Tilt shift photography

Been playing a little bit with tilt shift photography today. My first try here (Stockholm). Not the best source image (sky especially, technique tends to look better with whole picture ‘busy’) and perhaps a little bit too strong blur, but still kinda captures the ‘fake miniature’ look:

That’s true. It should be easy to remove this using some clone/stamp/patch tool though.

Nah, I don’t want to tamper with it too much, let it stay as a record of my first tries. I guess I was so preoccupied with trying to find a good place to shot that I totally ignored those branches, I only noticed them after Josh’s comment (..and now cannot unsee them :))

Ok then :) still good attempt… I also want to give it a try but the weather stops me from this.

Looks great! Except for one thing: The foreground tree branches creeping in the top and left. Once my eye noticed these the effect was killed.
Keep it up!

Looks pretty good.

Nice although saturation could be stronger for me :) Did you use tilt shift lenses or just post-processed the image in Photoshop?

Dan: that’s first that I thought was acceptable, still light years from http://www.tiltshiftphotography.net/images/london.jpg , but I’ll try to get there.
Riddlemaster: postprocess.
