This is an establishing shot. From it we see that Washington High School, in orange uniforms, is racing against American, the team in red, white and blue uniforms. It follows the rule of thirds and "intruduces color into a monochormatic scene." On October 14, 2009 Washington's cross country team raced against American. Some races were combined because of American's lack of a JV team.

This is a time captured shot. It shows the "during" of an event. The edge of the grass makes a diagonal that leads your eye in toward the destination of the runners. Jessie and Matt Padilla are not in the lead, however cross country runners are often reminded that the race is won in the second half of the race.

This line shows the rule of thirds and peak of emotion. It is also a closing shot--it shows the end of the race. The varsity race has just ended and the exhaustion and hard effort put into the race shows plainly on Sophomore Mark Leprince's face.
