Thanks Walter. The music I’ve used in this challenge are available, free to use, in the DJI Mimo video editing app. I’m doing these videos for fun and to try to learn how to film half decent video when I travel. I haven’t monetised my YouTube channel but if I do ever get around to shooting any good video when travelling I might change my mind. Problem is when I travel, the stills camera will always be my first grab.Nicely done, again. May I ask about music? Do you worry about copyright or are you only using it for personal vids, not promotion or business. What is your source for music? Your vids are truly inspiring me!!
I really like this! Nice work!An early morning foray to the beach at Beesands (about 4 miles away) to point the GF1 at a scene with a dynamic range somewhat in excess of it's 10 year old sensor technology to be capable of recording, hence some areas of blown out sky. I had always intended to make a monochrome image but found I had to resort to my Windows machine and use Silver Efex to get close to my original vision, not that I'm sure I succeeded, but another image that hopefully conveys some atmosphere though it is beyond reality. The exposure time was lengthened with three Cokin ND filters stacked in front of the lens in the hope of conveying some sense of movement in the water although it was a bit too calm with very little surge in the sea, unlike recent conditions on the other side of the world in the Bass Strait, so all I ended up with are wispy gossamer like streaks.
Having given it some thought in the hour since posting I now think the image would have been improved by some local burning in of those wispy gossamer streaks to lift them from zone 7 that they were showing in Silver Efex. Hmm, that turned out to be a somewhat ambitious idea , think again.

p.s. Once again Photoshop throws any Exif data away (you can tell when I use RawTherapee, Exif is there!)
You have such amazing vision for filming. I can see you easily making a great web series.
There are royalty free music sites for film makers, like Incompetech: Royalty-Free Music. @Briar If you haven't checked out incompetech already, it would be worth a look for another source of music.Nicely done, again.
