I was back in the hospital again, three days, extreme respiratory distress owing to a cold going to bronchitis to maybe pew-monia. It was fun (/S). I did manage to get to heart rehab Friday so that's good. Found out there was to be a Freaky Friday the 13th Harvest Moon so I got up before dawn Saturday to get it setting.

But I got skunked. :oops:

The moon is there, probably just over the house on the opposite shore, but, um...

Sorry you were sick but glad you're well enough that they let you loose again! Wow what a sky! You got detail in those clouds to rival Bob Malarz! And great color too. The lone runner adds so much vitality to a beautiful scene. Very nicely done.

lots of depth, amazing sky - like the layers of sun and shadow.

Hey Charles! Kick butt on that pew-monia crud, okay? I like this shot. My first emotion was awe at the expanse, then clouds, then color. I wanted to be there, something is happening, emerging yet peaceful and protected at the same time. My only nit pick is the runner’s legs. A pro told me to catch a leg extended forward for runners and walkers. It makes a visual difference in terms of what they are doing, and that their movement is intentional.

Thanks, Karen. i appreciate the comment. I didn't ask for critique (this is not a critique section, only a showcase), but I have to disagree with your Pro (and I am one, too, retired, but still...). The reason the runner is where he is is the composition. I am not big on "rules," they are guidelines really, but generally I want a human going into the frame. I wanted this guy right where he is, charging into frame close to the "suggestion of thirds" for the dynamic, and seeing him leaning well forward tells anyone he is intentionally running; his leg position is completely immaterial. It might be true of walkers, but runners are usually leaning in---you can't miss that they are running. (Y)
