This is an old photograph (20 plus years old) of my flatmate training on the beach of Paparaumu (a small town north of Wellington I think) for a marathon. It needed a little bit of help in taking out scratches and speckles but that was all.
Note added later: it should be Paraparaumu ... my aging brain cells are failing me!

I really like the composition. The colors are great and the fact that are all more or less in the same tones make it pretty. I would say that looks a bit over-exposed on the top right, but at the same time it's nice cause it makes a gradation of tones to the bottom left which also makes a nice element on it. It's a bit blured but it looks nice to distinguish only the silhouete of the runner. Good shot!

I agree with Humberto. An excellent composition in which the runner is balanced by the darker clouds. You have caught a sense of movement, with both feet being off the ground.

I love this picture. A lot of reasons... About the composition nothing to say. I am a runner and I love the ocean...so

Really nice photo. I like the title, being a distance runner myself. I like the old feel of the photo. Great training grounds. Thanks for sharing.

This is a nice shot.
I live the silhouette and the colours.
Great composition, I can see where he is running to.

Love the way the runner seems to be suspended a bit above the ground. Beautiful colors.
