Stourhead

After my first attempt at the tilt/shift kind of processing which I posted on Sunday, I had a trawl through my archive for more potential victims.

I dug out this quite nice little shot of the bridge over the lake at Stourhead (National Trust), and it seemed like a good candidate.

I know it looks a bit like a model, but it's not, that's the whole idea.

Don't ask me why I had ISO set to 800 on a sunny day like this.

I can't help it, it looks like a model train landscape to me. Interesting processing. I'll have to look into this.
Chris Macnamara: It does to me too. I ran through muy whole archive picking shots I thought would work. Google "tilt and shift" to find hundreds of examples.
chris,
this is a very cool!
i came out with something similar
but it was completely unintentional
in any case it works, very cool effect, thanks for sharing!!

Chris Macnamara: Thanks for commenting Jason. It is quite a fun process, but as one of my helpful commentors yesterday said "Horse death to flogged".

Its quite amusing. Does it work with indoor shots of things that are already small?
Chris Macnamara: I guess so. I will give it a try today. Maybe it makes models look like real life?

You'll have to bob over to Flikr and get rooting through all the tilt/shift groups, this is a cracker.
Chris Macnamara: Had a look Max, and they are pretty good, aren't they?
Interesting effect.. it does look like a model... great DOF
Hi Chris, works perfectly. You have generated the classic toy town effect.

nothing to do with tilt shift Chris! Your building a train set and you are trying to throw us off the scent! lol - love the effect. mal
Chris Macnamara: Yes, I have Ivor the Engine and Thomas the Tank circling my living room as I type. wink

This looks so surreal - it would be interesting to try superimposing some larger than life figures to see how that would look!

Chris Macnamara: My next project!Thanks Ingrid.
Aquí creo que has mejorado el objetivo que pretendías! Me gusta mucho más este resultado que el de la "Casa Blanca". Un pic muy bueno!

Here I believe that you have improved the objective that you tried! I much more like this result that the one of the "White House". Pic very good!

I've seen this technique used a few times but rarely to such great effect
Chris Macnamara: Thanks Paul. I am pretty pleased with this one.
