This area was very red, as you can probably see. In here you can sit and listen to a commentary about getting old. I just snapped and ran. Don't need any reminding. Grin The ladies in V4 were getting a bit fed up as they were trying to listen intently to every word and a stream of children and itinerant snappers kept coming in and disturbing them. Wink
Quite tricky to get a decent pic of the inside as the red light is just so strong.

Cheers, Chris

V2 for me today Chris
I like the view beyond the red room, with the frozen and moving figures- well composed with the detail from the red room framing the room beyond SmileSmile

Some fascinating unusual captures here. Like Helen I favour No. 2.

V.2 for me, too, ChrisSmile. I can't understand why people with tiny tots in pushchairs, and just walking infants what to visit a place like that, they must get bored to tears, and then start screaming and upsetting those who are interested Sad Carol

I think V2 is the better picture too but the trouble with documentary photography is placement order. I put V1 up first because it sort of sets the scene, then I looked at things from different angles, then with various people. I think I should have left V1 out really but I quite liked the eye contact from the girl, not that you can see much with all the blur. Grin

Clearly technically difficult...light isn't light at all Smile...and each has their own merits, like V3 for the movement Smile

V3 for me - the cool grey plus the motion blur, a hint of someone walking past.

Excellent set (and series), Chris.
V3 for me: in/out, warm/cold contrast comes over best; but all are very involving.

V5 for me, just for contrariness. I like the little chap spread-eagled out on the seat.

v4 for me just to add something to the mix! I like the intensity of the two ladies taking it all in...! That's not to say I don't like the other versions Chris, cos I do!! Smile

I like V2 on the inside ready to escape. I don't think I would want to sit and listen to a commentary about getting old, staying young might be more appropriateWink

I don't need reminding about getting old either! Wink Great set, and rather like V2 as my fave, for the way the people are framed Smile

They do work well as a set, but v2 also is strong enough to stand alone. Coloured lighting is a nightmare to capture. The Harry potter Studio set was bathed in a deep blue light!

Quite interesting set, Chris. Amazing RED, it made the photos surreal.. and getting old is surreal as wellGrinGrin.. but when I can't remember things...
I think that you did remarkablelly well. It looks very dark, and handheld 1/4sec is quite difficult, the images look very clean at such high ISO..

Brilliant photojournalism, Chris Smile

At first V3 was my favourite 'cos of the movement of the humans and the composition. Then I saw V5 and it just killed me. Look at that little one all splayed out as if hit by the heat of the desert!...lol...awesome GrinGrinGrin

Yes, I like v5 too. How nice to be there sprawling on the bench, being able to ignore all that claptrap about getting old 'cos it'll probably never happen. Well, that's what we thought, wasn't it?
