I was up in Portrush for my hols for a few days and took these snaps with my K5 and Q
It was nice to shoot proper street for a change as opposed to my posed street portraits

Very nice Alistair, as per... my partic faves 8, 11 and 13... 8 for the unusual light, 13 for incongruity of the moment, and 11 for the framing... 3 kids flinging themselves like lemmings to what appears a certain death on the rocks below (I assume there’s some water down there somewhere though!?!) whilst their mates carry on as normal...

11 is the gem for me. Subject, composition, light, dynamics - it's all there. A true classic.

A few people on Facebook didn't like the construction in the left hand side (image 11) but it couldn't be helped

When I opened the thread and saw the top of the first image I though it'd be a nice scenic landscape but then I saw the whole thing

That's certainly my favourite from these, excellent timing.

Interesting... don’t mind it at all...

Firstly, it was there, and gives clear context to the scene (urban)
Secondly, you’ve used it as the lead in to the kids jumping (from which they’re nicely separated)...

Works really well imho...

Really like this set as some made me laugh, some thoughtful and some just well timed and executed like the opening image with the legs. Top work
