There are few in the history of the world - I am thinking da Vinci - that can, possess the mindset and the talent (with the years of experience), desire to (and thouroughly enjoy themselves doing so), such work. George mentions Bo Nordh - I believe that George is the equal of Mr. Nordh (RIP) in his work, perhaps with what George accomplishes, is even more blessed by the Power above, in his work.
Many thanks to you George for your work - and for sharing it with us! What a wonderful thing in this world to be thankful for on such an appropriate eve!

Thanks for the kind words, gents. It's always fun to share Shop Stuff with interested people. :puffy:
btw, when I check-watched some of that latest batch after they were uploaded, I was amazed to see pixellation appear here and there. Not happy, either, because I go to some pains to do that whole business in HD on my end, plus have a Google Fiber upload connection. :evil:
It turns out that it was just YouTube's "load level estimator" doin' its thang on my (the viewer's) end. Click the little gear symbol in the lower right of any Youtube playback screen, and you can control the resolution you see at all times, as opposed to letting a program decide for you in realtime (meaning bounce between shitty and sharp) as loads change. Move the playback level OFF the "auto" setting by clicking one of the HD ones. :mrgreen:
The only catch is the playback setting will revert to "auto" when you leave the YouTube page. You have to reset the little gear icon each time you visit.

I fainted when I saw these pictures. Once my pulse returns, I will watch these videos with excitement.
