Poor bloke, though actually the photo is slightly unfair - look at those legs, this ain't no simple hobby runner. I like his number 1, I like his determination - it's just an accident of timing that he looks so absolutely knackered - but then look at her, look how those folds in her coat accentuate that swing in her ass, and look at those boots - and would you absolutely blame him if he turned right around and ran after her? That, I guess, would be real loneliness ...

Mate... your shot has been soooo underrated! This is a beautiful candid and the expression on the bloke's face it absolutely superb! This is a great urban capture.

I love this shot. The composition is beautiful, but your subject is humorous. A real pleasure to look at. I want to see the movie! 9.

Iím not crazy about your idea but the execution is excellent. Beautiful tonality. I love that everyone that is completely visible in the photograph is facing away from the runner. Also, the runner is basically the only source of white in the photo. Nice job.

There's just something about this picture that keeps drawing me back to look at it. Very appropriate to the challenge, extremely well done.

i think his facial expression is sorta distracting...other than that i think this is an awesome shot. B&W works very well here.

Nice candid :) would have had more effect (for me) if he was the only person int the shot.

England! But is ther weather so warm that people can walk/run around in shorts? Impressive photo, I like this one a lot. The expression on the runner's face is priceless, so full of concentration. A nano-second later and you would have missed that.
