I don’t do a lot of “action” photography, but this year I had the chance to attend several rodeos and a demolition derby, and before this year I had never attended either type of event. I remember having a lot of fun, but felt frustrated because of the limitations of my Nikon D200 (mostly with ISO, since it only goes to 1600). However I did get a lot of great images, and this one stands out as my favorite of them all.
I’m looking forward to next year when I can use my new 7D at the same events. :)
