interestingly, as much as this effect is fun to play around with, each of these photos were favorites before i tried this tilt-shift effect and i'm sure i prefer them in their original form. but, this does have its own appeal. i am such a "straight out of the camera girl" that i have a tough time with any post processing i guess!

(and elisabelle, for you i have put up the first one with its original)... :O)


  1. i really like the first one and would love to see it without the effect to compare!

  2. This post makes me sigh! I wish I could be a a "straight out of the camera girl". It is so classic! I will definitely improve my shooting skills and try to be independent from PS. ;)

  3. Ah, I know what you mean. The tilt-shift effect is fun to play around with, but in the end, I too prefer the original photos. There is something to be said for the immediacy of an image just as it is.

  4. Wow! I don't know anything about cameras but what I did find interesting was the way my eye fell on overall composition of the picture but then after scanning it for a moment or two, learnt how you had chosen what the focal point for me. This kinda gave me two readings of the image, if you know what I mean. It would be an interesting line of inquiry to pursue, don't you think?

  5. I love this effect really. And I love the colors, they are so great.

  6. thank you!
    you know what? i love them both:)

  7. I love this effect, but only on few pics.
    we use it in video a lot in my job.
    i guess i am like you (for the effect).
    but one in a while it's fun to try...

  8. The effect adds some surrealism to all the pics, but I understand what you mean about sticking with the original. I do like the bridge lights very much though...
