Small village of Villaflores at drone eye's view
A round hole in the facade of the main house of Villaflores betrays that time has stopped. There is no longer the clock, because someone has stolen it, as there is no bell in the small church whose doors are forced and receive the visitor to show a gallery of latest generation graffiti. The town of Villaflores is a decadent scene where the centuries-old architectures are decorated with more typical urban environments, with walls fenced in and overpowered by thistles and weeds and roads dotted with filth: rusted cans, plastics, trash ...
The pill of bricks that rise among the lush green vegetation draw profiles in complicated balance that intend to continue going through two-story houses. The dovecote, circular in shape, lifts its silhouette without bites, as if it were trying to maintain the dignity that other buildings have already lost, ruling as a turret an esplanade from which the high-speed train passes. It seems that the roads mark the border between Villaflores and Valdeluz, past and future, cities born from nothing to fulfill dreams of times tremendously remote among themselves, although they are hardly separated by a century.
This agricultural colony was specifically the dream of the Duchess of Seville, benefactor of the city of Guadalajara to whom is owed, also, the extraordinary complex of Adoratrices. There is very little left of that dream that its architect, the brilliant Ricardo Velázquez Bosco, turned into reality. The abandonment, with its erosions, but also the vandalism, with the thefts of materials or the games without consideration of the young people that for generations until there have approached, aggravate a situation of ruin that the most sensitive voices already denounced thirty years ago.

You nailed it again! Beautiful scenery, colors, flying and edit. I really really enjoyed watching every seconds of it. I have a few questions:
1) Which editing software?
2) Camera settings?
3) Did you use any LUTs for this footage?

Thanks for sharing this video with us!

Thank you very much for your comments!! and trying to reply to your questions:

1.- Adobe After Effects for video transitions and Davinci Resolve for edition
2.- D-Log, custom +1/0/0, everything in manual mode and polarized 16 ND. It was a complicated day as sometimes the sun was shining and a little bit later, covered by clouds, again shining, ...
3.- Yes, a free LUT was used for based colour grading, it was modified and created a new one with final settings. If you're interested, I can send to you.

Again, thanks for your comments and interest!!

Thanks for the details. How do you compare D-Cine and D-Log? I have seen several bad comments about D-Log profile but your footage is very nice. I think I should try D-Log. I would appreciate it if you send me the LUT.

I think D-Log can be superior with perfect light configuration in camera but as soon as camera is oversaturated or under, you get a pretty amount of artefacts in small things in movement (grass, trees, image seen
trough a fence, ...etc). But I think this is a very subjective opinion, it's very difficult compare.

Send me a PM to tell me how to send you the LUTs

Surprising, in this scene was very easy to add the effect. Yes, the result looks very well but making the images at the beginning of the scene to look with very low definition.

I'm sending you LUTs a soon I will be with home laptop.
