Let me know which you guys prefer, with the Lens Flares or without? Here's my latest video production I did for my clients sponsored Mercedes CLS 550 featuring Accuair Air Suspension & Vossen VFS-1's 20" Wheels. Using for the first time an Aerial Drone to get the high angle shots I filmed on a Canon 5d MarkIII and all video footage was shot in RAW giving us lots of highres detail & flexibility in post production to color correct and get the images looking sharp. C&C much appreicated. Thanks.

I like the overall quality of the video, and the drone was done well.

The only thing I'd nit-pick is the flares you added in the upper left and bottom right hand corner, they distracted me a little too much from the overall video. I feel like with the quality of video you produced, you could have gotten away with some nice vignetting effect like the BBC Top Gear shots or something.

I agree, the "flares" do distract quite a bit.

I'm going to re-render the video without the flares, and just keep a nice vignette. Will put up a new post. Thanks for the critiques.

I like the video. The flare didn't really bother me until I read the other comments and started looking for it.

My nitpick is the SUV and people in the background around 00:30
I was like "this video is cool...wait, why's that guy standing there?"

I presume that's ekraja flying the drone. I saw it too but didn't think much of it.

Lol, yes that was me flying it. That shot was an accident, i just liked how the camera came around the car. Next time I would have planned it out better :)
