HOLDING ON TIGHT by SUZY WAKLKER
GRADE - MERIT
This is a great action shot. You have captured the atmosphere of chaos and commotion with dust and grit flying everywhere. I especially like the expression of grim determination on the face of the man. I think that your use of monochrome has really added to this image by removing any of the distractions that colour can bring. The image is a little underexposed and could do with a little more contrast and the face of the man could be a bit lighter. The black patches on the head of the steer are very dark with no detail evident, and more important, the beast’s eyes are not visible. Nevertheless the image depicts great action.
