    Hi

    This event took place some weeks ago in my city, but I just found time to finish PP. (I still want to try converting some into B+W, but am not done with that)
    I messed up pretty heavy with most pics, but learned my lessons (2nd shoot with a dslr, forgot that I can switch ISO:p)
    Anyway,
    1. This guy is practicing what we call "rejoneo" in Spanish, which is basically, bullfighting on horse.

    2.This is one of the famous Domecq horses, his rider was practicing some dancing

    3. Same as the above

    7. Dancing

    (That's an ugly halo around the hat... will have to check the jpg compression)

    8. "Jarabe Tapatío" a traditional Mexican dance... this time with a horse.

    Boy oh Boy....that was one tough venue. Sunlit tent and white shirts/horses and action, all at the same time.

    Your subject matter is very interesting. Just keep working on the things you realize need more help.

    I liked the close-ups, meaning pictures 3 to 6!

    The other ones were hard conditions, I suppose. Keep going.
