Very nicely done Rog.. very nice indeed !!

I would probably crop out the dark bands top and left but that's just been picky.

Looks like you boys had fun.

That's super-deep! Maybe a touch too contrasty

Nice one Roger. Are you going for some colour?

It looks like somebody has run an unsharp mask over it with a large mask. The contrast between the dark bits and light bits looks forced..
