Wow, once again, many congrats on the acceptance of your photograph! Really nice pictures you have here, many thanks for sharing them. Number four sure is nice one... very clear, excellent skin colour, nice photo... in your second batch, I really liked number #2 (B&W). Excellent work!!!

Lovely mix of images Spy, congrats on the may remember we fell out a bit a good while ago after I commented about "practise sessions" pics being "same old"?, I'm eating my words now!, these are a great Photojournalist style told tale. Well done. Kind regards Graham

Congratulations Kevin.

I agree with NatGeo, that b&w shot was great. and the b&w in the 2nd set is equally good. loved the whole set though, a very different style and interesting way to document this type of event. the reflections shot at the end i like as well.

I really like the moods you have created with the shots. The B+W shots remind me of old prize fighter shots - dressing room before the fight - concentrating/getting ready. Finding the silence and introspection in a crowded and noisy environment.

And congrats as well.
