Thought I needed to go to the opticians, looking at this, Steve An intersting effect. Carol
How are you obtaining a tilt-shift effect? What process are you using? Is the result what you wanted? Need some more information before any critique can be helpful.
I'm using Photoshop Cs3.I open image switch to edit in quick mask mode, choose grad tool set it to reflected gradient, click on image and draw a straight line to represent the part of the shot to be in focus,switch back to edit in standard mode and click filter,blur and apply lens blur tweak it a bit add a bit of contrast and thats the result.
the result achieved was ok but iv seen better i find its just a mater of trial and error. thanks for taking time to comment
OK, - I understand what your getting at. The tilt shift used to provide selective depth of field. I can only say that theres no really sharp area I can see in the shot Steve, so I wonder of the process as you say needs tweaking to get that area you want in focus to be sharper. I will have a go at this myself, - never tried it before.
I've done this a few times, having found a tutorial somewhere.
It works best if the shot's taken from above the sharpest part of the subject, much as you have here. The problem that I think you have here though, is that the sharp part has to be absolutely sharp for the effect to work at its best and this is a bit soft.
I also think that the blurred area here is too blurred.
As you say though, it can involve an awful lot of trial and error.
Thanks Willie its a bit of a leaning curve for me as well i just thought id have a go at it after i saw a few sites and a few shots that this affect had been applied too get the miniature look. but that's the good thing about photography there's always something else new to learn.
i have to agree it is trail and error, i had a go at this last week and as you say the vantage point is the main factor, here is the link for the this shot was taken from the top of a hill. i think i might have got a bit carried away with the processing with this weeks upload.
thanks again for taking time to comment.
sorry link did not work its about 3 shots back in my pf, theres some thing else i need to learn how to insert a link!!!
Good Job Steve. Agree with some of the comments above but I think the tweaks are minor and easily achieved.
