    Great picture! Nice treatment too! The only slight criticism isn't really anything you could probably help here - the reflection in the round bit where you can see yourself?

    Great pic though and a beast of a machine!

    I kind of like the reflection... makes it a subtle self-portrait. But I understand how it can also be a bit distracting. Thanks for the comments.

    I really like it! And I think that your reflection just adds to the picture!

    Guess it's usefull information to tell you it was shot on B&W film. The only processing I did was a little bit of contrast/level adjustment and fixing of my sloppy scanning job for sqareness.
