I've been posting a few comments here on the forum so I thought I better subject one of my photos to general discussion.

I took this shot at a local fun run and it got printed on the front page of the sports section of my local town newspaper.

The photos was pretty much uncorrected because I knew it would be printed in black and white 200 dpi.

Shot with a Canon 20D and a Tamron 17-35 telephoto at 20mm. Shot shutter priority 1/500th at F6.3.

I set ISO to 800 because it was a cloudy day (good old film technique).

Personally I think this shot is a little overcropped, however the wide angle gives it an interesting effect.

I like the perspective of the shot.

However, what hurts the shotis the runner isn't in good focus.

John, I think your right.

I checked a DOF calculator and can't quite figure out how that happened.
