Really like V1, it is hilarious. I wondered about the flowers, tried looking at it minus the flowers and then with. Being I love the craziness of this and their expressions I am thinking without the flowers. It seems to draw my eyes away from the fellows face. I love it in colour but would likely like it in mono too. V2, has good clarity but says nothing to me. I'm interested in seeing what others will think regarding the flowers.

Looking again at this, I can see just the man, the flowers and the newspaper being an image of it's own.

V1, it works well in colour. Its a scene thats engaging, I want to look around, get involved. V2 is a bunch of depressed looking people sitting on the ground, - completely different.


They have the trademark effect that I think I will call the "Youmi" effect that people will either love or hate.


regards


Willie

V1 draws you into the performance due to the stance and expression of the actors. A good illustration of a Fringe activity.

V2 is maybe part of a performance (I can't tell/don't know for sure) but the actors are not engaging. Perhaps better to wait for a more interesting expression. Getting down to their level would help too. As it stands it has the look of the camera going off at the wrong moment. Not one I would have kept.

V3 at first looks like a good series but in the top two shots the interest lies only with the performer and is the subject to concentrate on. They weaken the effect as a series.
The bottom shot is the strongest because of several elements: The expression of the performer and the gaze of several bystanders, not least tht of the young boy. A fine shot that stands on its own.

Interesting what people think. Most look without seeing.

V1 is amusing, and V2 mysterious.

V3 adds to the story of your post yesterday...

V1 reaches out and connects directly to us as viewers. The character on the right seems to be trying to break out of my monitor screen. And it has the magic of three - three subjects always seem to balance.

V2 inhabits its own introspective world. The fact that passers by are anonymous, cut off at the waist, not relating to the performers, is relevant. It's good - but V1 is the one that grabs me by the throat.

V3 works with and without the caption. I'm imagining my own speech bubbles...

V1 is very good indeed. Even with your rather strange processing, this one works extremely well because it has strength, impact and an excellent three subject compositional triangle without the background intrusion.

V2 is not in the same class, coming in as a snapshot of people on the ground. V3 not my kind of thing in terms of presentation.
