Kiskochas: Awsome photo- thank you for capturing the near disaster! Sean, TriStar-Mistar, Mark Aleane, Mac, and "Unknown poster on May17": I think that you all share the recognition for mentioning the flap setting. The opt flap setting for this aircraft/airport/runway/temperature is Flap 15.x. From the photograph, it appears that the actual flap setting is something less than that figure. If this theory is correct, the photo would suggest a pilot error or a problem with the runway analysis data.
