My previous faked tilt-shift shot proved quite popular so here's another one, also taken in San Francisco: this time, from Twin Peaks. The flag is at the junction of Market Street and Castro, about a mile away. We'd been up to Twin Peaks the night before to try to get some night shots of the city but were defeated by some of the densest fog my host could remember and he's lived in San Francisco for mumblety years.

I've mentioned before how much I like this lens. The green street sign near the flag is legible in the full-resolution version. I'd be able to tell you the price of petrol, except that Chevron weren't displaying it, that day.

I'm not sure if the effect I've created in this photo, with the diagonal band of focus, is actually possible with a real tilt-shift lens. To be honest, though, I don't much care! Smile

I hope you like it. All comments and criticism appreciated, as always.

Dave.

yes I've emulated shift/tilt lens before to experiment with compositional ideas before using a real one... they are great, especially when used to direct attention in a complex scene like this
