What does everyone think?

In addition I think I have gained a finer eye for determining what makes a better image and as such I felt a lot of my older images were lacking. Partly in preparation for my website that I have been working on (although on a bit of a hiatus at the moment) and partly because I wanted to redo older images, I have reprocessed a LOT of my images. Some of whi
