What a pretty little pond you found there! I really liked it accompanied by such a blue sky.

Isn’t it just like animals to be nowhere around when you really need them? ;)

You did a good job of mixing pans with static shots to give the eyes a chance to simply rest on a nice image. One thing you might try if you haven’t already, Chris, is the diagonal pan. I use it a lot, maybe because my eyes work that way when I’m scanning an area, but mostly because I think it adds interest and gracefulness—like a gentle sweep of an area or group.

Hi Chris,

Nice entry with lovely rich saturated color. Camera work was excellent and it had a very nice soothing feel with the slow pans and tilts combining with very relaxing music.

Well done.

Hi Chris,

That was very beautiful. I loved the rich colors and the music fit well with the change of scenery. Did the red winged black birds attack you like they attacked me?

John: I use Vegas, and encode to a quicktime there. I find that in the process, I lose saturation, so I push the saturation up for the render.

Oliver: Noisy, but no attacks !

Hi Chris,

Yes, it is what it is...and it was lovely to watch. The music was a great choice for such a serene type of film. The colors were very vibrant and your camera work was well mixed and executed. Nice footage and yes, it would have been nice to have mixed it up a it with some wildlife however, I do agree, finding wildlife on a Sunday avo can be difficult (same here in Aus).

Not bad at all for a quiet Sunday afternoons work. Well done Chris.

Hi Chris.

Something funny happens when I open up your video file, it starts playing at 3.03 ?
I have to push the rewind button and then it's OK :)

This was a beautiful video to watch and the music is just right. Great colours. No VO needed in this one as the music and clips do tell it all. Building up expectation and then the sound from the bird comes in and finally we get to see it. I just wonder if we sometimes forget that trees and plants are living hings too, eh? And that birds and animals need a habitat to live in? I just wish I had some of your skills when it comes to putting together clips this way. A wildlife film dont have to be a "stuffed turkey", if you know what I mean :)

All the best.

That's what a Sunday stroll should be like - good and peaceful. Who needs a church on a Sunday when you have God's creation all around you!

Pity the animals weren't a bit more forthcoming, but it makes them something to be enjoyed even more when they are there.

A nice, contemplative film. Beautiful images, especially the blackbirds. You have a great way of focusing on the essence of a scene, really bringing it out. Great film.
