Interesting use of colour popping in 1&3.

Personally I wouldn't have colour popped any of these. My favourite of the 3 is V1.

Yup, V1 also for me. It just seems more dynamic than the other two, possibly because of the definite three people rather than a crowd (V2) or the balanced scattering of people (V3).

I also am not sure about the colour popping of the spectator in V1 ... or, it could be much more subtle than it currently is. And, although the spectator's head adds an interesting counterpoint to the two musicians, it also works without the head at all. That may leave two people (which many say is a no no) but with the empty case in the foreground between the two musicians, it provided a third 'point' and therefore a kind of related triangulation (which sort of brings it back to a three, if you see what I mean?).

Sorry if that description is a bit rambling ... I cant' seem to string a sentence together this morning! Smile

V1 for me as well.
You have a concise message there. Although if your definition of dynamic includes ''motion'' I would say it would be nice to record the right arm of the guitarist moving downwards on the guitar strings.

V2 loses on dynamism because despite the energy displayed by the girl running or the person jumping we see so many other ''subjects'' like the woman helping a young girl to walk - that isn't a display of dynamism, is it? -. On V2 the most dynamic shot would be included in the picture of this photographer focusing on the person jumping.

V3 I recognise some dynamism on the woman standing on the steps on the left but it is rather unmatched with the folk outside the ''PINK'' store or the blue POLICE/ice-cream shop cubicle.

I can use a metaphor understanding these three pictures. I Imagined them as looking at a liquid. V1 is like a liquid well contained in a small glass. V2 is like a fizzy drink, but not as fizzy, in a 2-litre bottle. V3 is like a big liquid spillof teh fizzy drink on the floor... dynamism is lost.

On most creiteria, V1: though V2, with it's blow-up Stonehenge, has a lot of appeal!

I'd vote for either...
