A superb set, Lillian - interesting that you are using manual - I've been experimenting with manual over the last week or so - lots of potential and lots to learn!!

PS - In reply to your question on Food Al Fresco shot: you asked what the vendor had on his/her face:
It's just a cloth under the hat that they put on to protect their face from the extreme heat on the beach...

So far everybody is choosing different favourites which means they are all great.
I love the family group in V3. Exposure looks so perfect - seems your setting choices
are working a treat.

The dad's eyes are unusual. Similar lightness to our B.C. coastal ' Spirit Bear '. Your composition is pleasing. V1 looks like a statue setting. TG

It must have been difficult to expose these correctly given the harsh light but you've done it perfectly IMHO. A wonderful set of images of these majestic big cats, never seen white lions before
