    Well, looking for peer reviews but I am already aware…
    1. My voice adds nothing and I will keep my gob shut next time throughout
    2. I am maybe being a bit to brutal on the editing, I will learn
    3. Yes, not very technical trails, but I will add those later

    I shoot my own terrible Go Pro movies but am too cowardly to share them, so well done!

    Positive points:

    Lovely location
    Not bumpy (some visual distortion noticed – did you use smoothing software?)
    Cyclists in view
    Documents the trail nicely

    Negative points:

    Need to angle the camera up more – I got eyeball ache
    You didn’t huck the steps! 🙂
    Probably a bit long for general entertainment

    [list][*]great trail[/*]
    [*]good to see the riders ahead[/*]
    [*]nice to see the views![/*]
    [*]generally gives a good sense of the trail (where is it – china?)[/*]
    [*]you’re very polite which is always nice to see![/*][/list]

    [list][*]dont you just hate hearing yourself on bike videos! lol[/*]
    [*]its a bit too long[/*]
    [*]angle up the camera a little bit[/*]
    [*]be more selective with your clips and try and ‘flow’ them together[/*]
    [*]how about some music?[/*][/list]

    Thanks for the pointers, both camera angle and length of video will be reviewed for the next ride this weekend.
    I will look to bring the next video down to sub 10 minutes if possible and add some music, the final edit will dictate what type of music though.
    Trail is on Lantau Island, Hong Kong and is a nice easy XC ride, next video will be more of an AM/XC mix.
