Interesting collection, I like the logic behind them. V1 & V2 for their anonymity, V3 & V4 for their directness...

Good to see you back, Dave, you have been sorely missed.
Maybe you should show us more in mono: these run with the very best of each genre. Hearty congratulations for each one, each worth an upload of its own.

My feeling is that they would work even better - admittedly a very tall order - against black or grey; the paler backgrounds tend to lose the whites on the photos, especially the plume of spray from the water-skiier.

A great action shot to start with Dave, and a lovely portrait too. Really smashing shots. You don't upload much, but when you do----------------- WOW!
All the best to you and yours,

Hey! So happy to see these uploads from you - each of which I think might be worthy of their own upload.
The action in v1 is super and a great comp to boot, the dust in the air gives it some real depth by diffusing the background figures. V2 is also showing some lovely action, and I think maybe a difficult shot to get because of the light. Love the comp in v4.
But it's v3 that I keep going back to look at. You do so shine with your portraiture. Love the tones, the pose, the comp and the wonderful eye contact.
Do more mono, please, these are superb.

An excellent set of pictures Dave - gone back to b&w? They all work well cant pick a favourite very easily but I think Fairfield Church - I like the lead in bridge to the church and the sky was kind to you. About time we had some of these pictures. I might sneak out with you on this next month

Dave - loving the action in V1, I like the almost layered effect that the riders create, looks good in mono! V4 is also very appealing to me, has an air of mystery, I like how the bridge leads the eye to the church, great depth to the sky - thanks for sharing Smile

Really good set of photos Dave. My favourite is the bike shot. Lots of action nicely composed. Although there is a lot of action going on it works well. There is a pleasing sense of depth in the shot. The eye progresses from the lead rider back to the jumpers and then back to the two approaching the jump. Black and white works well too.

Kind regards, Neil
