The tranistions and time you alloted for the photos vs the beat and speed of the song weren't matching up. I thought it was if you just gave the same time for each photo, put in a vid here and there and then added random popular songs. If you tried, I didn't mean to offend you...but the second video was much better IMHO.
If you ever try another one or wanna fix something up, try quicker transitions. Knock out the fade in and fade out for the techno and up beat songs. Make the transitions happen with the main tempo beat, so a photo changes with the rythum of the music. You could also double up pictures. You know when the intro to the songs always got this fast deep beat...flash the photos, then show them again when the rythum gets normal. Try using different music, too. I think I hear the same songs in every car video nowadays. Kinda drains the energy of watching a cool video if you have to listen to the same songs over and over again.
Oh yeah...and, the first video had repeats of photos didn't it? I know I remember seeing the same car twice.
What editor did you use? Sorry for talking so much, but it brings me back to when my friend and I used to edit skate videos. We used my GL1 and his VX2000 with his computer and Adobe Premier 6. Ebay bought camcorders and a downloaded program off Kazaa...not bad
