Image taken at Warwick rodeo in 2018 on a hot and dusty day, perfect conditions for these types of shots.
Shot in RAW and processed in Photoshop, I decided to set this image up as a portrait as it suited the head on positioning of the subject, I toned down the background to eliminate distractions and allow the eye to focus on the subject, I was particularly pleased the rodeo riders face was nice and sharp and with a good facial expression, decided to leave as a colour as it looked more punchy and popped out the screen.
