I'm glad this is taking off and people like it. Joost, as it seems feels right at home, as do Loretta and Armando. Excellent contributions so far.

Here are two I made last night

Not so brave, she is my friend's (the Artist) assistant and she is running to tell him something as he exits , stage right with his Canon  ;).  I do have shots of her coming towards me also  :)

The artist exits the stage leaving this excelllent photo op unused, but it would have never happened had he not gone. An interesting photo, interesting background as to what happens and the question remains, is it better to  be the artist or is it better to observe the events taking place because of the artists' presence (and his leaving)?

50mm f1,4?

Nice narrative. After they came back from the beach where Armando photographed them these girls apparently went for a drink in Tilburg :)

Buddy, I never really shoot the Installations so for me it is everything else going on.  That is what he wants me to do  :) .

 I was surprised that he actually had another professional Photog there.  He normally prints huge, and sells, also does a book of the Installation.  I'm really a Sports , action, shooter so see a pretty girl running and I just shoot  ;) .

No, I cropped it a bit for a better framing, this is the 200mm f/2.0 Ai.            Very good narrative suggestion.  Does remind me I should visit the City-beach here ;)

An addition from me.

Taken with my Nikon D3 and 28mm f3,5 PC lens, slightly shifted. Th emeeting between dog (Lumi) and crow went very controlled and unpredictable. The crow wa snot really impressed and Lumi not really interested in chasing birds so when the crow finally decended I had plenty of time to set up for this shot.
