A few faces from the service in the Friary Gardens, Richmond.
All C&CS welcome
Thanks for looking
V1 stands out but also like V4 very much...a touch of `young' and `old' but both very brave men
Fantastic set here mate! Take care with blurred foreground objects and people, either remove completely or make a thing of them by framing it where say we are looking between heads. If only a little showing can be a bit distracting and therefore detracts from the rest. Also v6 for me dont feel I need to see the top of hat but more below the chin - just a small thing but feel would improve.
Very moving - particularly V5 with its mix of age and youth.
This is a particularly tricky subject because one is not free to move around, select the ideal viewpoint.I see the point made by Frordrangk, but I reckon you've isolated subjects well - the blurred distractions are also a part of the context and atmosphere.
v1 by far the strongest for me, Den. A good diagonal to the composition, well isolated main subject, the red poppy and beret stand out well, and the two blurred heads are well-arranged with the back of one on the left and front of the other on the right.
I love the way you captured those facial expressions, Den. Excellent series!
V1 does stand out, for the expression of contemplation as much as anything else - since all seven images are very fine: youth and age, as mentioned, and the strong Ghurka presence is much appreciated. Of course, Catterick is not far away.
Regarding the slightly out-of-focus figures in V1: this is reportage, not portraiture; the other figures give context and meaning. For me, they also show that the veteran is wrapped up in his own thoughts while in the midst of a crowd.
very good captures v1 v2 stand out for me , excellent work capturing a very tricky subject .
A wonderful set of images, Den, v1 is superb, a great candid shot with perfect dof, a cracker mate.
A quality set of moving images
Interesting comments and I think Bill has summed it up. I'm not concerned by the people who are out of focus. V1 is wonderful - the look on his face almost revealing his thoughts.
Fascinating shots... You've captured some tremendous moments here... IB
An excellent set of images - very thoughtful faces.
