    First post! Would love some criticism on my shots.

    Shot with -1 sharpness, -3 contrast, -1 saturation, and basic graded in premiere.

    Looking forward to being a part of this community!

    Smooth flying, nice place, love the sky. Yes I tried those settings, but inept at grading etc (getting better), so now I shoot on auto and do a bit of PE in Premiere Elements.
    I believe someone else said the sharpness of the sharpness (if that makes sense) is toned down in the new FW, so as before -1 is more like -2 now.

    Thanks for sharing and I'm sure many more knowledgeable people will along.

    Nice job, even colour balance/grading is quite a challenge, you have done a good job, moody/dramatic in parts.
    I fully agree with Jim Hare's comments in regard to length of show. Less is more for me, but if you are telling a story it is a challenge to cut out good shots for the sake of the story. I have been doing this for a few years now and it is still difficult (I agree with Jim at around 80-90 seconds, my attention span drifts quickly after that, keep em wanting more!).
    Read a lot, watch a lot, look what others do and unpick how it is achieved. Like photography, getting it right takes time. Above all, enjoy it!
