    Great treatment. It's amazing how dumb our brains are! These giant buildings really do look tiny!

    hey...what lens/camera do you use? these are amazing!
  • Roland Peschetz 8y

    @ sparrow+soap: it was shot with a point-and-shoot camera; sony cybershot whatever. the effect was done in post-processing. glad you like it!

    Beautiful shot! Would have loved to see a larger version.I saw you already answered the camera question. But it looks like it was taken with a tilt-shift lens.. were you behind a glass when you took this??

    Seen on a map. (?)
  • Roland Peschetz 7y

    yes. it was behind a glass (of course) - the CN tower doesn't have any open platforms, which would be, like, really nice for the purpose of taking pictures but might not be comfortable at all with regards to wind and cold; not to speak about safety.

    the tilt-shift effect comes from photoshop's lens blur filter, though.
  • Yash Gupta 7y

    I am surprised you got such a clear photo. Because the glass is usually VERY dirty.

    Seen on my Flickr home page. (?)
  • Gavin 7y

    nice tilt-shift effect ... and one of the best cities in the world.
