Re: The Magnificent Bronzes of St Pancras

I have to agree with you, I think it's a fascinating statue, and you capture its 3Dness very well. I love the frieze at the base too - looks wonderfully detailed!

Re: Portland Spectacular

Congratulations on coming runner up in the competition. A lot of time and effort clearly went into making this film. I got the impression you used several cameras on this. The quality of the images differed quite significantly and I also found the difference in the colour balance between some shots...
