I beg of your forgiveness and patience, Sharp Goaters.
Normally today would be the day when I would post the video critiques of last week's challenge. However, as some of you are aware, I am on vacation this week in Florida spending time with my family (evidence of this above; that's my awesome baby nephew in the background, Reeve).
Originally I had thought that it would be fun to do the videos while here, showing me lounging around the pool looking at the submissions while sipping a cold one. I'm sure you folk back home would just LOVE that.
I had packed up what gear I needed to make the videos: laptop, Yeti mic, my DSLR kit to record me just in case my webcam was no good.
But my laptop is underpowered and not equipped for producing the videos at a high enough quality. I tried recording a few to see if it could be done and not only was the quality lacking but they also took longer than usual to put together. More time to make a lesser quality video? I don't think so.
So I believe what will be happening is I will be waiting until I arrive home to get this week's critiques out. They should be up by Friday and then we'll be back on track with next week's Think Big Macro Challenge (submissions for that still due on the Sunday, same Bat-time, same Bat-channel).
Savvy? Hope that works for everyone. Sorry for the delay, but I assure you it is worth it. These SG Photo shots that you send in have become a big part of my week and I want to make sure that the critiques reflect that.
Now I have something to look forward to doing when I get home! Thanks for understanding, folks.
