Wow, good to see a 10d still taking photos!

I like shot 1 the best - this provides the most interesting background / situational framing.

Shot 2 has great expressions but the loose framing hurts this shot - not a good inclusion of the trailing runner in this one.

shot 3: framing is an issue. You've cropped off the runner at the ankles - which is a bad place to do that. Also having runner in center of frame with dead space before and behind is less interesting. Either frame portrait to get the whole runner in the frame and show the whole body effort, or frame tighter to show the expression/determination.

shot 4: again, good expression but the loose framing hurts. The other pack of runners is too far behind this pair to add much interest to the photo.

shot 5: I keep wanting to like the background but I just don't. Too many distracting elements without a real good view of the boats or the building. The rode and spectator behind the runner doesn't add much.

I would also suggest pulling in the blacks a little - they're a bit washed out in these. Pulling them in will add a bit more punch to the photos.

Thanks for sharing!

JohnG- My 10D will live forever.... though it would be nice to have a "usable" iso setting of 1600- especially when you're using a basic kit lens...!!

I actually liked the trailing runner in the second pic- with a contrast of posture/expression- besides, I know the guy up front and I had to show him leading someone...!

Totally agree with pic 3- he got too close before the old 10D buffer cleared...lol...

As with pic 2- in pic 4 I know the guys and their ego requires them to have someone behind them in the distance...lol..

Pic 5- yes I'd agree totally. In my defence I was hoping to get to the finish line before this guy did... alas,I was 300m away so a quick turn around and fire...!!

As for pulling the blacks in- I see your point- I'm still undecided as to which I prefer...!!

Appreciate the critique....
