i mist say this a great picture and even better for the theme see yoyrs has a wow factor i looked at all the rest, there all the same picture diferent place, in focus, same depth of field, same position. Not one person aside from this doing anything diferent not even looking bak as they run, your image reminds me of reading a book or listenin to a sog in a world of ir own an ambient vibe. Nice work sorry if ur like woa over the top ha

What an amazing idea. Everything you do is ingenious, but this picture in paricular fascinates me. Whereas in most of the other pictures that I've seen are in broad daylight, the almost eerie darkness gives a more weary feel to the project. As if in all your "running", you're growing tired but carry on still into the nighttime. Once again, amazing.
