Overall nice shots, but look too "HDRish" not in a good way. And there is a problem with horizon level in a lot of shots.

Yeah, horizon ruins the idea. Why you didn't fix it on post. Overall looks unusual )

Since I had no any photo skills before (not to mention cinema experience) and anyone to help, it was easy to loose something - like horizon for example. So thanks to feedback, I'll try to work on horizons in later videos. As for "HDRish", yes it is. With this I tried to discover limits of Canon, of RAW, of color correction. It is purely experimental one.

I like it and thought it was an effective use of Dutch tilt, you can push it even further. HDR look works for me. Much of it is drone footage--what did you shoot it with?

Dutch tilt brings a really "creative geometry" in composition. It's great when done correctly.
But here we see a slight overall loss of a horizon level.

It is old good Phantom 4 pro. No, it is not it's normal footage. Actually, it is waay too difficult to catch right light and position to shoot like that. For some of drone scenes I'd have to shoot and reshoot several days to catch it right. It is way too difficult since drone footage is not RAW and I's have to figure out how to level pro and semipro footage.
