I have never edited video before. This was done just for fun in iMovie. Rip it apart if you want. I have really thick skin.

I really thought you were going to hit that tree in the opening scene as you were approaching the house.  Good job.

Great first video.  I started with iMovie (took the class at the Apple Store), then decided to go "real Pro" and switched to Davinci Resolve.  After lots of hours working with it, I decided that Resolve had waaaay more features than I'd ever care to learn, so I'm back with iMovie.  Keep watching what others do here and you'll start to see both good and bad.  For your video, the music was very appropriate and, more importantly, you kept your video nice and short - giving us all time to look at some of the many other videos that were posted today.  Let's see more from you.  Also, where is the horse that should be running inside that lovely fence?  ;)

Thanks everyone. The weather here has been really terrible lately.  When it isn't raining the wind is gusting like crazy.  I fly as often as I can and now that I'm starting to play around with editing hopefully I'll get better.  It's really cool that people from all over the world have seen and commented on a video of our little farm in Virginia.  I love this hobby.

Sorry, no horses.  Just 2 beagles and a fox hound.

We have plenty of space. I can fly 2 miles in just about any direction and never fly over a building or residential property.

How lucky is that - Looks like to don't have any shortage of drones to fly with.

Were most of these shots in 'sport' mode?

I believe the only section in sport mode was the section in the middle  flying towards the house and barely missing the trees. The first scene was in P mode and the last scene was in cinematic.

Well, with a beautiful "arena" like you have, you should buy one.  ;)

It wasn't nearly as close as the video looks.  I was surprised at how dramatic it was when I watched it.

Very close to the tree, editing is very well done , I think filters may help. But great job.

Thanks.  I think you're right. It started out as an overcast day so I was using a ND4 PL.  I probably could have used an 8.
