  1. A really good action shot. The colors, the dust that dizzy and horns directed towards the guy, a wonderful picture where there is a lot happening at once.
    Thanks for the comment on my page !

  2. Wow deadly pic.. I’m always a sucker fr jallikettu pics.. in spite of the animal cruelty angle nevertheless, I think its a beautiful and raw dynamic between man versus animal..

    Great shot Josh!

  3. nice capture of action. but part of the image is burnt out and someone’s back is visible at the lower right corner.

  4. un sport plutot risqué !! il faut surement une grande maitrise et beaucoup de reflexes face à ce puissant animal aux cornes aiguisées…superbe !!

  5. I keep wondering what happened just after this photo was taken. The bull is certainly outnumbered, but it’s clear that he isn’t backing down. A great story shot and very well done!

  6. intense. These are pictures that makes us feel “hey so what?! I can take better pictures than these, just that he has a better camera” hahaha! given the camera seldom do we succeed. superb shot Joshi…
