    Like them Ian-real street photography truly spontaneous each one telling its story. You are getting very good at this. I”m  to scared for this–scared I might come into contact with a handbag. Good stuff–lets see some more please.-So not posed.

    IAN   you and People   are a great match.  Super photo”s to describe a lovely sunny afternoon in the park. The mono is excellent in gradation also . Just how dare you go up to strangers and take their photo”s–a real   pro  you are Ian and I think  they are all good. Luv the bowling and the fourth is a great pair of bouncers–the chaps in the centre I  mean.!!

    “Going for the shot” has HCB lines!

    Mervin, like that, all the fans clamouring! cropping the “bottom”  off would remove the distraction of the (almost) cheeky young lady/bloke!

    Merv >>> Really like ‘Bring The Noize’ – you captured the action really well. The shot is well exposed, too, which the bright sky must have made a bit trickier. And speaking of the sky, it’s a good ‘un, and adds interest at the top of the frame.

    Your park pictures are better than mine Ian. I like the one of the guy shaking hands the best. caught the moment.
    I like your band picture Mervin. Does the sky reflect the music? it’s not the Zombies palying is it? I also think you’ve caught the dancers well showing their expressions and the peak of the action with the band in the background.

    John >> I can honestly say, well almost honestly, that I didn’t notice 😉

    Ian >> I have to admit that the sky isn’t ‘as shot’, I hope I’m forgiven! It was such a warm, hazy day that no matter what I did the sky just looked uninteresting. So I nicked a sky shot I took last month at Kelsall as I really wanted something to give a hint of menace to the top half of the image.

    Peter >> It was a strange day! My girlfriend took me to meet her Dad who plays drums in a 60’s band (the one the couple were dancing to) and it happened that a young band were having a music video shot the same day…hence the zombies. As far as photo opportunities were concerned, I reckon I dropped lucky.

    I don’t think you can see on the reduced version of Bring the Noize, but the drummer was looking straight at me and that sold me on the shot as soon as I got home and noticed it.

    Very nice and very interesting–Mervin–and I was thinking it was a Selfie!!!  Good on yer with the sky—“We came to Dance” expresses my recent point some where.  Pin sharp foreground main image aspect–against a well  OOF background–doesn”t that look good. Well done.

    Yes eye contact jis a great pull in a picture. I like the atmosphere. Darkening the sky does add to the drama. Cropping will make your drummer relatively bigger and make the eye contact even more obvious.  But by all means leave things as they are. I’m really looking forward to seeing what you put into our competitions.

    Have put this in really to make a point. Taken at the Crewe Festival with about one second opportunity. In fact a “snatch” photo. Now never being one to be controversial -can I suggest that these “snatch” photo”s of people are not portraits. Should we as serious amateurs out of respect for real portrait photography not ourselves enter snatch photos as portraits.????
