Tall Ships passing Rainham Marshes after the Greenwich Festival

On the afternoon of 9th September, the Thames river wall at Rainham Marshes was full of people gathered to watch the Tall Ships pass as they headed out to sea after the grand finale to the Royal Greenwich Tall Ships Festival.

I equipped my camera with a wide-angle zoom lens and set up on a tripod. Through the afternoon I moved to various spots along the path to shoot some images for this timelapse.
I took a shot every 3 seconds, and ended up with a total of about 1800 images. I adjusted the exposure in Lightroom, then exported to 1920 x 1080 pixel jpegs. I used Quicktime to build a video clip for each different view and then Premiere Elements to edit together the video and add titles.
I've discovered since that Premiere Elements can import still sequences directly, so I can save the Quicktime step for my next timelapse.
