Excellent close-up shots once more, Carol: I am wondering what was the outcome.....looks like a bit of a stalemate.

In V1 we can see the eyeball to eyeball confrontation. V4 - I assume that was the send-off? 'Get out and make sure you don't come back!'

Superb set Carol - lovely detail, textures and tones. Very hard to choose between them but I think V1 has it for me for clarity and composition.

Not totally convinced there shouldn't be a V5, where they are doing their usual act in your images!!! Super set again. V2 for me.

Weīve been meeting here every day
And since this is our last day together
I wanna hold you just one more time
When you turn and walk away,
Donīt look back
I wanna remember you just like this
Letīs just kiss and say good night

Itīs gonna hurt me, I canīt lie
Maybe you meet, you meet another guy
Understand me, oh wonīt you try try try try try...
Letīs just kiss and say goodbye
Barry White - Letīs just kiss and say goodbye
