I'm very new to the drone world, so any advice will be apreciated!

Everything has pretty stock settings in this video, filmed in 2.7k.
In some points i'm using the sport mode (at the end for example), otherwise i'm just in standard or cinematics mode.

Enjoy!

nice video - panning without jerking makes it easier to watch - looks like a fun flight anyway with nice views -

Thanks guys! Your words are really appreciated.
It's my first experience with a drone and even in video editing, I know I still have a lot to understand and learn

Where is this beautiful place and how do you like your Mavic Air so far?

Lovely place for making your video.  I too am working to develop my skills in videography, and have been doing lots of reading and watching tutorials.   Here's some things I'll share:
1.  The pros say to use transitions rarely or not at all.  One recommended them ONLY for major changes in place or time.  Notice that real movies and professional videos don't use them much.
2.  Reduce your length a bit.  Again, my readings say 1 to 3 minutes is right.
3.  Most shots should be no more than 5 seconds between cuts.  Again, watch for this in movies and pro videos.  I was surprised at this "rule", but watching the works of the  pros pretty much backs this up.

Wow, thnks again!
The place is near the town where I live, I'm from Bergamo, in the north of Italy (between Milan an the Alps to give you an idea). It was a very cold day, and everything was grey

Thanks for all the tips shared!

Nice work. Some moves were really nice
I personally like your pace, but that is a matter of taste.
Some pans were a bit abrupt, you might want to try and test the expo / gain settings and change them a little.

This video explains the settings. I believe the Air has similar ones.

And this one explains more on the camera settings, I found that very helpful.

You're welcome.
It takes a different kind of flying though, as the drone won't respond as quick as you may be used to.
You can also try the cinematic mode, if you want to try it the easy way
(not having to adjust everything to your likes.
