V1 stands out but also like V4 very much...a touch of `young' and `old' but both very brave men Smile

Fantastic set here mate! Take care with blurred foreground objects and people, either remove completely or make a thing of them by framing it where say we are looking between heads. If only a little showing can be a bit distracting and therefore detracts from the rest. Also v6 for me dont feel I need to see the top of hat but more below the chin - just a small thing but feel would improve.

Very moving - particularly V5 with its mix of age and youth.
This is a particularly tricky subject because one is not free to move around, select the ideal viewpoint.I see the point made by Frordrangk, but I reckon you've isolated subjects well - the blurred distractions are also a part of the context and atmosphere.

v1 by far the strongest for me, Den. A good diagonal to the composition, well isolated main subject, the red poppy and beret stand out well, and the two blurred heads are well-arranged with the back of one on the left and front of the other on the right.

V1 does stand out, for the expression of contemplation as much as anything else - since all seven images are very fine: youth and age, as mentioned, and the strong Ghurka presence is much appreciated. Of course, Catterick is not far away.
Regarding the slightly out-of-focus figures in V1: this is reportage, not portraiture; the other figures give context and meaning. For me, they also show that the veteran is wrapped up in his own thoughts while in the midst of a crowd.
Excellent work.
Regards
Bill

Interesting comments and I think Bill has summed it up. I'm not concerned by the people who are out of focus. V1 is wonderful - the look on his face almost revealing his thoughts.
