great shots, but #6 looks like it has a bit of movement around the lower face. I can see it was shot at 1/180, was he walking?

It might be that the focal plane is at his ear and his face is in the background, but at f/4.5 this shouldn't occur....can't quite pick the cause, but there's something there.

Thanks for the positive responses...

@ Angry: It's entirely possible that there is some walking-induced motion blur there. Some of these were actually shot in a hangar doorway while it was raining outside so margins were pretty thin. ;)
