    Have you permission to use the song/music with the video

    Ths shots of the hiker/fisherman are good I like them but the rest, is it a bike ride :( sorry just my opinion

    Gotta agree with JR1 (so no longer just his/her opinion). The firsherman shots were quite striking but the shots from the bike going along added nothing.
    But hey, that's a first video. I wouldn't show you mine!

    A Bike, I wondered, then surely bar mounted gopro, I use many different cameras, especillay the great Kodak Pixpro SP1 and a mix of GoPros, with the GoPros I use the "Re-fuel" battery packs which last 12 and 24 hours. And get a decent selection of alternative mounts from Amazon/Ebay for 15

    Thanks for the input guy's. The first bit is meant to show the walk to the lake through the forest. the GoPro is mounted to my fishing barrow. was trying to give a whole picture of the morning as the walk is quite enjoyable to the lake.

    From your point of view, with the memory of what was around you, it probably works as such. But from the point of view of someone who was not with you, what we see is a muddy path. This is the one of things you will learn to take on board as you progress through your filming and editing journey

    Remember, 100% what TS said, you may know what it is, I see a "thing" st6icking out on a walk through an untidy place.

    I shoot sports photography for myself and a glossy mag.

    What I shoot for me is one thing, what I shoot for the magazine has to leave peple "knowing" what it is about immediately, not guess.

    considering the time ive been "filming" this is something ive only recently started thinking about ... its a very valid point.

    Try a bit harder to have your camera levelled.
    Avoid sequences where you stop and move on without a visible reason like at 0:40.
    Generally cut it more to an action, add some close-up shots and probably a voiceover.
