What are the burst modes like with the Mavic Pro? I guess I assumed that if these things could shoot video, that burst would be no problem.

I've thought about getting one, but honestly, it...

I would love to know the secret to get looks on Flickr. I post there and the views are nothing like what they are here. If there's a magic formula, I haven't figured it out yet. :lol:

I agree on adding some real estate to the left of the train....if you have it. I would also suggest cropping a bunch tighter on the right. Lose the white house. It's nice, but you don't need it...
