Daily Deviation

Given 2008-11-08
Suggester says: "It has been said that photojournalism is the business of shooting exclamation points. HRR08 i like to get close by ~Theck not only left us with a visual exclamation point but the way how the artist was able to compose the piece that brought us into the Robert Capa tradition where the photographer placed his own safety in jeopardy, in order to get that killer shot."

This photo is great. Not only do you capture a lifestyle in one flash second, you also captured it beautifully. It's so hard to get this kind of shot without it blurring like mad or looking like crap. Much kudos, mate.

Amazing shot....I like the lines in this image. And as already been mentioned, the fact that the faces (both rider and horse) cannot be seen. Now I'm wondering what happened to the rider next. An absolute 'exclamation mark'!

Congrats on your DD. A worthy image, definitely.

This is outstanding. So good angle and action going on from the beholder.

The comparison is great. I love a photographer who goes after the shots =).

Haha, I like to be close to the action too... only I'm the one riding most the time. X3

This really gets the horse's point across... If I want you off, your off.

/= people seem to think all horses are for 5 year olds.

Amazing shot I love it. <3 :+fav:

Honestly this is one of the most amazing (and lucky) photographs I have ever seen on DA- and I've been on this site for four years.

Great composition, it makes you so curious to imagine the terrified expression on the riders face! And you can only hope that his right foot didn't stay trapped in the stirup.
