Mars Curiosity Descent – Ultra HD 30fps Smooth-Motion (by suitzoot)

Amazing video of the descent of Mars Curiosity converted from the JPGs into HD video:

Ultra-resolution, smooth-motion, detail-enhanced, color-corrected, interpolated from the original 4 frames per second to 30 frames per second. This video plays real-time at the speed that Curiosity descended to the surface of Mars on August 6, 2012.

Purely Pacific Northwest

John Eklund’s work is amazing. ┬áHe includes some great details on his time-lapse video:

I am a photographer from Portland, Oregon. I want to share the beautiful NW region through my eyes with time-lapse photography.

I choose to shoot locations that appeal to the way I would like to interpret the story of time. Here in the Pacific Northwest, there are endless opportunities to document the magnificence of the world around us. I have discovered that when time is the storyteller, a special kind of truth emerges.

Various locations include:

Mt. Shuksan, Crater Lake, Mt. Bachelor, Mount St. Helens, Oregon’s Badlands, Painted Hills, Cape Kiwanda, Mt. Hood, Lost lake, and Cannon Beach

I started this project in July 2011 and shot the final scene in August 2012. I took approximately 260,000 images. I used 6.3 TB of hard drive space.
