    I'm posting this because I find them strangely fascinating and because I could see something like this as a reason I might want to occasionally use video. I don't have the patience to make or watch many artistic videos, but this is like an enhanced still and appeals to even my short attention span. And yes, I could see myself being interested even if the pictures were not of beautiful women.

    It's certainly easy to make them gimmicky. Still, I think subtle effects like a breeze through a tree would be appealing.
