More of a mixed bag this lot -- some strong images and some not so strong.

I really like that cover shot.

Also, since you ask: one thing I noticed about this set that makes it a bit different from the others is the variation in the light in the different photos. Many of your photos have a distinctive, consistent treatment of light, and some of these feel a bit different. (Can't quite put my finger on what the difference is...) Just an observation, not a criticism.

Hi Mark, some more detail to my cryptic comment...

Overall, the images seem to be heading in a number of different directions and are therefore not consistent with the "Voyeur, women, singled out" motif. Or at least my idea of what this motif might mean and what types of images would qualify.

Some images are too ambiguous for me, to the point where I'm wondering what they are about. Sorry, I know that's that last thing a photographer wants to hear about an image.

I'll run through the images, in a terse manner. There are 21 images, which I'll number from 1, starting from the top left of your post.

#4 Young lady smoking ... same idea as #18 but I prefer #18.

#6 Young lady at stadium ... looks like an out-take. Also, this woman is at her work, so doesn't really qualify as "single". In my mind -- and I might be wrong -- I was expecting women in a social type of situation.

Having said this, #14 appears to be a barmaid but it's a great image and that's good enough for me! ;)

#7 At work

#9 At work

#11 Dark-skinned lady ... ambiguous?

#12 Two women at stadium ... ambiguous?

#13 Older lady at dining table ... ambiguous?

#19 At work

#20 Dark-skinned lady ... ambiguous?

#21 This is girl, not a woman (Perhaps you are being subversive here)

I appreciate that taking these images is a tough gig (not war zone tough, but you could get slapped).

Feel free to argue your point that all these images qualify ... not that you'll need much encouragement ;)
