DC time-lapse short (and hyper-lapse) using the Pentax K-3

Hey fellow Pentaxians!

It's been a while since my last post.
I've been working on some time-lapse projects recently. Here is one taken in DC around the Washington Monument area, around the peak Cherry Blossoms season.
(Note that there are some scenes with flicker, which I've not been able to fix in post.)

Equipment used:
Pentax K-3
Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5
Rokinon 8mm fisheye
Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8

Settings for the most part:
Interval: 2s
Shots per scene: 150~210
FPS: 30
Edits in Lightroom CC and LRTimelapse 3
Final compilation in Photoshop CC
Camera exposure settings varied for different scenes

Music: 'Sunset Breeze' by Karmic

Hope you enjoy it!

Nice work. I think I might have seen you on location -- it was someone with a K-3, at any rate.

Nicely done! I especially like the day to night transitions. Are you using bulb ramping techniques for any of the scenes?

Haha. You probably might have. Hopefully I wasn't being "that guy with a camera", getting in people's way.

thanks! no bulb ramping.....close to 30 min between sequences but I try to maintain the same frame (anymore) plus the pause of showing stills for a few seconds gives that false transition (time wise) from day to night......i'm not on vimeo so not sure how to keep up with your work......?
