

Have uploaded a few as in some of these I think I have tried to overcompensate for the blown out whites very badly here. Not in V1 but in V2 and 3. These were taken in the midday South American sun, well 2 pm-ish. Plus I am still jetlagged after flying 5 hours from Easter Island, 12 hours from Santiago to Madrid and 2 and a bit hours from Madrid, plus the in-transit waits.

As I said in the previous upload …they only chased the bull, not nice at all I know, but they did not draw blood, just hassled him a lot for about 20 minutes. The name of the game was to get the bull to the other side of the ring and back without him escaping from the wall. All about horsemanship control really.

Thanks as always for all the C&C’’s

No.3 seems absolutely brilliant to me, Dianna. Good composition and perfect treatment, the high contrast and all that strong, harsh light only add to the atmosphere imo.

thanks again all, I like V3 too but was not quite sure
I felt sorry for the little bull(s) too but he was only on for about 20 mins, they kept swopping bulls

Not a nice "sport" but some good images. I like your choice for V1 but agree with others, V3 is a bit special.

It never ceases to amaze me what some humans will do for entertainment, bullying a calf around a ring is a prime example.
That said your coverage is well done and at least shows us the pointless spectacle in graphic detail.


PS Thank you very much indeed for all your
comments and votes I really do appreciate
you taking the time , especially as you are
no doubt worn out from your travels. Good to
have you safely back.
