Hampstead Heath - another race for raise funds for Cancer Research UK.  I couldn't take pictures the previous week, as I was running myself, so I went back to try and capture some of the messages...

Update:28th June

Steve a fellow shutterchancer also went to a race to life, and his picture is here

Great capture, also very moving/touching. Well done.

Barbara: Thank you Mona.

Yup, really sweet and moving. Getting better on the conversion. Mask sent me this and it really helped.
Barbara: Ta... I used the channel mixer dialogue for this pic... but not colour balance this link is useful

This actually reminds me of something Inye (Ijoarts) would shoot. Really liking the B&W and works very well for me as a docu photo shot, which I suspect is something you're quite good at..
Barbara: oooh! a comparison with Inye...I'm honoured!

I like this. The way the eye is drawn to the sign on the main subject's back is quite compelling. Perhaps the depth of field could have been shallower to minimise the distraction of the others because they're a bit messy (like life?) but I doubt I would have spotted this so well done.

Thanks Poweide...yes you're so right about the DOF...I did feel as if I was snooping around taking pictures surreptitiously. I however didn't want to ask anyone, as these would then turn into conscious poses.
