Thanks for showing: the first image has caught him at a rather ugly
moment: the press will love it ;-) I like the second shot, although I
don't get a real feeling for what the crowd is thinking: doesn't seem
"electric", in the third, you were clearly focused on the lovely blue eye
in the centre: that eye-tracking autofocus will give you away every time
;-) He looks a bit hassled and uncomfortable, but the image is probably
weaker for not having him in focus: great shot of your daughter though ;-)

Thanks for showing: it will be an interesting race to watch to the white
house: I know our PM has butted in already, when he should butt out!!!
