I like this as you feel it tells a story. Here's me asking you on a previous picture if it was Largs I then looked at your portfolio and recognised who you were as I have always loved your street photography. Keep it up.

In ways I like all three of these. I would much prefer them one at a time, though. I don't like the presentation. Frames and text are very Marmite and I would not be using them here. The text serves no purpose.

V1 I like as you have presented it. V2 is also very strong but the horizon leans to the left alarmingly and you really should correct that.

V3 I also like in general. A bit more room at the bottom, though.

V1 is a very clever observation. We follow the lady's gaze. And she relates easily to the people on the jetty because the only hints of colour there are red and blue, matching the colours she is wearing.

I'm not sure that the view of the distant town on the left adds anything, my own inclination would be to crop off everything left of the start of the jetty. But that's just how I see things. It would be different, not necessarily better.

V2 doesn't really engage me. Scrolling it up until the water surface meets the top of the screen though, there's a very small tilt but it is slight. It's the sloping land horizon that creates an optical illusion of a more alarming tilt, I think.

V3 does though. Strong, expressive body language, motion blur in that tentative foot, and lovely muted colours. Except for that bright blue umbrella, which I would tone down because it really does grab far too much attention and draw the eye away from the characters who matter.
thanks for crits
