You have some very nice photography there. You also have soem clear ideas about how to apply effects., and very nicely too on occasion.
However, when watching this I couldn't help feeling that the montage had that 'Look what I can do' feel about it rather than composed with a specific purpose. I guess this is more evident because there the music track seems to have been just added. Try and edit to the beat and tempo of the music, you will be surprised at the difference this makes.
Also for me, at this resolution, the closing credits (whilst nicely composed) didn't quite work becuase the video was too small.
Overall though a good effort. Just need to be a bit snappier with the editing and a bit more planning to the composition.
COMPAQ something or other with 500Gb Boot Disk, 1Tb external Firewire Disk, 4Gb Memory and a super duper sound card, 19" TFT Monitor etc etc etc
