    Time lapse is one concept which hypnotizes you. A technique which is addictive and leaves you feeling WOW! Thank you Lewis for making me experience that emotion again. And I look forward to your next time lapse video - the little teaser left me mesmerized!

      Jason, looked up the site on Tuesday itself. Fabulous. A question - how do I convert images taken into video on windows :(

      Jason, researched yesterday and found an article which helps. So guys using Windows, do not despair. Download Windows Movie Maker 2.6. Works well.
