Easyrider is a film I know. And I love the prop and the 3D ness lacking in the mummy.

Good work Dave, bang on theme. Just to echo what was said above, the Mummy image is well lit and has some rich colours in there, that would be my pick.

The colours in both Mummy shots are great, managing the light/reflections can be tricky but these work great.

Agree with others the lighting on "The Mummy" is really well handled. Was it a conscious decision to not align the right hand part with it slightly angled. Your other choices are great too

The mummy shot is my favourite but they are all nicely done. As others have said, you have handled the lighting well.

So I was wondering what sort of shot I could do for half then I took this shot of Susie, so a Half face portrait.

Great capture! perfect focus on the eye, great depth of field and fits the theme. Monochrome suits it perfectly too.

Nice portrait of Susie, She doesn’t look to pleased with you or maybe she’s just distracted with something outside the window

Thank you Allan, Susie loves to watch the shadows move across a blind when the sun is out.

Nice composition and as others have said, the B&W suits it too. I'd be tempted to trim a mm off the bottom to exclude that tiny OOF whatever-it-is on the bottom edge, and to crop the top by a little more to balance it and give a little more "space" for Susie to look into. But that's a really minor thing.

That's really nice!

Composition, expression, gaze, DOF, tones... all work well. She looks really thoughtful, or that's how it comes across to me.

Great composition, what's not to love with a dog image gazing across a scene. The lighting and DOF is spot on, a minor crop from the bottom to even the flow of her coat would be the only mod I see to enhance it further

I've seen many a Susie portrait over the years. This is a beaut, nice light, nice detail.

Thank you folks, and for the tips on the crop.
