Not being from the south, I thought I would check out the rodeo(s).  It is actually a fun time.  There are a lot of photo ops, so I thought I would share some with everyone. 

These pics are from two rodeos- Denton, TX (made famous because of the filming of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show", and the first set is from Archer City, Texas (made famous from the film filmed on that location, "The Last Picture Show, with Cybil Shepard- the theater still stands today, and nothing has much changed there).

Not all the pics are great ( my bad), but there is a world of interesting things going on there, and if you are looking for something new to photograph, you may want to check it out.
Cameras: 1DXII,5D III, 5D II.  Lenses    24-70 2.8L II IS, 70-200 f4L IS, 70-200 f2.8L IS II, EF 400 5.6L, 300 2.8 IS II, Samyang 14 mm 2.8.   Flashes: 600EX-RT X 2, ST-E3-RT, 580 EX II.

The beautiful Junior Rodeo Queen of Archer County.  Horse decked out to match- note tail bling.  I don't think it shows up at this resolution, but the horse had red white and blue stars on it too- quite a lot of Texas pride.

The look on this cowboy's face leads me to believe that he has tasted Texas red dirt before.  This night, he was served up another course.  Horse 1, cowboy 0.

It was a great night, and I learned a lot from this venue.  At only about $10 or $15 per ticket, hard to beat.  I would have shown some "Mutton Bustin" (which is where kids ride on sheep as long as they can- quite a hoot), but the lighting was sub-optimal and most of the pics were noisy.

The copyright is too intrusive, especially on the second pic is just really ruins the whole picture. Apart from that, the pics are nice.

Thank you for the feedback.  You are absolutely right.  I didn't notice it until I posted, and I already modified it.  I obviously am no pro, but I put the mark on because in my professional life, a jerk tried to steal my pics and use them for his unauthorized purposes that were bad for me.  Anyway, I'll re-post with less intrusive mark.

Speaking of the 70-200, this time with a 2X III:

A good image might fit entirely into the histogram, might not.
