The four young men are a creative sidestep here, but for me number two is the stand-out shot. It really hits home for me, perfectly focussed and although it's a static portrait, it seems so full of life. The hint of a smile, the glint in the eyes, the overall demeanour of the young woman sets my mind running - what does do, what is she thinking about, what secrets does she have? The rendition of the 50-135 is also so beautiful in this shot, what a hell of a lens it is.

Maybe you will think me strange but this is what the image makes me wonder as I look at it.

I like no3, nice variation on your recent output.

Purely subjective, I don't like the tight crops generally, but I do like no1, possibly because it looks more like a vignette than a crop (especially if my laptop screen isn't at quite the right angle, then I lose the detail of the hat!)

I do admire the way you are engaging with your subjects, something I find difficult out on the street.
