    Thank you for sharing. Very good video, and fantastic colours.
    Apart from the actual colours of the waters and landscape in Cyprus, Were you filming with a polarizer? Was the video made in Normal setting? D-log? or Vivid? I am not able to get those rich hues at all!

    Thanks. It was filmed in the 'none' profile and i used an ND 32 filter. I also added a slight bit of saturation in post an they were the results

    Lovely video! Do you have a link for the filter? Was also wondering what software you are using - ive started tinkering with iMovie but it seems a bit limited (or maybe its just my ability!)

    Well done! Bang up job on the editing too.

    I would have some suggestions. I wouldn't call it advice. You get advice in law school. In the art world, we give other offerings. ;)

    Great stuff. If this is your first video, you are bound for greatness.

    Here is the link to the ND filter set I used, there is loads of different brands out there but these had good reviews and are well priced

    TACO-RC Thread on ND filters set (ND4/8/16/32) for DJI Phantom 4

    Yes I started on iMovie and moved onto final cut pro a few weeks ago.

    I watched it again, ready to jot down some notes but to be honest, I didn't find a whole lot wrong with it at all. In fact, the only thing I could give a criticism on is there is a couple jerky moves here and there but nothing out of the ordinary.

    I would also say the only thing that left me a little dry was the ending. I am a big fan of endings, especially on pieces that are music driven, of which this is.

    Which bring me to my next point, you are VERY good a matching the breaks, the beats and the rhythm to your video and the variable speeds are not too much, while just pushing the boundary. I found that to be fun and added excitement to the video.

    Having been around aerial photography for so long, the vistas with no narrative tend to get boring unless they are of the most interesting things and aside from the nude beach, this was just that and you really did a fantastic job editing to the music. I might suggest next time that you really go nuts with it and maybe something a little faster with jump cuts that move you toward your final destination. To great effect, you did similar in this video where you jumped forward and/or using time-lapse to to do so and it worked great!

    I know people that have been editing for 10 years that are just as good as you are. I was thoroughly impressed.

    Great stuff!!!!

    Great stuff! Some really smooth shots! Are you flying manual or with litchi/autopilot/etc?
