This shot popped into my head today while I was doing some random housework, so I thought I would drop by and leave you a comment on how excellent it is.

Great capture! That sky really has texture huh? It is almost too much texture for me and I kinda loose the little guy running for his life. Overall great interpretation and presentation.

A bit overprocessed but I like it! The wee runner almost looks like a toy.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/07/2006 02:44:23 PM
I like the concept, but the runner really gets lost in that swirly, busy sky. Still a very good photograph though!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/07/2006 01:58:09 PM
Nice. Those clouds are great.

sky don't look natural but love the subject...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2006 11:51:35 PM
Great A+ sky. Did you set this shot up? It looks like the runner just started from a crouch. It celebrates life, but does not seem general enough. I only know about 3 people who run like this regularly.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2006 10:22:33 PM

WOW!!!! That sky with the silhouette of the runner is GORGEOUS...10!!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2006 01:19:21 PM
Great sky/ clouds and light. The silhouette works really well and I love the really dramatic ground crop. The sky seems to have gone very strange though, due to your processing ?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2006 12:38:43 PM
most gorgeous clouds I've ever seen

how did you do it to the sky under the basic editing? that's amazing! 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2006 01:26:00 AM
I love the colors, the sky and the silhouette. But it does look a bit overdone as far as getting rid of noise. The clouds look a bit plasticy and fakey. Still, great image. 9

Wow, is this basic editing? The sky is great!!!
