Hej Trond

You got some nice shot there… I love the low angle on the creek. You have created a story about something that is really not much to say, but you did. Well done.

Yes, the XM2 really deliver great colors. Hardly ever is any color correction needed.
I'm glad you like the video.

I thought having the buildings reflected in the water instead of filming them directly would be a cool effect.
Good to hear you like it.

You are right, telling a story about almost "nothing" is hard.

Thank you for the comments! I appreciate.

I'm a flowing water junkie so anytime I see shots of flowing water, I'm a happy camper.
I'm also a 60fps junkie so I would have loved to seen some of these opening shots in slow motion.
Loved the low angles, makes you feel like you're right on the water.

It was a bit of a jarring cut when you had the hen mallard preening and then made another cut and then another. Not sure if you were trying to hold a preening shot to stay on screen until the VO about preening was done or not.

Really good job handholding. I was busy watching the ducks so it really doesn't even register on most shots.
