I'm still fairly new to timelapse, so help a homie out.

My plan is to shoot this shot from my apartment window once a month for several months, the edit them together and probably throw some b-roll in there as well. This is the first month I've shot, so I'd like to address any problems before I get to deep into the project. So let me know what you think!

Also I'm worried the shot might look a little bland, if you agree do you having any suggestions to spice it up?

so what is going in this area - if it is nothing then shooting it in time lapse isn't going to make it more interesting. try shooting things that change slowly - plants growing, traffic patterns, even paint drying would be more interesting than a space where nothing happens. Work on making interesting compositions and finding things in your world that you would like to see sped up and then shoot those things in time lapse - too many times people think time lapse is the story, it isn't - it is a tool to tell a story - you need a story to tell. go find it.
