Nicely done Dave. Crowd box ticked and well focused on the two PCSO's. Out of interest, the one at the front, is that a youngish looking adult, or is it maybe a child dressed as a PSCO for the parade as she looks quite young?

Thank you Ian, she was actually a young PCSO and small too.

Hot – Looks like a nice hot day for some kayaking and paddle boarding! Makes me want to get my kayak out.

Light – Can see where you are coming from. Nice composition.

Crowd – Nice image, the PCSO’s pop out from the crowd, fits the theme nicely.

I did have other plans for decay, but yesterday I did my first ever photoshoot with the lovely Lo and the sun came out for a bit so I took a few shots of Lo and then noticed the writing on the left DECAY :D

Great photo and very original, it looks as though the session went really well.
DECAY - I really like this shot. Her pose is great, and you got the theme in there too!!
Nice shot Dave, great for the theme. Hope your photo session went well ! Looking at the submission it looks like it was a success
Thank you folks, been so busy editing too from the shoot.

Decay
Very nice Dave, it all fits in well together. I think you've positioned Lo just in the right place, any further right would have put her head in the middle of the red area, which would have looked a bit weird.

You've done well to make the officers the main point of focus, it works.

Decay: nice shot, I really like the simplicity of the composition and getting the theme in as well has nailed it.
Thank you both, it was fun doing the shoot and we are both looking forward to the out side one soon.

Very creative indeed Dave!:clap:
Terrific image with great colours and the model's pose is spot on.
Very clever to incorporate the graffiti into the shot too....a perfect fit for the theme!
It has a real 'no nonsense' attitude about it....which can only be a good thing!
Thank you Gareth, Io was really great fun to photography and she loves the images I sent her and we can`t wait till we do the out door shoot.

Oh how very convenient that was for decay, eh :)

Good spot there - I like this, and also the other images you took with the model. I may have tried to make the contrasting colours a bit more punchy against the model's clothes and path etc, but that's just a personal thing. Good pose and nicely taken.

Top stuff Dave

Great spot Dave, great image too, Lo looks very relaxed too and that comes across, nice work!
Thank you Daniel, I made a mistake as her name is Io spelt with i and not l.

Another Ronseal shoehorn shot, Dave. :giggle: It does what it says on the tin shutter. :giggle:

Nice portrait shot of the young lady. You've picked a nice spot and a good full-length pose shot.
Thank you Stan, it was only in the editing that I noticed the word decay in the graffiti. As today is a Free theme I hope to get a good shot of one of the vocalists too :D

I don’t think it’s a shoehorn at all, saw your pics earlier in the week you have done a good job with them well done Dave
Thank you very much for the kind words Allan.

I was going to put a shot of Roxi in, but as it was also a macro/close up I thought I`d better get my technique done instead. I had a busy day photographing Roxi with the X-T3 + XF90mm f2 and this lens can focus very close indeed.

Carlsberg - urgh - I had a can of that last weekend that wasn't cold and was served in a plastic "glass". Probably the worst beer I've tasted in a long time.

Nicely shot here though :)
