Hi! Here’s a comment from the Critique Club.

First Impression:
Nice shot!. My eye went to the runner, over to the trees, down to the sky and then down the building skyline.

Nice framing with the trees. I really like the arch effect. Find the amount of dark trees distracting. I would consider cropping the three trees on the right. This would draw more attention to the runner.

Meets challenge

Nice DOF and focus. I like the details and colour in the sky and clouds. Very effective lighting on the distant buildings. Green a little bit oversaturated in the trees to the right.

Good eye to put this picture together. Not sure about your score…may have been the imbalance between dark/light and your subject. Voters don’t spend a lot of time looking at the picture, so 1st impression is important for their initial score.

Good luck with future entries!

Nice composition. A little to dark for me.

Nicely New York there. The sky is interesting - we have been lucky of late with that.

I don't like the idea legs, but I love the view. Don't ask me why, when I think transportation, I would like to see a man-made vehicle rather than feet or legs... anyway, 7

The framing and colours are nice in this photo, but the runner seems overwhelmed by the other elements of the photo.

The sky is the best exposed in the photo and it seems at it were the subject.
