    Hello Will,

    Not only am I a lover of old and interesting motor cars but also one of old and interesting aeroplanes - and few could be quite as interesting as a Swordfish, one of which launched the torpedo which disabled the rudder mechanism of the Bismark as a prelude to her eventual sinking.

    I presume that this photograph is a scan of either a colour negative or a colour transparency and its quality is simply superb with excellent light and perfect colours. But not only that: to capture a high speed shot like this with a film camera (and, therefore, limited sensitivity) is remarkable. Looking at the "blurring" of the propeller blades, I reckon your exposure was probably somewhere between 1/500th to 1/2000th second so you must have used a pretty wide aperture. So very well done you for managing such a stunningly clear and sharp image of this iconic flying machine!

    Brilliant!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Will,

    This is a splendid photograph with lovely colours and even more remarkable that it is the result of a scan from a Boots colour transparency: we are used to seeing very reasonable scans from Kodachrome but this one is excellent!

    Of course, the presence of the magnificent Talbot on the quayside really makes it all the more appealing to me - that is a stunning motor car. In fact, just to check that you were right in your research (which, of course, you were!) I had a little look myself and discovered that a very similar Talbot of same model and age sold in November at auction in London for over £1.3 million! Needless to say, I've never had the privilege to ride in a Talbot like that but I can confess to having had a drive of a Daf Daffodil - a very cute little car which was blessed with a strange automatic transmission which worked by having the drive transmitted to the rear wheels via a V-belt running between two pulleys whose diameters were variable - a rather ingenious "stepless" ratio change - but just a little unnerving to drive.

    So, yes, Will, I enjoy the foreground very much! But the remainder of this photograph is also a beauty too with splendid buildings seen across the harbour and through a lovely maze of masts and rigging. Fine light and colours, excellent sharpness and bang-on exposure.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.
