Great capture! I like the expression caught, the tension seen on his face and detail of the vein at the temple.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Great capture of emotion, framing and DoF. I like how he is flanked by runners on both sides over his shoulders. He should know not to look back at his competition - loses time that way. ;-)

You captured a wonderful expression.
Black and white tells the tension of his mind.

Reno from Madrid, Spain

A lot of tension in this portrait...I like the detail of the mouth and eyes, he seems to be afraid of something. This picture records me the lyrics: you can run but you can hide.
