    Great shot! And what a great day for a run…

    I like the feeling of speed here! What is interesting is that the runners are usually blurred and the people watching are in total focus. The blur of the crowd make me think that they are totally into the spectacle, running fast in their minds as the marathoners go speeding by. Well done!

    Amazing motion shot! Can almost feel the electricity in the air.

    Great job in capturing the feel of the event.

    Definitely captured the pace of motion, but I prefer the traditional one with Times Square. Just one persons opinion. They are both amazing to view.

    I have added the more traditional image of the runners in Times Square to the People and Places gallery

    So you can comment here about either shot.

    Thanks everyone!

    I really like both shots. Good work!

    I like the traditional one better. It’s so NYC – color, crowds, confusion….

  11. Joann says:

    Don’t really know which one I like better. I like the clarity of the traditional photo and the sense of motion in the blog shot. I’ll leave the decision to the artists among you!

    This photo has the feel of a painting, and I especially loved the reddish highlights which seem to enhance the feeling.
