    Very impressive and beautifully presented with a great soundtrack. The whole sequence reminded me of the film Koyaanisqatsi directed by Godfrey Reggio.
    A superb sequence with stunning images and beautifully timed dissolves. Just wonder if it would even better with sweeping orchestral string music instead of the piano. Could watch this many times!
    Really enjoyed this sequence, I would have liked the beginning dissolves/changes to be a bit slower in order to appreciate the images. Did you use a long lens setting for some of the images to get the apparent compression of the landscape? The only problem I had (which is small one) is that the dissolves of the crashing waves in the later part of the show were a bit too quick. On the plus side the ruggedness of the island is superbly depicted.
    I was interested in the show as I know the Lake District reasonably well and it was a change to see more of the high country. As a complete presentation I feel that it stands up pretty well, however there were some areas which I personally think could be improved. 1. The heavy black masking at the beginning and end was too heavy, maybe a vertical wipe form bottom to top at the beginning would work better and in reverse at the end. 2. As noted by another review the third image was maybe a little over used. 3. There is a distinct lack of sharpness in a few images. 4. Some Photoshop artefacts have crept in on a couple of images. 5. Generally the music was reasonable nothing really jarred with the images but towards the end the music got a bit more dramatic and would have suited an image of a waterfall or a a rocky dramatic landscape instead of a tranquil lake scene. Please remember this is a personal impression of the show and maybe not everyone else will agree. One final comment about using photoshop that I use when judging " I don't mind the use of Photoshop to enhance an image but I don't want to see obvious joins" Regards John PS. Have put this in as a review as there appeared to be no response to it in the comments section.
    Absolutely lovely I really liked the ethereal nature of nearly all the images and the superb dissolves. Excellent narration and soundtrack. Like another reviewer I am not sure about the red images a bit of a shock compared to the others! As for the shot with the couple my eye was drawn to his well lit apparent bald patch, maybe a little bit of photoshop make-over to take the bright patch down a bit.

    I enjoyed the show, like the other comment I would prefer to see a full screen presentation. Also I found some of the colour a bit unnatural and over the top but each to his or her own preferences.
  2. Sorry to say that I found the pace far too fast and the changes of format annoying. There were many interesting images that needed more screen time to be appreciated. John
  3. Hi Charlie Absolutely beautiful superb images and soundtrack. For me, it would even better with a dark vignette. John
