  1. The Bannack Album

    A show of the preserved (not restored) historic mining town of Bannack in the Western USA.
    I wanted to make a slideshow that somehow connected with the people who had lived there 150 years ago.
    The template of the album was some years ago supplied by 'trailertrash"

  4. Images of Australia

    I made this Slideshow some time ago and so far it has only been shown to family.

    I hesitated up until now to show it elsewhere because I thought that as it's in the form of a simple Photo Album of our trip to Australia it might have limited appeal to others.

    However now I've decided that I might as well show it here for any others to view should they wish to.

    If others get some enjoyment from it as did the family then that would be a bonus!

  7. London Calling

    I have had the idea for this slide show for some time, but a recent visit to the UK allowed me to shoot the images. They required Monochrome conversion with strategic colour. They also needed to be aligned just as they would be if shot from a Tripod, but these were not. All hand held, so align techniques were required to make them line up for the audio visual

  8. "China Light Zoo" Antwerp

    During the Christmas and New Year's period Antwerp Zoo arranged what they called "China Light Zoo".
    It reminded me of the few times I was in Taiwan during the "Lantern Festival", a light festival taking place every year on the 15th day of the new Chinese Lunar Year.

    It is my very first show here on this "Slideshowclub" site, so I hope you enjoy it.

  10. Inclement Weather

    The images used for this sequence were shot in Scotland during 2008, so you could ask what took you so long. There is quite a gap between what we see with our eyes and what our cameras can capture and despite knowing this we can still be fooled sometimes.

    Fooled into thinking that those flat, colourless raw thumbnails have little to offer. However, come back some time later, in our case 6 years later and you may see those same images in a completely different way to how you did at the time they were taken. In addition those 6 years make a lot of difference to your skills with working through raw images and in those years Photoshop has vastly improved the tools that allow us to bridge that gap between what we can see and what we can capture. This sequence is as a result of looking back.

    I have also used sound effects to try and establish a mood, but whether that as been successful, only time will tell

  12. ILULISSAT AND THE ICE FJORD

    Icebergs are called Ilulissat in Greenlandic. Ilulissat is the third largest town in Greenland and is set in marvellous surroundings at Ilulissat Icefjord which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here enormous icebergs run aground at the mouth of the fjord, just outside the town, which originate from the Jakobshavn Glacier, one of the most productive glaciers in the northern hemisphere.

    These photographs were taken on a recent visit in early June this year.

  13. In a cold Christmas's night

    It's not the real title, but I prefer to let you discover this tale. Perhaps you may guess its story before the end ?

    Note. Each day during the Advent's time, an AV is offered on the French forum Diapositif.net as a present of an Advent Calendar.
    It was my turn the 12th December of 2012. The "12.12.12" has no other meaning for the AV.

  15. Rocky Mountain Kids

    Colorado is a very high altitude state. It has the highest average altitude of any state in the USA with 637 mountain peaks over 13,000 feet and 53 over 14,000 feet elevation. On these high mountain peaks are some amazingly hardy animals including Rocky Mountain Goats, Pika (a tiny cousin of the rabbit) Marmots, a variety of birds, etc. There are also fragile wild flowers, moss and other vegetations. In the winter the snows are deep, over 20 feet, with sub zero freezing temperatures and extreme winds so the burrowing wildlife hibernates while the goats seek lower elevations to spend the winter months. Mount Evans is 14,268 feet in elevation and every year after the goat nannies (also regionally sometimes called ewes or does) have their young called kids at about 10,000 feet elevation. When they are strong enough, the nannies bring them to the high summits to enjoy munching on the fragile vegetation above the altitude range of most predation.

    I've climbed every year to the tops of a number of these peaks to photograph the wildlife. As I've gotten older and less able to climb, I spend more time on Mount Evans which actually is accessible by paved road to over 14,100 feet. Long focal length telephoto lets me get up close to these wonderful creatures. This show was made with beta 18 of PTE 6.0 several years back, but I thought it might be of interest

  16. Der Meistertrunk

    Rothenburg Ab Der Tauber is situated in Baveria. It is one of Germany's best preserved medieval towns. Why is it so well preserved? Why was it spared in the Thirty Years War? Because of Der Meistertrunk. What is that? You will have to watch the show to find out.

  20. Contrast

    After our visit back to England from Australia in 2014, I found I didn't have enough images taken in Cumbria (The Lake District) to be able to make the slide show I had hoped for. Lighting and weather conditions in the short time we were there, just didn't play ball. So, when that happens you have to capture what you can.
    I was looking for some music for a Lakeland AV, but was beginning to come to the conclusion that I didn't have enough good images for a Lakeland Audio Visual anyway. Then an idea came to me. I wondered if I could create a mixture of images and music from England and Australia to show some of the contrasts between them

    The sequence contains 4 pieces of music and a sound effect. There are about 60 images, the vast majority of them shot in the past few months. These Audio Visual sequences are a labour of love, with many hours committed to the creation of the images and the final slide show.

  24. Scotland

    Easter 2013, I went on my first photography holiday to the Glencoe region and the Isle of Skye with a friend from my camera club. The weather was almost perfect, sometimes we complained that the sky didn't have any clouds! I am used to having only minutes to take my photos, as result of 15 minute rest and toilet stops on a coach trips. On this holiday I had all the time in the world. We left our B&B at 9am and didn't return until 10pm. We had planned and researched the trip meticulously and well in advance. We had everywhere we wanted to visit with GPS coordinates, routes, etc. We didn't worry about waiting for 30 mins for the light to change. Almost everything was taken on a tripod. I had my 2007 Nikon D300 with a Sigma 10-20, and Nikon 18-200VR. I also had my 2009 Nikon D700 with a 24-70 f/2.8 and 70-200 f/2.8 VRII. I also had my iPhone 4, which I used with a tiltpod and 645Pro app or ProHDR app.

    The images in this slideshow contains were half taken with the D300 and half with the D700. There is also one iPhone image, I bet you can't tell which!

    V6 achieved 2nd place and a PAGB Sliver Medal in the NIPA AV Festival 2014. It was the first time a 'Photo Harmony' sequence achieved a medal. The judges were Malcolm and Maggie Imhoff, and it was clear that they were proud supporters of the photo harmony genre. Previous judges often outlined their belief that a sequence with narration was merely a slideshow and not an Audio Visual, and that with good narration and added sound effects any image/music sequence would never win at competition level. The Imhoff's were a breath of fresh air, they considered such 'dictates' as outdated and simply wrong. In his feedback Malcolm suggested that I could improve the sequence by removing the six images in square format. I initially replaced these with only images, but it didn't flow well, so I went back to my raw files and created landscape versions at 16:10 instead of 1:1. This is the final result, I hope you like it.
