I wanted to try capturing a couple of places that have been abandoned for long time, to show how nature eventually always reclames everything. I hope you guys enjoy.

Nice one. Have you thought about shooting in 4K? Not sure if you're using P4.  

You can try finding an insect or something crawling on the relics, and have a shoot of it, so it matches the rusting background of the houses.  If you can't find one, bring something like a beetle and drop it on a broken wood and shoot ;)

Just my 2 cents.

That was great!  I thoroughly enjoyed it....almost elicits a sadness.  excellent job!

I wanted to do a similar composition around here, with old homes and barns etc, but some of those structures in this part of the country have been taken over, not by nature, but by freelance methamphetamine chemists with shotguns....I love my P3 too much to subject it to such danger.

We have done the same thing last year, it is called "Still Standing" and is currently on display in Little Rock and is making the rounds at art galleries and museums. It is a documentary headed up by Chris Engholm Who is a noted photographer and writer. As a result of Chris's work the state of Arkansas has requested that he do a 10 part miniseries on the history of the area.

Nice job cneedforspeed. Not that you're looking for feedback I had some thoughts.

Achievements:

* great choice in music
* clips are well synchronized to changes in beat and movement
* clips match tone and feeling in music progression

Suggestions to take to next level:

* too much irregular movement in clips -- try to keep things smoother -- do not change direction in same clip unless it has a strong purpose
* evoke a story, rather than seemingly random clips -- start with flying over a tall grass field, maybe have a little girl running in it, evoke a sense of innocence, then move into the decay
* show progressive footage of the abandoned buildings... show it at a distance in one clip, then show it closer in another, then fly over it in another, then show its surroundings in another, etc

I'm far from a professional! But like you I see such a potential for art. You've got a great concept. I would love to see you do this one again with more intensity.

Cheers!
