I just assumed that those shots were taken inside an underwater enclosure. This is, after all, the Under Water Over Land forum, so when I saw a water related shot, I figured the camera was well protected.

I don't know if I am shocked, appalled, or seriously impressed with your bravery.

But, you got the shot, right? That's the important thing!

No underwater paq yet, cannot wait to get one of those! It was bravery mixed with determination to get a good shot, even at the cost of soaking my camera.

Marco,

Nice film. Favorite shot was at 1:16. Showing how big the rock formation was by the tiny little person walking on it was awesome. Really shows the scale of it.

You're braver than I am to take a camera out on a lake with no enclosure! :) Shots turned out nice though.

Have to agree about the zooms but other than that a good film!

Marco,

I watched them all friday night and now finally have some time to respond. I definitely have you in my top four short list!! I grew up in the southwest and very much enjoyed the scenery parts. I had to watch it a couple times!!
Great job.

Thanks Dale!


I really tried to capture the spirit of some things you could do in town or just outside of town. Imagine if I would have been able to get out to some of my wonderfully beautiful spots up north!

Marco, I enjoyed your video very much.
It was very nice to see the shots taken from the jetski.

The opening sequence was great. I liked it!
Nice scenery too, would be nice to go there someday.

Maybe you could have shortened the long zooms a little bit, but other than that, I think you did great.

Hi Marco:

Great film. Cool beginning. I have a taste for special effects and yours were great. I also thought some transitions were well done, like the one between the waverunner and the airplane... it made it look like the plane was coming out of the water. Nice! I also liked the sillouette of the little boy and father in the rocks.

Thanks for a great watch.

Thanks so much Cat!

I love to experiment with effects and transitions, but try not to go overboard (no pun intended). The jetski spray and plane transition is something I was hoping someone would appreciate, :-)

Thank you Trond,

You'd love it here in Arizona, just be sure to come in the winter, fall, or spring, LOL!

Haha, yeah your winter is probably like a nice summer day up north here in Norway.

Yeah pretty unstable winters, sometimes as low as in the 20s F and as high as 90s F. That is what we saw in the last couple months.

That was a great look into your area. Not really anything that I can say that the others have not already said.

Thanks

Randy
