A bit too dark Ian, though the dark atmosphere with the shadows throws up a good effect...V1 also looks to lean a bit to the right.

Hi Ian,
I really like V1 and V3 in this series.
V1 has a great potential, with the people almost lined up and standing out of the crowd in the BG.
the main issue I see in this series is the lack of contrast (both in tones and colors), and all the pictures appear quit flat.
You don't give us infos about how the pictures were taken, so it is difficult to say why.
For V1 I'd suggest to increase the contrast and to convert it in B&W since the color is not adding too much (see mod).
V2 doesn't look really appealing since it is lacking a subject, something that catch the eye.
In V3, besides the lack of contrast, the not complete shadow of the two persons detracts something to what could be an interesting composition.
For this one in particular, for the future I would suggest to use a larger aperture to have a shallower DOF so to bring out better the main subject from the BG.

Hope it helps

regards

francesco
