Three interesting shots, and I the only improvements I can think of would be implemented at the shooting stage.

V1: If you had crouched/sat/lain on the ground beside the people with the leaflets I think you would have gained not only a more 'personal' perspective, but it would have made them the main focus of the photo with the crowd in the background as a kind of secondary focus.

V2: I think more could have been done to visually link those red telephone boxes and the girl's red dress on the ground. At the moment, the people standing/sitting near the group are quite distracting, and to me the two boys with their backs to the scene seem to 'block' the left side of the photo. I'm not sure what was further to the left, but maybe if you had moved to the right and shot towards the phone boxes it may have concentrated the focus on the people on the ground again.

V3: I'm not really sure what's going on here. Eye contact between the two would have been nice, although I realise that was probably very hard to get as this wasn't a posed photo. Also, I think backing up a bit this time and getting more of the couple's bodies (or even just her hands) in the shot would have explained what was happening a bit better. I like the way the crowd is watching them though Smile

I hope this helps!
