Shinny Hockey

    Newer Older

    I am just coming back from Toronto, where I shot a whole load of pictures that will show up here very soon. There was not much doubt about the question which one to post first - if you ask me to post the single one thing that characterizes Canada for me, here it is: a group of people playing shinny hockey in downtown Toronto...

      @fotononia: actually, there is hardly any post-processing on that picture - just a little shift in the white balance. The model effect comes entirely from the lens, a tilt-shift device called Lensbaby.

      Haha, I shot it from the 17th Floor. Yours looks like it's in a snow globe. Very nice.

      Love it. I have a Lensbaby, but I haven't managed to pull off a tilt-shift image yet. Still hoping to!

      I found this photo on Lensbabies 1-2-3.

      Being stuck teaching in Singapore, with no snow in sight for thousands of kilometers, words can't express the emotional surge I get when looking at this picture

      I shot this just a few days later, and a bit over to the right:

      Incredible. The blur, the light, the movement, the colour. Truly accomplished.
