Greetings from the Critique Club!

First I must comment that I love your user name! ;)

Now on to the shot. This is a well done DOF, everything is great focus and the fence line and path/road leading you into the shot and through it. The jogger almost seems like an afterthought. Not sure if he was placed there or you just happened to catch someone jogging. He doesn't really add nor detract from the shot.

The lighting seems a bit bright (yes my monitor is calibrated) and the grass seems a bit to yellowish, almost as if the yellow is trying very hard to overpower the green, creating a bit of a struggle for balance.

The sky in the upper left is more of a distraction to me and if there was someway to crop it out but using my magic envelope, if you do, then the rest of the shot ends up off balance. Maybe if you could darken the sky area a bit, it seems a bit blown out and really takes away srom the rest of the shot to me.

Overall this is a great shot, I gave it a 6 during the challenge and if I had time to go back through the shots would have probably raised to a 7. I was looking at your profile and portfolio and love some of your work, especially the black and white, it wonderful.

Good Luck In Future Challenges!

Run man run! I liek this one, I really like I can see the trail in the backround too. The green's just a tad unnatural though but otherwise great

Very nice use of the path to lead your eye through the photo. Everything is in focus, meeting the challenge perfectly.
