these have been great fun to see,,,
not sure this one does anything for me
perhaps a bit more of the stars face would have made me happier

The tables are turned.... His turn to look worried.... That guy behind is just waiting for the nod from the jilted barmaid, and he's reaching into his inside pocket....

An interesting sequence, Bill, but unfortunately an insight into the workings of your psyche that has left me with a vague need to seek some form of counselling...

Another super framing, Bill. I like that musical phrase as well.
Thank you for the appreciation! Yes, it was for a local TV channel.

The most sinister of the series... a cold war message drop?

"The Visitor"? This works best for me...the concentration is on the man in the bg about to either pay for a round or shoot the barmaid...the head is just a visitor to the scene...could be the start of an interesting series GrinGrinGrin

Oh I really like fact I think it's the best of the series. He looks like an actor in an old James Bond film. Great crop!

Now we see who the real bad guy is. Not my favorite of the series but it does take the story down a different avenue......Sandy

A nice essay from the one image Bill, I'll be back in later to catch up with the story which looks interesting.

This is a good series of B/W pictures.

The gaze still is past the lens and maybe just maybe you lifted your head to the left and pressed the shutter, your elbows braced on the table to steady the camera and make the sitter look at you and not the camera.
Marvellous picture story Bill, many of us will think about the crop tool now I hope and not just use the full image as frames in the camera.

Just goes to show what one can do with some creative work and some clever cropping.
