I think the idea is sound and worthy of a try, but its also a very difficult technique to pull off. You're asking rather a lot of the viewer and I have a confession to make. I found it a bit too slow for my taste and I reached for the cursor control keys to skip through to the end when I first viewed it.

You appear to have around 30 slides, but we're really being introduced to just one image. You're asking the viewer to watch this one image for almost 4 minutes. Even with a stunning image and superb Photoshop work, one image presented in 30 slides is expecting an awful lot from your viewers.  You're doing a lot of cloning on the image and unfortunately that is a little too obvious. Its because your cloning over a cloned area and that creates a pattern. Our eyes pick out that pattern easily and it attracts our attention for the wrong reasons.

At the start of the sequence and this can only be a personal view, the title is too much in my face. On a 27 in monitor, that huge text and red cartoon like font doesn't set a good first impression. A smaller, simpler text in a neutral colour would be far more stylish and better in my view.  At the end of the sequence the register is off and as an image fades from one to another, there is a moment of visual disorientation for the viewer. The colour is a nice touch, but am I the only one who thinks this is one of those times where ending on a gloriously coloured image would be a positive thing.

Reduce the length, find music with a slightly better pace and in Photoshop, the route to this technique may be better served through layers and layer masks, not cloning. Cutting things out tight may not be the best way.

Response from the author:

Thank you Barry, always great to get feedback about our efforts, especially from "the master" ( that is a genuine comment about you Barry, not flippant).

I gave it a four star rating for the effort and ingenuity you put into. For technical merit.
