your tilt-shift-lens has astound us AGAIN(:
i like the prespective, its interesting how you usually do a looking up view, but you chose a bird's eyeview instead this time.
great shot(:

I just watching river Danube flood from TV news,
Is it Toronto flood?
what’s the taxi waiting for?A big wave?

Is that real? It looks like a model.

Is that a real tilt/shift pic? Or is it photoshoppped? Only the photographer knows for sure ;-)

i like this one sssooooo much, but i just can't say why.... It looks like some kind of pictural lullaby to me.

Anyway, i've never seen that city so empty, must have been really early...

is that tilt shift? or is it lensbaby?

Great that JUST the cab has color.

Posted by Chantal at April 25, 2006 07:04 AM

I love this one. I imagine a similar view of the ROM when completed would yield some amazing reflections.

Posted by Scott MacDonald at April 25, 2006 07:46 AM


But you have done some Photoshopping on this, right?
Looks a little artificial or maybe like a set from sin city ;)

With kind regards,

Neat! Like this one.

Posted by A thinker at April 25, 2006 08:32 AM

funny...we posted similar photos today.

i like all the shadows in this one.

Posted by Sanjin at April 25, 2006 08:36 AM

This is really nice. So many elements floating equally!

Posted by James at April 25, 2006 08:40 AM

Amazing shot. It's very surreal looking. Nice use of DoF. I love how the lone cab draws your attention.

Is this using a tilt/shift lens? (sorry couldn't get into forum :)

Posted by Toby at April 25, 2006 09:28 AM

Great angle and elevation for this shot. I know this place well!

Posted by Dave MacIntyre at April 25, 2006 09:29 AM

Oooh, neat! One of those tilt/shift pics that are so popular just now. Did you create the effect in PhotoShop or do you have a tilt/shift lens? This pic turned out really neat.

Posted by cathy at April 25, 2006 10:06 AM

Wow, so this is actually a *real* view and not a model?

Posted by fields at April 25, 2006 11:18 AM

Looks FAKE. Looks like a really good model of that street. Even the 1 person in te street looks like a toy.....

Posted by Ed at April 25, 2006 11:35 AM

Wow this looks like a miniture village or something you see through a magnifying glass, sooo good!

Posted by Steve at April 25, 2006 11:50 AM

Looks just like one of those miniature world exhibits I went to as a kid but so much better! The reflections of light (?) on the road are amazing, as are the ones on the buildings.

I don't know how you could be so patient. I'd sooner give up and take a picture of a tree.

Well done!

Posted by teod at April 25, 2006 01:02 PM

uuuuh... and THIS!

Posted by teod at April 25, 2006 01:04 PM

Looks like a miniature or something. Awesome shot!

Posted by Elisa at April 25, 2006 01:50 PM

wow, simply amazing!

Posted by Dacian at April 25, 2006 01:58 PM

Yeah, I thought this was a picture of a model, too, from when you were at that place in Germany (?).

Now, your challenge is take a picture of a model town and make it look *real*! Excellent work, as always! :)

Posted by Mike at April 25, 2006 02:09 PM

Nice reflection!

Posted by Benjamim at April 25, 2006 02:15 PM

theres more than one person in this shot... i can count about 7 :)

nice shot btw

Posted by dan at April 25, 2006 02:51 PM

It looks like a scale model. Good work!

Posted by Wolfgang at April 25, 2006 03:29 PM

Whatever you did, this is very cool. Love the shadows and reflections.

Posted by Laurie at April 25, 2006 03:39 PM

Well worth the wait, perfect timing! I love the hustle and bustle, but more with the dead spots in between.

Posted by Steve LLamb at April 25, 2006 05:56 PM

Wow... great effects! I never get tired of seeing real life in toy-form...

Posted by cibbuano at April 25, 2006 06:27 PM

A perfect composition! All of your efforts really paid off, this is a phenomenal shot!

Posted by micki at April 25, 2006 06:45 PM

I just want to say that your photography is amazing. I have been following this site for quite a while now.I recently got myself a new digital camera. It's nothing fancy - just a point and shoot, but since I do really like snapping photos, I have employed some of the techniques that I see on this site into my photos. I even spent the money for a floor size tipod to stabilize the camera for senery since I tend to have abitof a shaky hand. Thank you for your inspiration, and keepup the good work. - Nate

Posted by Peety at April 26, 2006 01:45 AM

Awesome shadows!

Posted by Matt Bamberg at April 26, 2006 02:04 AM

I love that Tilt-Shift effect. That is the coolest technique ever.

Posted by Michael Caron at April 26, 2006 10:31 AM

It is really hard to believe that you did'nt use photoshop. Anyway, it is also a very good shot and composition.
You have a great success with this photography.
I appreciate it.

Posted by François at April 26, 2006 03:30 PM

I like the tilt-shift effect. It almost looks like a miniature city. The selective focus is stunning!

Posted by Abe at May 4, 2006 05:15 PM
