Comments:

It isn't often that photographers at The Journal Gazette have the opportunity to shoot a rodeo. Swikar put his skills in shooting sports to cover this one.

First off, Swikar chose a long lens that put the viewer right in with the action yet kept him safe from hoofs. Second, he used a fast shutter speed to catch all the action, along with dust and dirt flying through the air.
