but it is worth a watch anyway..... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhRcpaPrFkc

Took a gander at the entries, and I have to say...it's a good round! I really found myself enjoying some of the videos for their aesthetic qualities as well. I would like to give particular props to Alex B: Albeit a low resolution video, the whole shot...the factory...the sun off camera right...the angle and distance combine to give me the impression that you are flying an impossibly huge kite on impossibly short lines...just loved it. I would be interested in an HD version of that one for sure.

I also thought it was interesting that Tom P. flew in sunshine on grass...while his son on the same field flew in snow. That was cool.

And as was already mentioned, the variety of kites was great this round. Fantastic turn out!!

Overall, I'd say that after watching the videos, I am more disappointed I missed out on joining this round. It's an epic round full of new talent and one for the archive for sure. Well done, Yan and VF17'ers.

obi


Nice that you like my entry..In future I will use also HD version. :shock: I agree with Gerardo and start thinking about quality(but only for youtube).Probably For entry video I must use another codec..
Lines are standard lenght 25m. and in previous round I used 30m lines. :idea:
I think in this camera position the whole video looks more comfortable to watch and judge :wink:

Happy Holidays!
and see you in VF18

Thanks Obi - those entrys were shot within 2 days of each other. He had some serious wind to deal with, mine was just a breeze, so it was yin/yang on different levels! :) Now, if I could only learn to comete like that kid!


BTW, I don't recognize all the various kites this time - can someone list who was flying what if it's not too much trouble.


-Tom

All the scores are in and the results have been emailed out to the entrants so they can digest them before the rest of the kiteing world.

I will draw for prizes as soon as possible, it may not be until tomorrow evening tho' (today is my birthday and frankly, I have better things to do!).

Well done David. Good round. Any chance of a breakdown tech vs art?

Nice one, Yan. :thumbsup:

Plenty of room for improvement on my part. :oops:

And great to see a humble Eolo Over achieve third place. Not so humble flying though, Alex. :)
