    ... and yes it was a long time coming.

    Waiting 1.

    I was tempted to crop out the drain pipe etc. but then one loses the context of two boys getting a good view by sitting in an upstairs doorway.

    Excellent shots, Mike. Very good clarity, tonal range, and interesting subjetcs. Well caught.

    Yes Mike, well up to your usual high standard.

    I like the vignette on the first and second shots too.

    Ditto exactly what the guys have just said above.

    Personally, I love the story that the third one tells. Each of us will react differently to each of the images. I think there's such a strong narrative in the third one that, for me, it just takes a couple of extra steps up the ladder.

    Thanks guys. I'd forgotten about these, and was pleased to re-discover them when trawling through my catalogue. For once I had the right lens attached!!
