    I took these a while ago. All with A7Rii and 35/2.8. Hope there's not too many. I think I may have posted one R two before too. Anyway, would appreciate your views.

    FWIW, the chess game and the yawn are the best ones for me. Great compositions there and you've shown that the 35mm f2.8 is better than I thought it was.

    You suggest you appreciate my views, don't know if that's still the case after I gave them :).
    • Anyway, I like "I'm not looking", but I think it's too dark, I'd lift the exposure and maybe contrast too.
    • "Ceci c'est une pipe" is a nice one too. Here I would darken the lower part because now the white books distract from the main subject, the man with the pipe. I like the tranquillity of this shot.
    • "Just Browsing" suffers from a bland expression in the girl's face, pity.
    • "FatiguĂ©" is a good catch of course. I'd crop lower and right part to emphasize the yawning woman.
    • "Centre of Attention" is a nice catch. Maybe lighten up the girl with the glasses to attract more attention? Not sure about that.
    • "The Kid" is a great capture. Not sure about the colors, they look a bit harsh and too blue, especially the kid's skin tone doesn't look very appealing.
    B&W works for me here. In general I would have straightened the verticals but that may be just me, most people don't seem to care.
    Of course these are just my opinions, feel free to ignore :).

    They all make me stop and linger, some more than others. I'm not qualified to offer any technical advice. But Snapper and Snapdragon is the one that amuses me the most.

    If I had to choose, "Intense" and "Crossing" would have been the ones I'd pick - I think those are the best composed :)

    Thanks. I quite like that one too. It's probably my favourite.

    A great set, after reading the comments I went back and looked through them again, I like the B&W processing, in the non B&W one the colours seem distracting by comparison.
