If this is not perfection, you're closer to it that I have ever seen. Agree with jimoconnor's comment: the clean dark background makes this shot different and outstanding from anything I've seen. On top of the fact that it's a perfect capture of the instant. Waow! I'm wordless!

Wonderful shot! I'm curious about the lighting - I'm thinking the background is "clean" because taken at night; the lighting seems to be flash, but flashed from the right and far above the rider. If so, how did you get a flash so high off the ground?

This is a wonderful shot, my husband used to be a rodeo cowboy and he can relate all too well about this poor cowboy's fate when he eats dirt. Above all the composition of the subject is perfect, the edit and colors makes this well worth a thumbs up, I hope you intend to print and hang this on your wall.

Behind The Lens

Location
This image is my personal favourite and I have a large print in my study. It has won awards in a number of local and international competitions. Taken in 2016 at Dayboro Rodeo in Queensland Australia.
Time
My favourite rodeo is in winter at Dayboro because the natural lighting is almost always perfect in the middle of the day.
Lighting
The action is fast, furious and unpredictable so good bright lighting without it being too harsh is imperative to capture all the detail.
Equipment
My camera in this instance was a Sony a99v with a ‘G’ series 70-400 4.5 lens. The action can cover the entire arena in seconds so a long lens with fast focus is essential, particularly as these shots are hand held.
Inspiration
I love sports photography and especially the drama introduced by unpredictable animals. The dust, grit, hair and tassels caught frozen in time are fantastic.
Editing
I shoot in raw so post processing in Lightroom allows me to ensure that the colours and detail seen by my eye are brought out for the viewer. Photoshop is used to remove any distracting elements.
In my camera bag
I have a number of pre set bags for different shoots and in my action bag, I carry 2 lenses, wide and zoom, 2 camera bodies, 2 polarising filters, spare batteries, spare SD cards, sunscreen, a small canvas stool, a camera sling. Water and a couple of energy bars. Raincoats for both me and my camera.
Feedback
For the best chance of capturing images worthy of hanging on the wall, preparation is key. Arrive very early, study the environment, pick your locations for different times of the long day, lighting is going to change, not if but when so be ready.
