Doug, you did a great job putting together the entire piece . . . photography, editing, music, etc. Congratulations. The transitions (cuts & dissolves) were subliminal, which I cannot find fault in.

I've hiked many of the areas in your video, and you brought it to life again . . . many thanks.

Doug:

I've also been to all those parks...nice job capturing them...especially your choice of using the early/late day low angle sun. Best shot of the whole tape: the low angle silhouette time-lapse with the clouds rushing by...making it feel like the dark cliffs were racing through space. Great effect!

The only transition that didn't totally work for me was the dissolve to the tracking shot of the buzzard, and only because the rapidly moving video was a bit jarring as the dissolve took effect. It stuck out in an otherwise nicely crafted piece.

Good work!

Great video, all the shots were good but some of them really seemed to jump off the screen. Nice one!

The pictures are spectacular, what interval speed did you use on the Monument Valley cloud shots?. Sorry I did ask somewhere else but cannot locate it.

Hi Bruce,
Thank you for the compliment.
I set the camera to shoot 1 frame per second. It was a 40+ mph wind and the clouds were racing by. I could barely keep the camera steady and didn't have much time to wait around and shoot a really long timelapse. The dust was blowing like crazy. In fact, I wanted to shoot a massive dust storm coming across the valley behind the camera, but it would have sandblasted me and the lens. I barely got packed up before it over took my postion. I'm still finding red sand in my stuff.

Thanks for the info Doug. I am planning to hopefully shoot in Monument Valley next year. Your pictures confirm that my EX1 will do the job well.
