Hi Don,
I like the feel of the B&W better then the colour. Maybe because in some
instances  the B&W creates a kind of realism, even though we see in colour.
And "the loose cropping" is perfect as it retains the openness of the park
environment. Particularly when one does an early morning walk or run
themselves. Personally I like cool and quiet the less bodies the better and
that's why I try to get out the door by 6-6.30 each day.

In your pictures I feel the coolness of the morning air and look of the open
space because for me they depict what my mornings start out like. Beside it
clears the sleep fog and get's one ready for tackling a new day.

However now I'm out door! Thanks for setting the tone to get out! ;-)

Good ones.
