#5 for me also. It has that fashion look to it doesn't it, almost like a bill board picture for a brand selling a suit etc

Very nice !

wow, excellent series. Love each one ... if I have pic faves I would say 5, 1 and 4 in that order.. but there is something special about each one that I like very much.

Ah how I miss Melbourne

Great shots, love the motion in #1. #5 is probably my favourite as well.

What's the EXIF on #6, neat to see that much blur in the daytime, must have been f32!

Thanks for all your comments, looks like #5 is the winner

Even f32 would not have achieved that look even if the DA15 was capable of it, no where near enough, this was a bright Australian summer day @ 1pm. The "secret" was a ND64 filter + f/22, a mini tripod, and an obliging wall.

How long did you stand there pointing the camera at the homeless guy in #4 before saying to yourself...."time to get the f@#$ out of here"?
Nice work

Very, very nice series with 4,5 and 6 as my favorites. The massive amount of movement blur is really spectacular in number 6. And you don't need me to tell you what there is to like in 4 and 5!
