>You comments and criticisms on the pictures are appreciated.

I'm in the minority here - While I am blown away by what you, T-Max and the
Noctilux were able to do with the light of a cigar lighter and a bit of back
light, I much prefer the boathouse portraits. There is a warmth and a
reality to them that is quite striking.

And I should add that these photos are the first I've seen that have really
allowed me to understand what the Cult of Noctilux is really all about.
Amazing. Now, if I can just sell my 15-year-old son, I may be able to afford
one! :-)
