    Hello all,

    After a successful initial trip to Fiji, I traveled all the way around the world to the lovely city of Quebec. A fantastic destination for any couple looking for a romantic escape. Quebec City is by far the most European city in North America.

    Aside from some major magnetic declination issues that cost me a phantom unit (it dived in the water), I was able to get some pretty good footage of this lovely holiday destination.

    Let me know what you think.

    Beautiful shots and great editing, but I'm not a fan of the "focus viginette" or whatever the effect is called. It would be effective on one of the clips, but got old quickly.

    Have you been to Old Montreal? I personally like it better than quebec even (I'm a prairie boy from Alberta).. old Montreal feels like your taking a step into Europe.. very nice feeling.

    Good to know and thanks for your feedback. I'm pretty new at this so trying different things as I go along. The weather was pretty shitty when I shot most of the film so the colours didn't come out nicely. I figured I would compensate with some tilt shift effect to draw the attention away from the lack of brilliance in the shots.

    Would you then suggest I remove the tilt-shift effect all together and simply go with the original footage?

    I happily welcome any other constructive comments.

    Cheers.

    What are you editing with? I would just do color correction to put some color back if possible.

    why are you using the blur effect on the corners?

    to hide the props or to create a tilt-shift effect?

    The intent was to create a tilt shift effect, but apparently people are finding this to be an unnecessary addition. I'm experimenting as I am new to this so the feedback is very constructive.

    You could certainly keep the effect in a single clip, but more than that is overkill IMHO.
