About This File

Being a wildlife photographer, I spend many hours in hides and some of these not very productively. During recent wildlife photography trips, I have been taking images of the landscape around where I photograph the wildlife and have tried to make a slideshow of what I see on my visits. Never having made a slideshow before, I have relied on a lot of help from members on the forum, a really big thank you to all who helped. So if you can spare a little over three minutes of your time, please take a look.

Most of the images are in my local area of the Derbyshire Peak District.

YouTube always seems to compress videos so I apologise if some of the images are not as sharp as I would have liked.

Hi Mike,

I thought your images where very nice and very sharp.  As an AV show, I agree with most of the comments that other people have made already.

One thing I found looking at your images on my monitor, was a lot of shimmering where there where a lot of small strait lines.  Go on the forum to see how to avoid that in PTE.

Hi Mike,

I fully appreciate that you are new to the AV/Slideshow world and are just beginning to get your head around PTE.  You will have read the comments on the PTE forum, in reply to your post about how to make better slideshows.  For your first attempt, this is most impressive.

If I may offer some detailed feedback.  I didn't like the -
thick white borders on your images,
portrait format,
whizz bang transitions,
repetition of the same, or very similar photos.

IMHO landscapes need some time, folk like to look around and enjoy a really good image.  You had plenty, the one of the bridge was outstanding. So think about starting again from scratch.  Remove the watermark, resize them all to you're preferred ratio, either 16:9 or 16:10.  ( I use 16:10 as  I know I will just have to take a small slice off the top and bottom and then compose the scene, at the time, with this in mind.) Then create the show to 'show off' your best photos!  Give them plenty of time, IMHO slow fades work well,  and find some suitable music that you can sync the transitions to.  This, of course is easier said than done!  

Have a look at my 'Wild Scotland' show, that lets the images speak for themselves, slow fades, synced to the music that builds up tension and atmosphere..  It will illustrate many of the points I have made above.  Think of it as mere inspiration and then have another go and produce something better!  You have the photos all you need is an appropriate soundtrack.  

Again for inspiration, listen to Classic FM at 5pm on Saturdays.  It is called 'Saturday Nights At The Movies'.  I often listen and occasionally I will come across a track that I immediately said to myself - I know what photos I could put to this!  And then the journey begins...
