Hi all,

I had the opportunity to run the Manitoba Marathon a few weeks ago, and took a few shots of the runners after I finished.

Nice set Evan, the B & W certainly captures the strain and pain on the runner. This is my favourite sport to try and capture these expressions, our local marathon is the 7th July and I'm looking forward to it.


Cheers

Nice pics! I've taken quite a few running pics in the Army as a formation passes by but your photos look much better capturing individuals. The guy in picture 2 is awesome being able to still concentrate on using the Force levitating that cup still running like that :lol:

congrats on completing the marathon Evan, awesome effort. Is it your first one, have you been training for long, how did the body feel after?

yes Mike , you are right the force is strong in that one. I like the shot of the lady runner smiling.
You runners don`t smile enough :twisted: :D

definitely looks like too much hard work for me.

Congrats on the run and glad you were still able to lift the camera afterwards.

I feel a few of the images are a little pedestrian (excuse the pun) and nothing really draws me back to them, but 5, 6 and 8 are excellent. They really show the joy and pain of the runners. Out of them all 6 is my favourite.
