What a superb image Ron. The steps. The running shadow and the dark doorway. You reacted well to the possibility and captured a scene that really fires the imagination. The composition works well with the light on the steps leading the viewer towards that shadow. Congratulations on the EC. Have my award as well.

Fabulous shadow of the running woman, the light across the steps is an added value in an already great image.
We have to wonder what she was running to or from?
We'll never know now.

A strong sense of fleeing from something unknown (to us). Superbly captured. You couldn't have staged this any better, Ron.
Despite the rising diagonal of the stairs, there is a feeling of fear in her shadow.
