Corrida in Sevilla.

Not really a fan of this sort of "entertainement". In fact I'm most against the cruelity of corrida. But I never seen one and i prefere knowing more about the subject to critize.

It was interesting despite some hard moment. (in this moments, i prefered to watch my photos on the camera rather than looking that).

even if it's a bit long (6 bulls, about 20 minuste per bull....), i found the show interesting.

FOr this shot, the bullfighter waited the bull on his knees, just in front of the entrance. no need to say he had to be quick to avoid it. And I had to be quick to take the shot. Alas I forgot to take my 50-150 lens. so here is a big crop.

Hello Olivier,
This is terrific. I like the blur of the charging bull and the sharpness to the remainder of the image. The colors are eye soothing, but most importantly you have composed a winner. Greetings, Danilo

Hi there!
Although I am also not a fan of cruelty to animals, this is a great shot.
I like your composition, with the crowd in the BG and the "fight" in the FG. I also like the bright colours of the matador and the feeling of motion that you captured with the bull charging.
Well done and TFS!

Hello Olivier
Et oui je suis rentrée,
bien belle ton arène avec le torreador majestueux face au taureau qui charge vite
excellente netteté


PS Merci pour ta visite

Hi Olivier,

It has been a long time that I don't see an action scene of this in a bullfight.
Beautiful capture and visual of this bullfighter.
Great bottom field, and the colors are wonderful as the details.
Congratulations for the beautiful presentation!
