    This guy makes all other extreme sports looks childish. Holy crap. Great timing, great shot. I'd consider bumping the exposure a little, and if you get another chance, try framing the shot so you can see where this madman's headed. Framing even tighter so the shot's a mass of human and bovine muscle speckled with flung water might also create some interesting results. Incredible subject, no matter how you slice it.

    Between the copious amount of water spray and with all four front hooves being airborne, this is a phenomenal image Nandakumar!

    It may be my aging monitor but the image seems to be a bit on the dark side. It is hard to tell because of all the water spray and reflections but the three main subjects look like they could be lightened up just a bit.

    Awesome shot Nandakumar! I think Lex's description, and adjectives are as good as the photograph!

    I must apologize that lighting, especially on buffalo.

    Thank you very much

    Re: The Winner Takes It All...

    How did I miss this?

    Great capture Nandakumar,

    I looked at the EXIF out of curiosity (we have too many cats anyway and won't miss one);
    Canon 400D at 228mm, 1/1000s, f6.3, iso400. Good choices there!

    If I have one minor suggestion; it would be that if I were cropping this;
    I'd take a little more off the bottom edge, to get the subject a bit lower in the frame.
    I'd choose to slice just above the bright bar of reflected sky that extends across most of the frame, the lowest 55 - 60 pixels of the 1:1 view here.

    Cheers,

    Nandakumar, what a tremendous shot. It looks like the fellow is water skiing in the waterway, and maybe he is doing that. Terrific to catch such action in all three subjects. Well done!

    Nandakumar,
    Your photo is fantastic. As Jerry said (and I agree): "This is The National Geographic photo!".
    This buffalo jet ski is a sport in India? What is the name of this sport?
    If you can, take and share more photos!
    Congratulations,
    Antonio.
