    Here are a couple of shots from the Marathon. Of all the photos I took, the second one is my favorite.

    Boy - they run FAST! Whoosh. And gone!

    :D

    Nice idea to capture their action and speed like it. I doubt they recognise them individually though ;)

    And you had a very nice vantage point for your photos, including all the DC-sights! (Well, two of them...)

    Thanks for the comments! I am working on photos of people in action. That is why I thought of the blurred effect. I am going to see if I can catch people around DC performing different things.

    You should! I am already curious to see your pictures. They are always so good! (And I like to recognise places ... you know, I have only been - and for the first time ever - to DC this year in April).

    Well done. I like the compo on these, and the blurred effect on the runners.

    I agree with the second one as my favorite. Great idea as mentioned and the background is amazing of course

    I like these shots and you've got a great background. Feel free to call me uncreative, but I prefer to see some faces in photographs. Perhaps if you had a rear-curtain flash, then you could get the motion and some faces.

    IMO it would have been better if you panned it (blurred out the background) instead of actually blurring the runners.

    I like #1. You got all these blurry runners and then in the background on the right is a heavy person just standing there... :p. I think it's great.
