IMHO this is the best of the bunch , a little blur but great composition.. when shooting rough stock try to be on the side of the head.. meaning if the head is pointing (in the shute) east you want to be on the east side of the head they usually role over there shoulder on the first jump.. I know that is hard to do in the stands.. do some test shots get the fastest shutter speed you can without loosing light and if you do, bump up the +EV.. most folks think ISO increase but the EV is my little secret..and of course run your apature as large as possible (samller f#) Good luck Dale..www.pbase.com/cowboy43

Yup, nice shot. but it would be better to pull the rider out of the background a little by using a wider aperture, or even trying to run a high powered flash.

Thanks Dale....you've offered some good tips! I took a look at your website... you've got some pretty awesome captures goin' on there!

Now I can't wait for our town rodeo to come up in September. I hope I can find something sooner than that though....

Thanks for the suggestions. I used the widest aperture on my lens but the distance prevented me from gettinggood background blur. This was my first time out doing shots like this. I've learned a lot and hopefully I'll be able to come up with better captures the next time out. :-)
