Hi Ian

A nice series when you see these together.

V1 is a little flat and under exposed as it stands. An easy fix to brighten in PS.

It would work in mono too. I would clone to cover that thin line at the top of the frame where the red wall ends. This causes a distraction and being lighter and at the frame edge does tend to pull the eye away from the main subjects.

Regards
Paul

Dont use mono to disguise underexposure in number 1 Ian, - get it exposed right first, then convert.

V1 is a long way under exposed, but correct exposure would make that microphone highlight very bright. V2 is OK but lacks any impact for me. Needs more dramatic lighting. V3 is, by far, the best in most respects other than bright metal work in the top left background. That must go.

As the EXIF data relates to V1, I think, it's got the explanation in there: minus two thirds of a stop... There's no question that it is dark!

I'll add yet another mod, brightened and cropped a little, and with the green thing top centre cloned out. I also dodged the girl's eyes a little: a trick Larry Bartlett recommended for the darkroom, and which is one of the few bits of dodging and burning that is actually easier digitally (as it doesn't involve florist's wire and two little blobs of blu tak...)

I'll refrain from an opinion about which of the versions is best: though they are of realted subjects, they are different shots of different people, and not directly comparable i nthe way that different versions of a single picture would be.
