Like both Ed but V1 is pin sharp, these are not easy to photograph because of the butterfly and wind movement, nice one mate!

Four damsels in one shot was you blatantly showing off, it's just like Christiano Ronaldo showboating and doing all those step overs and back heels!SmileTongue

Remember - more is lessGrin
This Adonis is a gorgeous little fellow. Think V1 just gets the vote. One Adonis in the frame is enough.

I would just move him backwards a little out of center and closer to the frame. Otherwise it's perfection. TG
