I wanted to use "The Beast" to light this, but didn't have enough time because of my other assignments (one in Baytown). Maybe next time. :-)

What was the shutter speed on these? I remember you saying a while back that you used 1/250 for boxing shots - I assume about the same?

The light was really bad, so these are either at 1/160 or 1/125. The bulls were moving fast, but not as fast as it looks.
