Wow, very nice video indeed! I didn't realize the judging would be done by today and I'm sorry I hadn't the time to comment earlier.

Great shots...(I really like the reflection of the fisherman in the water and the kingfisher flying twoards the camera), very good editing making everything flow together and a nice musical piece to boot!

Very professional and a great example of how to do things well. No wonder you won :)

Congratulations!!
Your video was one of my favorites, and you deserve the victory!
I really liked how you mixed the fisher man and the bird.
Looking forward to see you in the next uwol challenges.

Matt, magnificent. The best in show. I am so glad you won, it really was the best. Your shots of the Kingfisher are some of the best I have seen, I have been trying for years to get those shots. Again, congradulations. Bob

Mat,

What gear and software did you use in creating this? :-)

Hi guys....well thanks again for all the kind words and congrats...its a great buzz :)

Marco...Well camera is the XL2 with a mixture of stock lens and EF 100-300 F4-5.6, all of the kingfisher shots were with the EF lens, this is a fairly cheap lens really but can produce good results in the right light. (Hopefully getting a tasty Sigma 100-300 F4 this week) This is mounted to a Bogen 3063 head and legs.

Software wise it was PremPro2.

I had to a bit of colour grading here and there to get things consistant and the slo mo was straight from 25p footage slowed to as much as 55% which still worked pretty well. At least at this resolution anyway. I should write it to a DVD really and see how it looks on a tv...

Congratulations Mat,

I loved the shots of the kingfisher. When I see them they're usually flying away at top speed.

I just wish I had known that the bird was called a Kingfisher when I first watched the video. It would have been a completely different experience.
