v3 I like best, well composed and the shallow DOF lets you concentrate on the eyes!

This is, as Jennifer suggested, quite a set of images. Really remarkable. I like V4 the best. See all the wings.

Only seen a couple this year despite an abundance of other types. A varied set of angles, Trev, with v4 looking best for me.
