I had my shutter set slow to catch falling snow. I was unable to do that, but I did manage to grab this shot of a passing jogger. He was actually on a ridge above me, which makes for a more interesting shot. So does all the brush between me and the jogger. I brightened and contrasted with curves, and I clone stamped some sensor dust (thanks to that insane aperture).

==post-challenge==

I also masked the marathon man so i could brighten him up.

This was one of my 10s. I did not know whose it was obviously, but I thought this is real art and fitting to the challenge. I love the creative display of movement and point of view.

Not sure if the blur is intended for the whole image, but it feels like this shot was rushed

Great shot! The movement of the photo is phenomenal! I like everything here. Not too busy, so you are forced to focus on the "marathon man", the title is completely fitting, and the uniqueness just adds to it. Great shot!
