nice tele lens. (can you share the lens you used?). Good colors. Some HDR technique would be better though (for the buildings). The jumps i guess are from the low res clip? The only questionable problem for me.. is the compositing of the frame. I would cut the lake/river and would give some more “air” on the top or open a bit the frame. Cutting the tops of the buildings isn’t considered as a good composite (personal opinion). The “lack of motion” answer is not a good excuse for rejecting. Cheers.
as Felt tips said the render time will increase significantly.. none the less if it’s necessary for your project, i would recommend to upload it in 8bpc for faster previews and explain in your tutorial how to change in 32bpc before render and why it’s mandatory for the specific item. That’s what i did in a item of mine a while back and never had problem with rejection neither customer complaints.
July and August were unexpectedly good. Best months for 2014 so far…

Happy happy birthday!!
As far as the stock footage becoming an independent marketplace. It seems to be a bit “young” with 64.000 items and with various qualities of clips comparing with other places. So i think it will take some time/years until it can reach the appropriate numbers and quality in order to stand alone. Just guessing..
@SmallScreen Sounds like an idea worth considering
I don’t think cutting of the extended licence from 10x to 3x was a good move. Or at least it should be differentiated.
i’m quite sure that if he were alive right now he would be ecstatic of the hardware & software improvement since then and i bet he would be an AE geek!
one the practical side of things,
the camera movement needs improving / smoothing. The detail level could be far more minimal or with far more detail but now it’s on the middle, not good. The music doesn’t fit with the video and the time length short
and as Zerolink mentioned above, the most important thing is the question “What purpose does it serve?”
I hope this is helpful. Everything is subjective off course and this is my opinion.
one possible solution could be to change the purchase system of stock video like it is right now on photodune. Depending on the dimensions of the item and off course the production value of the clip. Right now many authors have the same items for different dimensions. I can’t see how this can be considered as ergonomic.
