    I attended the G20 protest as I was desperate to shoot something exciting after being stuck in Norwich for a year after getting back from Cuba.

    These were all shot on a Nikon D200 with either Nikkor 50mm prime or Sigma 10-20mm. Post work looks intensive but actually is subtle, the camera seems to give me interesting colour.

    This guy kept looking straight at me, not sure if he was one of my old students or something (it could of course be a girl behind the mask and she thought I was beautiful in a very masculine way! ;-) ).



    This guy was in front of me, I wanted to try the 10mm, I liked the result. I was surprised that he kept hold of his copy of the Socialist Paper, my copy got grabbed by somebody and flew through the air.



    This guy was one of the ringleaders I think, he was certainly getting everyone into the spirit of things.



    This girl was very photogenic I thought, although she seemed to dislike being photographed. I managed only a few without certain looks being thrown at me.



    I'm not sure who the guy in white is, he looked like he was dressed in butchers gear. Maybe it was a subtle message to the bankers.



    I'm tired, my comments are awful. I've never been good with writing descriptions.

    Being a fan of V for Vendetta, I must say the first photo is really powerful. These are all great shots though!

    Very alive - almost frightening - the mask is especially haunting. Great shots and up- to- date surely! Street photography at its most pertinent. Congrats. Boxplayer

    What makes #1 for me is the way the guy in the foreground is holding that pen in that threatening manner,almost like a weapon. Good,strong images
