Clip to share - asking for feedback [Formals]

If you are one of the VU regulars you can skip to the next thread. I have posted this clip few days ago to consolidate some feedback. Here is what I've included in the original post:

Considering the extra time with this project, I wanted to share a clip that would normally fall in-between the ceremony and reception. It is a little different than what I normaly include on my DVD's since all the typical pre-reception items have been taken out (I have created another montage to handle those). This would end up on the final DVD as Formals.

Iím open for feedback (both negative and positive) since this usually gives me a good sense of what I need to concentrate on in terms polishing technical skills.

Any feedback will be highly valued.
Thank you.

Hey Marcin- first I'd like to welcome you to DVinfo, it's nice to see you here.

I enjoyed the clip...very smooth and relaxing. Good pace, interesting variance of focal lengths and camera moves. If I had to choose one thing that could be improved upon it would be the shot selection. I mean that in regards to many of the shots being very similar but from different angles. However this IS a formals piece and it's not always easy to get lots of unique subjects to shoot from whatever angle you choose. Zoom in look for expressions, laughter etc. You did include some nice cu shots- including a nice one with the bride cheek to cheek with another bridesmaid.

Thanks for sharing and keep up the great work. I see your skills sharpening already. Good job.

It's great to hear that from the MAN himself. :)

Thanks Glen!

* those multiple shots have in fact been eliminated per suggestions I got from the VU crowd.
** How is that new desk of yours?
