About This File

My son recently returned from trekking to and from Everest Base Camp  and asked me to create a show from his photographs.  As it is mainly a record of HIS walk, it is rather longer than usual at 7.5 minutes.  Format 16:10.

Hey Maureen...nice show, perfect music and terrific scenery.  You must be very proud of your son.  To be fit enough to hike at that altitude is something special.

I was born with poor lungs so I always marvel at those with a good pair and then they go out and use them on great adventures.  It looked a bit dry there...is it always like that?  Did your son mention anything about weather?  The length was fine but I always like to stop and take a moment along the way.  I know the true context of the show is disturbed with pausing so I see your point.   Luckily I like to show my wife the shows I enjoy so I will get to study it further.  By the way, I have a hard time looking at my own shows from start to finish by the time I've finished working on them.  Also, I was wondering, did you enjoy working on your son's photos and editing and arranging them.  Years ago I did many shows for friends and family and usually liked working on their stuff more than my own.  Would love to hear your take on it.

All the best to you and yours,

Jeff

Hi Maureen, I really enjoyed this show. I was transported to a part of the world I have never visited and unlikely to ever visit!  Mark's photography was great and what a backdrop, the mountains are magnificent and majestic.  

In relation to the makings of the show, I liked the slow fades but I would agree with Mickp, in that I would have liked longer to take in the sights.  There was just so much to see, I had to watch it again (twice) to take in the wonderful vistas (a cunning ploy!)  Again, I agree with Mickp that I am sure you were concerned about it becoming too long.  Kevin's music was spot on and gave the show a suitable  ambience.

Nik picking, but I know you like detailed feedback - there is one slide with walkers silhouetted against a superb mountain scene.  IMHO I think you have the pan going the wrong way, the walkers appear to be going backwards.  They are all walking from right to left, but the pan goes right, think it should go in the direction of the walkers to the left.

Hi Maureen

Your son made a series of marvelous photographs, and you have arranged them in a nice show.  It did remind me of my own trekking in Nepal in 1976, but I never went that high up.

I would have liked that more pictures would have been longer on the screen because there was so much to see and the pictures where so good. 

The time that they stayed on the screen seems the same for all of them and made it a little monotonous in my opinion.

Great music as well.

Hi Maureen,

Stunning photography and great composition especially as he had to keep up with the group. I think he had a good teacher!  You have put the show together very well and I am sure your Son will treasure the show and the memories. I personally would have liked some of the shots to be on screen a bit longer so I could take it all in but I know you would have been concerned about the overall time for the show.  Having said that 7.5 minutes just flew past.
