An amateurs first test

Just to show, and to get any hints if I'm doing things terribly wrong.

This is mainly just a test I did in three days after I got my camera (XH A1). I know it's not great or anything, but just wanted to hear if it's horrible and maybe get some input.

The whole version (YouTube):

A small sample of somewhat better quality (Not great, my host doesn't allow big uploads):

great visuals along with fitting music. another xha1 A++ video.
I like how you weren't afraid to move the camera there at the end. I'd like to see more.

Thank you both!

I work on a 2X2,5G5 with 5gb ram and FCS2. I shoot in 25F, import to FCP, edit in HDV-sequence but render all effects to ProRes. At least that's the most convenient workflow I have found so far, but I have only just started learning the camera an HDV, I have only been doing some regular DV-stuff with a normal consumer-camcorder until now.
Did that answer the question? I am not sure exactly what you mean by workflow. :)
