This was underestimated in the voting, Ren. Not pretty enough, I guess! I hope you'll do more thoughtful stuff like this. Notice how several of your commenters remarked on the quality of your IDEA? Any numnuts can take a decent photo (even me), but not too many can distill a good idea as well as you have here.

Powerful image from a story point of view.
Well seen, and a good choice for B&W.

crisp shot. your lines seem to be in a bit of a competition with each other, and don't end up drawing me at your subject, as my mind wants to follow the lanes off of the page. setting him up at the starting line and taking the shot straight down the race lanes would have been a bit more cliche, but i think it would have reinforced the challenge better.

I think that black & white was a good idea here.

Leading lines or curves generally have two purposes. One is to lead the viewer into the scene. The other is to lead you toward the main subject. It is most effective if they come in from the lower left because that is the natural direction humans visually scan a picture from so are easiest to pick up.

Great use of leading lines to direct the viewer toward the introspective world of the athlete thinking about the race.

this is my favorite entry in the challenge...an original idea and very well executed

This is a simple idea, executed with skill. The result is one of those especially effective & memorable images that makes me think, "Why couldn't I have done that?" The photography is competent, but the idea is really terrific. And what makes it even better is you've resisted the temptation to overdo it; the track shoes, the lanes, the dreams, and THE LINE ... that's the whole story. One of the most creative approaches to use of Leading Lines. Well done. 9

I like this shot. It looks a little hot around the face and right shoulder. But what a unique shot for this challenge.
