      A lovely piece of work Gary! A compelling comp and a *really good* decision made re: the focal length. You’ve got a super clean/crisp shot that really captures the warmth of the space, as well as the sophistication of the design – your client must’ve been thrilled, yes?!! I also like the brighter light on the right side of the shot.

      If I had to offer anything, Gary, I’d have suggested a fake tilt shift lens technique here. I think raising the camera about 3-4” would’ve created some terrific separation between the island and the far counter top. Indeed, adding to that strip of rich, brown wood that's already showing between the island and the lower cabinetry, would’ve served to frame that lovely white island top even more! Finally (and this is a nit-pick,) I’d suggest some re-positioning of some of the staging elements on the far counter, as having that tray with the bottles/glasses/plants so close to the vase of white flowers (and also in the same visual field as the cutting board and accessories on the island top) makes that area feel a bit congested.

      Regardless. this is a *terrific* piece of work, Gary. I’ve come back to view it many times! Well done!

      Tony, I have herd you mention the "Fake tilt shift lens technique" Is that a way to create the look of a tilt shift lens while using a normal lens???

      The way I understand it, there are two ways of doing a "fake tilt shift":
      1) shoot wider and crop
      2) tilt or turn the camera and correct in post
      I will let others comment on which is the best way... other than buying a tilt shift lens, of course!
