the shots are very interesting. the shoreline as seen from the ferry seems very fuild, evenly paced, and the camera is stable. the second shot is a bit slot and the camera moves a bit.
when assembling shots like these into a larger film, is usually makes sense that the scene is unfolding in the same direction, say right to left (as in the first clip you include here).
remember: there is a written component to the blog, you have to explaing to us why you're doing these shots, why you chose them, etc... this is supposed to help you become aware of the larger issues that will become the foundation for your film!
I really like the first video because it looks like your standing still and the water is the only thing that is moving but in reality your on a boat and you and the water are both moving.
Its a really cool and inventive way to create a panoramic image of NYC.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
