Quite like this one :clap:

With the overcast weather in the scene,  reckon this one of the times when you could put a figure walking out of the scene and it will work

Enthusiasm, determination and perseverance will get you there. Go slow now for speed later! Remember the story of the tortoise and the hare?

Yes, I am normally a very patient person..honestly..just get so wrapped up and excited when something actually works!   :yippee:  Sometimes moreso when it doesn't and the challenge to make it right takes over. Oh dear, I am a lost soul!!  :heeha: :D
Cheers, Val

Hi Jettrout. Thanks for your comment. I've been away from the forum for a short while, yet hovering in the background. Been busy producing an art DVD that will be put on the market soon - all about composition and how to use it.

I still owe Val some small video tips ::) Soon, I hope :flowers:
