    technically, the last one is probably the best. but the first one surely is the most interesting ;).. you have to work on your focus on most of the shots though.

    Hovis as in "we make bread"? ;)

    Cheers - still getting to grips with the 200s AF tbh....

    And Hovis is my nickname from school days - remember the old adverts - "don't say brown say Hovis"?? Well my surname is Brown, some wag came up with it, and it sort of stuck...

    Yes, it looks like some angels still have to LEARN how to fly! :D Not all of them can do it right from the start! And then they are FALLEN angels. Funny find.

    I like the motion blur in the second, though it does not look like they are dancing a particularly Spanish dance - it more looks like Argentinian, i.e. a tango, to me.

    Where did you see the two figures and how big are they? Those that seem to be courting?

    The last one of your daughter and her friend is nice.

    Indeed it was a tango!! :wink:

    The figures in the windows are about life size, about 8 of them along a building - this pair was the best of the bunch!
