Hi Arun,

The opening shot with the matchsticks was cool, I like how you did that.

The volcano looks like it suffered from comping issues. The various elements aren't sitting properly in the scene.

The day to night adjustment hasn't quite been successful. You still have lots of green that should be more blue.

The houses are too bright, they should mostly dark apart from the bits that are lit artificially.

The clouds have to much white in them still.

The plume of smoke from the volcano needs to be matched better to the clouds in the background.

I did a very quick paint over to explain:

Similarly, you're other shots from that sequence are suffering from comping issues.

Dear Kev,
It was really helpful to read through your critique. Thanks a lot, in fact, for being my first critique. I couldnt give it more time to comp them, then. But, now that I can, I'm gonna put it all into comping them right, with all your points going into them. Thanks once again. It really helps to hear from a third-person.

This was my first attempt at live-action footage, so there were many areas I've been lacking in. Am planning to put a second version with some new shots too, and am looking forward to hearing your critique on them too..
