So made me want to get in the water. This was very simple and yet very lovely. Super shots with perfect music. Just the right length too; camerawork was excellent.

You’ve certainly got the chillin vibe. Like it. Just momentary glimpses of underwater life. It’s all we need sometimes.

Thanks for the written intro. Really set up the video well. What stunning animals they are. Nicely filmed with good clear sharp images, all well exposed and framed. Music fitted well.

Excellent written intro thanks and good to see what equipment you were using. Nice surface intro which gave a good sense of place. Once underwater the macro images were spot on, very sharp and steady. The following wildlife and diver shots were a treat to see and all very well lit. Music fitted well too.

Cabilao Delights by Marc Eeckhaut

Very nice video, all well shot and edited. Wonderful animals with some nice behaviour. Loved the baby turtle in the coral. All good but I just want to say that as you are such a good videographer and editor, perhaps you could think more about making a story or a thread through the film, instead of a catalogue of images, especially as it was quite long.

And the Winner is….

I would just like to mention Just Chillin by Chelle Gillham as it was a very good video. Very short and simple but left me feeling good. But, the winner this month is Scuba Diving in Roatán, Honduras by Doug McConnachie. Well done!

Looking forward to next month’s entries!
