Judges Comment

Nice atmosphere and great composition is what draw us to this photo. Considering nothing much is happening but it is one of those sceneries that make you want to grab your camera, this is the way to capture such a place and moment. Perfect timing and composition.

Photographers Comment

Thank you for awarding me this Mark of Excellence! It is indeed a thrill to receive this accolade along with so many other great photographs. My name is Doug Frost and I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. Photography is my avocation and my passion and I shoot whenever I can. I shot this by the lagoon on the grounds of the Marin County Civic Center in Terra Linda early one morning. I noticed a couple of interesting trees by the lagoon footpath. Some joggers were running along it for their morning exercise, so I positioned myself strategically between the trees and waited for them to pass by. This is one of my two favorite shots from that morning. I took it with a Sony A850 with a Zeiss 24-75mm lens at ISO 500, f/5.0 and 1/320 sec. The raw file was minimally processed in Photoshop CS5.
