    Nice one!

    If you want to improve it I would suggest:

    • Time ramp the photos to music
    • Get the camera a little higher
    • Maybe if it's something like a trip to work get a couple of angles on it for some change
    • Any outside of car shots would be great!
    • The shots where the big buildings are looming towards you are great, more of them!
    • Pick a sunny day!

    Apart from those suggestions I thought it was good!

    Thanks!

    That was pretty much the list I had as well. A bit tricky because the lens touches already the windshield. I have to see what I can rig. It's all on the cheap.

    Also need some iso switching in the tunnels.

    updated version with music.

    although I have no clue ow to maintain video quality through youtube.

    it's a mess to go from quicktime pro via itunes to my ipad to begin with. then youtube does a shoddy job and i end up with 480p instead of clean 720p. looks much better on my mac than on my ipad and youtube is quite bad.

    anyway this is the sophisticated setup:

    Here is mine. Read the comments section. You'll see my setup was a bit more complicated. ;)

    I liked your tunnel scenes.

    Here's one I did for photojournalism class, the quality is downgraded for faster exporting. Let me know what you think :)

    I liked the escalator scene.

    Was it a time lapse, or did you take video and then remove frames? If a time lapse, what was the time between frames capture?
