Here's mine, though different perspective:

It was an RZ in normal shutter mode; I opened too early and closed too late. You can see the next step and the foot is a little transparent. Should have used B-mode.
Overnight I realized this too... B is the secret... With a rangefinder watch the pedestrian walk into the frame, keeping beat with the walk, Open after foot goes down and Close before foot goes up... Let the latitude of film make up for the random shutter speed.
