Whilst eating a pizza and stressed about the credit crunch i put this montage of shots together from when we visited falmouth this year for the tall ships.

Realised as I uploaded that i did not start or end it right:confused:

Filmed on my trusty 14 year old sony 8mm camera with no steadyshot whatsoever and handheld, can it get worse!:)

Thought I would share anyway.

Cheers.

I liked the powerfull music but it didn`t quite go with the many shots of the Pipers! Maybe you should have used Tune of Glory :-). Liked the Sepia tone & overall well edited. Just a point, nothing to do with your video camera work etc, isn`t illegal to fly a Skull & Crossbones?

Royal Navy subs fly the skull and crossbones when returning to port after a successful patrol.

An ex girlfriend's dad was on the Conquer during the Falkland's war.

Your right! I should have said small boats! It was just a mish mash of a few shots in the freezing cold while we happened to be in Falmouth for the tall ships event. I think we missed the real events and the ships were only just arriving. I was tempted to add some light rays to add atmosphere:D but resisted.

Hi Barry, I know nothing about ships etc.....but am sure you are right.

I also think the harsh beginning and ending was reflective of my mood last night!:)

Cheers.

Good piece. I love your images, as always.

Didn't particularly favor the sepia, but that's just my taste. I thought it was too strong and looked yellow on my computer.

Also thought the music didn't fit UNLESS you were trying to be sarcastic, in which case you succeeded!
