The ones on the left and in the middle appear to have all the features of being made by Requena. My guess is this photo was also taken in Sweden, after Sabu moved there judging by Sabu's age.

The two on the left look like Requenas from the hardware and sideplates, the one in the far right looks Vergara, again from the sideplates and crown.
