    Where did you find them for $8? The cheapest I found were like $25ish for 3 but I still don't even have $25 but I didn't really realize that you are getting 3

    Load it into the GoPro Studio and try the ProTune filter and play with the settings ;)

    I agree with the ND filters, they made a world of difference on my videos. But otherwise I enjoy your videos overall.

    A visually stunning video, but don't forget to mix the video and the audio together, not just throwing music behind a video.

    Great vid. Did you use a Orbit feature to keep the bog center or free hand?

    If you are you to constructive criticism, here are a few thoughts? These are meant to be constructive in nature and should not be construed as only criticism.

    Length: 4 minutes+ is very long and it is hard to keep people focused for that long. I doubt many people got to the end of the video. You can probably validate that by looking at your video stats. Our company now only produces videos sub 3 minutes because we noticed a clear drop in views after the 2:30 mark. Something you might want to consider.

    Music: Generally, try to match the music to the type of content you are shooting. Music acts as an emotional trigger and in this specific case, I don't see the link between the footage and the music.

    Shot duration: Somewhat related to the first point, try to show the best parts of specific sequences. I was ok with about 20 seconds of the orbit shot around the lake, but after 90 seconds of the same sequence, I was really looking forward to moving on. Keep it to the best parts.

    Grading: Footage from our aerial cameras is notoriously bad and without manual intervention to upgrade the overall look, colours will look faded. This is the case throughout the video and your footage would benefit from grading in post production. This is a different skill set of course, but taking the time to grade the footage will make a huge difference in the output.

    Overall: This is a very good start for someone who has not had a lot of practice and displays potential. Keep up the good work and feel free to post your future work as well.

    Cheers

    What do you mean by that? I used it so you could get a view of everything around there, but I know I should have just put it clips of it that show some key features.

    he means when you were flying circles around the pond did you use any features to keep it centered.
