Dale, you have some good, strong points there. I didn't think of it this way when I first said I supported Mike's idea about not signing up.
I especially like the nr 5.

But still I can see some good things about Mike's idea. People who are "sitting on the fence", not signing up because they maybe have other things scheduled, might be able to deliver a finished video anyway.

on the fence?

for those who may be of the fence about signing up.

please sign on and go for it.

I personally have found the first two have made me much more attentive to the small stuff.

the constructive criticism has been gentle and extremely helpful.

I figure in another half a dozen i might actually give the guys a run for their money.

In the mean time it is fun and a great experience.

How can you do anything but improve and have greater respect for those that do jush great work!!

Yes, I agree with you Dale. I learned a lot from UWOL2, and I plan to attend as many future challenges as I can. Hopefully all of them.
The feedback from the others is a great way to learn.

I wouldn't dare miss out on number three so count me in one more time. Now the exciting part...due to the filming taking place in May I plan to surprise everyone by using snow and some bare rocks as my feature backdrop rather than just snow....mind you I have my fingers crossed that rocks will be sticking through in places.

Last weekend I spent three days locked in my cabin due to a blizzard. Damn you just have to love the Arctic.

Will love to view some of your rocks in Uwol3, Brian ;-) A rumor says the next theme will be: "at the sunny beach!"
Yiiiiik ;-)

If this is true, maybe I'll finally get my chance showing off. I've been joking with Meryem about bying me a wetsuit, but it is now longer a joke. My wetsuit is "hiding" in a closet in our basement. It was very expensive and my wife.... Well, I think she know me by now :) But I have to use my Panasonic DVX100 camera though, in case we're going "under water". And I also got me an adapter for my XLH1 Per, but cant compete with your lenses, yet.
