pretty cool man.. u had many MANY opportunities to split your image layers and recreate the composition, and if u had particle illusion, u could even animate the water on that boat shot (among other things).
If this is your first effort, its a pretty good one at that

cheers

Hi Leung, is the couple korean? I think the song is a little sad in meaning.. The photos r well taken i must say! As for the montage, kudos for the great timing to the music!! Like Peter said, a little photoshop work to seperate the couple from the backgnd could give u a lot more creativity! You could make the couple 'enlarge' while the background is moving. I'm also experimenting with particle illusion on how to animate the water for example..

That was really good. It sure blew away my first attempts at a photo montage! The couple should really enjoy that. Like others said I think the photos were well taken and that helps so much when you put things together. Good work.

Really nice, I have no audio at work, so I watched it with Ton Loc's 'Funky Cold Madina' on the radio but just the same. I liked the heart forshadowing you did with the pictures. You had some good pics. I like that solem picture at the fence. Looks nice. Congrats.

when you've got some nice photo on your hand, the editing is a joy. You are willing to spend more time to make it better~

The couple are chinese and they ask me to use that song in montage....so I think they don't know what it means~~~

Does not matter what I do, where I go, nothing happens. Just a big QuickTime question mark.

If I can't see, I can't comment. I've never had issues like this before.

I thought it was great. Loved the foreshadowing of the heart at the end. Reminds me that I should put more effort into my own photo montages, which tend to get more and more simple as the editing backlog mounts....

Very nice

Hi SiuChung,

Thank for sharing the photo montage - very good timing (video/audio) and overall tempo. I also liked your assortment of burn-cut, zooms, rotations, disolves, pans, etc; not overdone to distract the viewer yet enough to maintain good interest (not an easy task working with stills).

Hopefully you'll keep it posted at the URL for some time - I'll certainly share this with other emerging videographers to illustrate how still photos can come to life. Thus far, the illustration I've been using was a still photo documentary (VideoMaker #11, Readers Showcase):

http://www.videomaker.com/vidcast/11/

Jack Schell (Gun Barrel City, TX) won an award for his excellent work and it's worth learning his "camera work" and editing techniques. At times it's hard to believe Jack didn't use a video camera (all done with a scanner).

Warm Regards,

Michael
