I picked this out of your thumbnails because I have just seen the original engine which was used as a test before the Concorde was built. It is in a Museum attached to the ss Great Britain at Bristol. On a notice it says in 1843 the ss Great Britain took 14 days to sail to New York - It had Steam or Sail according to the weather and was cutting edge technology of the day. Then the Boeing 747 could fly the distance in 7 hours, but the Concorde could do the journey in just over 3 hours. Your photo is fine, and do you believe it, I photographed the notice but not the engine on my recent visit! John
This may be old history, but I looked at your portfolio and this one stood out as being unusual and I wondered whether it had been taken with flash. The brown ones at the bottom look strange and I wondered whether if you cloned them out it would help the picture. Having a space at the bottom where they are might improve the photo still more. Just a thought!

Thanks for commenting on The Fushia & The Bee. The processing consisted of Spot healing white spots (rain?) on the flowers and cloning out a prominent green leaf at the bottom of the picture that 'took the eye'. I have had a look at your portfolio above and think you have an interesting style, with some very nice shots, but (there is always a but!) the Gatekeeper Butterfly does not appear to be sharp, probably not enough depth of field.

Your type of photography is totally different to mine, but I am instrigued by your Smoke Pictures. They make some remarkable patterns. The nearest to some of my photos would be your flowers and frosted leaves. I found the frosted leaves one almost two pictures, although the contrast between the two colours is good, the way the dark one cuts across the bottom of the frame bothers me. I would have preferred concentration on one leaf or the other in close up, and concentration on the frost.
