Taken during a trip to Vanuatu, the sun set between the mainland on the left and a small island on the right, separated by a a sand-bar. As I took the shot, a local ran between the two making it look as if he was running into the sun.

Crop, LAB mode - sharpen and curves, cloned out some dust spots, noise reduction, curves and levels and hue/sat. Added a border and saved for web.

It's a shame about the size restriction. I'd love to see what this picture looks like at a decent size. Without the title, I would have missed the runner. Well done.

Great detail. That dude is super far away, and with all that light it is cool that you were able to capture the moment so well.
