crazy running of the bulls photo--k-3 photo contest
Lens: canon 18-55 Camera: canon 40D 

I took this picture laying down; hoping that the bull might jump over me.
I wasn't the only one. It's all part of the festivities during the one of Spain's biggest international events: the running with the bulls.
But this isn't the actually running with the bulls; this is what happens next after the running is done: the organizers let out
five (albeit, one at a time) young bulls into the arena, in a friendly event, where the runners avoid getting run-over by an ill-humoured bull in a wild rampage.
I took this picture with a canon 40D (an old camera, so it wasn't that bad if it broke in action; unfortunately, it's my only camera but it survived
This picture has not been manipulated on. In fact, you can go see a series of pictures that I took while I was partying down in Pamplona.
hope you enjoy

Did the bull just disregard the silly photog on the ground? Very risky photo but obviously a great shot was the result so congratulations! Nominated.

The camera could have been mounted there, and fired remotely - for me, the end-result matters, and I hardly ever care how it was achieved

Great composition. Makes me feel like I am lying there on the ground, hoping that the bull doesn't charge at me. Like said, it could be remote fired to achieve the same result, but its a great photo nevertheless. I nominate this picture.
