Tilt Shift Experiment

18mm f4.5 1/80s ISO200
This is an experiment for me.  I am becoming more and more fascinated with "Tilt Shift" photography and the effects it can have for miniaturizing your subjects. (check T/S examples) So without the expensive T/S lens you are relegated to after shot processing.  This site is a great little toy to play with.   you'll quickly learn that most photographs don't make the change effective.  There is a perspective needed to make it really translate well.  As described, a downward view onto large areas works best. You'll see this in the example link.  I played it up with this one using my style of low perspective.  Here is a series of the photo as I stepped it through the process.  Elk River Falls is a 50ft drop into a very large pool for reference.
