tilt shift test

My contribution to the tilt shift trend... I simply used a Picassa effect but I am still not convinced by the results in PS or else and honnestly I don't seethe point to alter an image that does not need to be altered especially when the alteration only brings blur to simulate a "model effect". Sorry guys, I tried it once but I am not convinced.

    Mr admin feel free to remove this test as I am not really convinced !!!

    Interesting effect for directing your eye...but I think I agree with you....
    I'll never forget that beautiful pool and its magnificent reflections.

    Pierre, a fake tilt-shift is not just a "blur". The best ones I've seen actually probably took a lot of work and time to be done. You have some great pictures and I'm sure that none of them "need" to be altered for any reason, but just like "small planets", a fake tilt-shift is fun to make and see: it alters your perception of the subject and enables you to see the world with a new perspective (a bit like what KAP can do, isn't that right?) ;-)

    I'm happy to have it in the pool. You seem to have opted for a circle of sharpness, whereas the tilt-shift effect usually calls for a blurred background and foreground with a sharp "strip" in the middle to give the effect of depth. Lovely subject mind, especially with the palm tree in center ground

    I agree with all of you -- tilt-shift is not my thing at all, but this ain't it.

    Pierre, if you want to remove it, you can delete any of your own pix and all the comments with a couple of clicks.

    Pierre, give it just one more try with my "tutorial" which I sent you yesterday (I hope it arrived...). Your try here looks similar to one of my firsts. And I wasn't that charmed about it either. But after a couple more you might develop the right swing.

    I experimented with it in PS on a shot I did on Catalina Island, it's just for fun and I think the effect is suppose to "miniaturize" and give it that macro lens shot.
    I agree with Ric e Ette on the subject...like I said, it's just for fun :-)

    Here is the one I did and I believe there is a quick PS tutorial link inluded.
