I liked the first one a lot because the longer "drive scenes" gave me more time to enjoy the view. I thought it was a great way of showing the area as opposed to shooting it from one, non-moving point. It's very engaging. Cutting those scenes in this new version doesn't give me the time to look around. So personally, I would have left those scenes as they were in the original. Also, the really short scenes that follow very rapidly gave me a bit of a nervous, chaotic feeling. I did not have time enough to really register what you were trying to show me.
What did work for me were the shorter clips of Old Faithful (0:42 to 0:47). The rapid succession of those scenes gave me a sense of zooming in from the whole geyser to the little puddle of boiling water.
Love your work on this! Thanks for sharing!
