a little slow paced at some points
i thought the use of the fisheye was effective and didn't bug me at all,
and i agree that you should cut or turn down the original sound and turn up the music, i could barely hear it. and the camera shake wasn't too bad, but a tripod would make the edit look better.
nice angles, and good filming overall, and the bikers were legit.
thats why if you wanna film fish you film fish and then take it off and film LL. there wasnt one LL shot in this. try to keep things more ballanced. the clips didnt change on beat to the music and that is pretty important. try and add some cross fades or something because all your trannys were really jumpy and boring. if your filming fish you usually want to get low and shoot up. and use you should read up on the rule of thirds. they help a lot. and ya agreed to everyone else with the "OHHS" really annoying and inneeded so just cut them out unless its a banger or something

I couldn;t really edit all that well as in the preview the AVCHD played so chopily, on my old comp with 4gb dual core, but now I got 8gb quad core and a better video card so the next one should actually have some editing not just myself putting the clips in a random order and then slapping some music on
personally I hate fisheye, but if you're going to use it, get dirty and REAL close. The editing was nothing fancy; this isn't a bad thing because I didn't notice the editing, which should be the goal. That being said, the bmx riding is good, but not amazing. To make it more interesting, I would use more interesting/creative shots. Put the camera in different places, places you've never seen a camera put and just try it out. If you're just doing a 1 camera shoot, you can use a match edit and cut together a different take off and landing and make it look smooth. Exposure and focus are another area you can improve on. Not sure what you're shooting with, or your level of experience.
Whenever you make something and put it out there for someone to see, you're already taking a step beyond what most people do. Once it's out there and you start to get feedback from it, take it all with a grain of salt. Sometimes you'll get a legit critique of something you did "wrong" but if its exactly what you intended, then you have nothing to defend. Take the criticism you receive and put it in the back of your mind, so the next time you're out shooting you at least have something new to try.
