Be very curious to know if you like any of these. Feel free to critique these images as harshly as possible. Thx!

I like 1 and 3, especially 3. I think that the static background with the moving people works well.

The other two are interesting-- almost dizzying! I'm assuming that you zoomed while the shutter was open? I am really ambivalent about intentional camera movement with people as part of the subject. At first they look like the shutter was left open too long accidentally, but after you look at it a more impressionistic feel comes through. Pretty cool stuff and certainly fun to experiment with.

Was kind of shocked when I first saw number one as I haven't seen something like this. After looking at them for a bit I like number one, but I'm unsure about the color of the sky. I'm assuming you have some sort of IR filter on your lens or something.

Number two I don't really care for. After seeing your sharp in focus walls I prefer them to be sharp and not blurry.

Number three I don't really like the placement of the people, there's an awful lot of them, and they take up such a small space compared to the imposing brick wall to the left.

Number four I actually like as well. The sky is a better color, and the blurry motion makes it feel more like a fantasy world.

Thanks for the comments!
Just a polarizing filter on the lens for some shots. Sky is whacked from artificial light and time of day.
