Looks like I'm the first.

Good morning David - congrats on the freelance work, may be the start of something!

This is a cracker!
David Johnson: Too right, all the cash earmarked for photo upgrades already!!!!! Maybe showed my innocence in these matters by saying yes to the first offer!!!!
Congrats on the freelance job! It's well deserved. I love the sense of speed in this image. Well done as always.
David Johnson: Thanks Alison, certainly made all muy chums either say What! or laugh, in equal measure!~
Very nice David, amazed to see so much traffic in the peak at that time of morning, Congratulations on getting the freelance work as well.
David Johnson: Just white van man taking essential bread rolls to Castleton, think this may be my one and only shot at the big time....

So many different lines of texture and colour converging in this one - and at such speed! (:o)
David Johnson: No one hangs about on this stretch Roz, its a place that unfortunately gives born again bikers overdoses of gravel rash...

This is quite an exciting photo. I think you have done a great job for the AA, or DHL or whoever it may be, it certainly can't be Parcel Force, they don't drive this straight on *any* roads! Just up my street this though. Top stuff.
David Johnson: Cheers mate bit bigger company than any you mentioned but have to sit on it til campaign goes active in May! May try more of this half light stuff with NDs, curious things happen!
Super light trails David and the atmosphere of early morning in winter comes across well.
David Johnson: Cheers, sent out to snap dramatic roads and Mother Nature coughs up some winter gloom.

Good boy, using a tripod! It shows too. This is crisp and well composed. Congrats on the mystery job as well!
David Johnson: There you go, tripods, what are they good for, absolutely not....no, I must get one of those gorillapod thingys, probably suits my informal snapping better.
If this doesn't get you more commissions then there ain't no justice.
David Johnson: Ha ,time will tell.

excellent, liking the hdr look...
David Johnson: Just a tweak of photomatix, have been blending bits of hdr back into 'normal' stuff in a 'working at the lab late last night' kind of way

Good to have you back David,I like this one matey,well done on the freelance stuff.
David Johnson: Have drawn up a wish list of new kit already with the money I yet don't have with a view to doing things not yet done!
Excellent shot, good luck on more jobs
David Johnson: Ive already spent the 'virtual' dosh from the snaps I did,just waiting for Group4 and the bag of cash to turn up.
