I think what it really says is that you are a damned good photographer yourself and you don't give yourself nearly enough credit for it. I have always said your photography is up there with the best of them and I think this proves it. Photoshop really can make a difference when used properly and you shouldn't forget that the majority of what you see around the web will be processed very similarly to what I have done here. So bare that in mind when you compare your work with others because you are not seeing the original unedited image most of the time and you need to factor that in when judging your own work against others.
It really has been a pleasure to watch your progress over the last few years and many of this years and previous years work have been superb. Duxford of all places is a very challenging venue for photography but you wouldn't know it to look at this.
