I think you have failed in this one, the composition is way out. The subject is running out of the image and you have cut her feet off.

this works for me..the solitude of the `long distance' runner and the couple `happy' in their own environment Smile

Dear Colin,
With all due respect, i think your comments are more about yourself than about photo.
Best regards,

The centre of interest is indeed the Pont des Arts, at least for those who know this pedestrian bridge in the heart of Paris. For several years back, the custom has been for strollers to leave a padlock as a testimony of love. By now their number has become absolutely overwhelming, and this is what the shot reveals. Similarly, the overall scene is typical of what one would observe strolling on the bridge. Now, even if you don't know this tourist attraction, it is all there because the scene is further enhanced by the static couple and the dynamic runner. Bravo, une très belle photo d'un de mes lieux préférés. Bien à vous,

Isn't it strange how things come about. I wonder who and why the first lock was put there and why it continued? Very interesting. I wonder if the couple looking over the bridge left a lock.......Sandy

As Himself says, very Parisian...
I looked at this earlier, liked it a lot but was in a hurry to get out. Had to come back.
There's a lovely contrast of stillness and motion, of looking around and total self-absorption. Do joggers ever look around them?
It's important that you focused on the couple, they are a delight. His folded arms, her upturned foot.
The jogger is streaking (well not in the modern sense) past our eyes, we do not need to see all of her, she'll be gone in a flash. I assume that you stood and waited for a passer-by? My only criticism would be that a slower shutter speed, maybe 1/60 or 1/100 second, would have given more satisfying motion blur as a contrast to the couple.
PS - Jogger running into frame = a safe, undemanding image. Jogger running out of frame = questions, tension. You timed it perfectly.
Cheeky! but I love the contrast hard bottom (no pun intended) & soft top half, thanks, Si
