Nicely done Rog !

It looks ever so slightly soft to me (not from a focus point of view)... maybe could take a bit of sharpening ?

Sorry for the delay in answering.  My dad went down hill all of a sudden after a major op,   unfortunatly died this morning.

Thanks for the comments,   ill have a look at a bit of sharpening at another time although my sharpening skills seem to make no difference or shows too much i can never seem to get the inbetween right.  So i dont nomally touch sharpening on my images.

Many commiserations Rog. Theres not really a right time of year to loose a nearest and dearest but this is definitely one of the wrong times.
