Hanging on, by Trevor

ddigit, or Trevor from New Zealand, is our 50th different photographer to be featured on the Digital Photography Now Picture of the Day since the beginning of July. Trevor is a versatile photographer happy to be recording sublime landscapes in his native New Zealand or photographing his country folk in portraits or, as here, in action shots. Today we're at the rodeo and what I love about this shot is the fantastic tonality, with a very sharp subject against a nicely softened backdrop which makes the picture almost three dimensional. The action of the horse as it struggles in its battle with an unfamiliar rider comes across crystal clear. Trevor is an accomplished and expert photographer and I hope he won't mind me pointing out that there is a slight grey halo around the rider and parts of the horse. This makes me wonder if Trevor has artificially softened the background, but the halo is only noticeable if you look very hard.
