    Fantastic to see so many patriotic bikers respecting their fallen brothers. Very well presented and a pleasure to watch ! Lin
  2. Version 1.0.0


    Attending the Colorado Springs, Colorado Lift-Off balloon festival, I noticed that many of the balloon pilots liked to descend and "dip" their gondola in the adjacent lake before resuming their flight. To really do justice to this as a photographer, it would be necessary to be either precisely positioned on shore or in a boat in direct proximity, so I decided to attempt to create a realistic animation using PTE. The last image in this short series shows my animation results. The balloon descends while flying toward the observer, makes a small "splash" as it contacts the rather still lake then with a blast of hot air begins the ascent as the ripples from the splash-down begin to spread. Of course there is the reflection of the descending and ascending balloon in the water as two nearby balloons descend toward the observer. A fun animation to figure out and create.... Improved Splash...

    One of your best shows to date, superb photography and the mix of video work very well with the bird flight being superb. Looking forward to the next one.
    Nice Jeff - love the landscapes and the video mix with is as smooth as glass... Best regards, Lin
    Very nice production Jeff. Liked the mix of stills, video and zooms. The scenes with the birds flying was really nice. I would have been tempted to pan while making the video which would have been a mistake compared to looking at your video of letting the birds come in and out of the view. I'll have to remember that next time.

    Found Found a piece of music that got my old juices flowing. Put pics and video from several adventures from the past to the music with an eye towards video and how much I could could shrink it and yet keep good HD quality and still stay within the megabits limit. I hope you enjoy the show. Jeff

    Version 1.0.0


    Orkney is an archipelago off the North-east coast of Scotland. We had a fairly brief stay on Mainland, the largest island including Skara Brae, a Neolithic settlement on the west coast of Mainland, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Amongst places visited Scapa Flow and Ancient Standing Stones.
  7. Version 1.0.0


    Prior to our customary autumn visit to the Scottish Highlands, we decided to take a look at some of the fishing ports and villages on Scotland's East Coast between St Andrews and Inverness. Res: 1920x1200.
    Nice scenery and I liked the muted color scheme you used in this show. Bert
  8. Version 1.0.0


    In the 1960s the landscapes of the desert of Tabernas developed into a sought after movie location, well known productions such as King of Kings (1960), Cleopatra (1963), and the winner of seven Oscars, Lawrence of Arabia (1962), all used the desert as a backdrop during filming, attracting big budget Hollywood directors such as Steven Spielberg who chose Almeria for scenes in his blockbuster movie Indian Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) starring Harrison Ford. Sergio Leone, the director of the famous Spaghetti Westerns, starring Clint Eastwood, also capitalised on these unique landscapes, scenes from A Fist Full of Dollars (1964), For a Few Dollars More (1965), The Good The Bad and The Ugly (1966), and A Fistful of Dynamite (1972), were filmed in the western village movie sets as well as the surrounding desert and other well suited spots throughout the remarkable terrains of the province.
    First version rec'd 5*, so does this one. Like them both. I think I saw a few differences going by memory,but nothing bothered me about the first version. Excellent presentation Maureen, as always.
  9. Version 1.0.0


    Wrong version uploaded yesterday. Sorry - senior moment. Maureen
    Well done Cor, with the right amount of slow dissolves you got the ambiance of the villages just right. We were there in 2013, thought there were fewer children than but maybe they were in school. Great place to travel, special for us Dutch. Bert
    Interesting presentation. Had not been aware of these types of villages before. Thanks
  10. Version 1.0.0


    Traditional villages Gurusina and Bena on the island of Flores in Indonesia
    And another excellent presentation from Maureen. Wonderful images blended well with the music. Keep them coming Maureen!
  11. Version 1.0.0


    More holiday snaps from the southern counties of Britain, this time Devon and Dorset with, perhaps, a few 'strays' from the neighbouring county of Somerset. Res: 1920x1200.
    I found this quite by chance as I haven't been on the site for sometime. What a lovely sequence Maureen. You never mentioned you were making AVs again. Will this get me back motivated? Who knows? Anyway the quality of the images as always were superb and the balance of music and timing very enjoyable. Well done. Anthony
    Fantastic Moureen as Usual.... We loved the Poldark series, and often wondered where those great scenes were filmed... Now we know thanks to you! Dick
    Maureen, you’ve probably already received my email, but just to reiterate… beautiful photography, as always. Another great presentation yet again. I can’t believe we actually saw our exchange cottage in Port Isaac in your show. What are the chances? Please keep your wonderful work coming!
    Another excellent Maureen show! Nicely sequenced and sycned to the music. I haven't been to that part of England for way too many years (35-40 years) I almost thoguht I recognized some of the harbours and pubs, but then many look alike. Thanks for the memories Maureen. I should visit again.
  12. Version 1.0.0


    Simple slideshow of holidays pics taken on a couple of visits to Cornwall, altho' I suspect there may be one or two 'strays' from the neighbouring county of Devon. Cornwall was the setting for the novels of Daphne du Maurier also the popular TV series of Poldark and Doc Martin.
    Heel mooi Cor. Was dat gedaan in een wadden loop tocht? Worked also very well because you kept the horizon on the same hight. Bert
