@Alun Lambert: A shot I´ve taken so many times(havn´t we all) I just wanted to do something different with it !!

MrsAmber from West Wickham, United Kingdom

Aahhh...land of my fathers (Well great-grand father who was the Bishop of this magnificent place!) I just love St Davids...it has to be the most calming place in the world for me. Interesting Tiltshift on this!

It has this neat effect,what you've done to this picture...Comes out of a dream sequence or a fairy tale...

@Shutterbug: Thanks for your visit and nice comment !!

grouser from Ludlow, United Kingdom

Aha seen yesterdays now. There was nothing but a strict notice when I went before. Lovely cathedral here but I can't say I am a big fan of the tilt and shift technique.

@grouser: I was in the middle of loading up some shots(including yesterdays) at the end of the week and had to rush off to do something,I completely forgot that I hadn´t reduced the size of the shot for Sunday and ended up with no photo posted until I saw your comment.Cheers for spotting that.
I reckon this will be the last Tilt/shift shot that I do for a while.I´ve tried it out a few times and that´s enough for me now.
Back to some more "normal" building shots when I start a little series on Wednesday !!

wonderful technique of blurring the surrounding.....the result is excellent with the cathedral looking like a miniature

@sawsengee: It´s just the effect I was hoping for,thank you !!

MaryB from Staffordshire, United Kingdom

Oh WOW! you did an excellent job Anthony, the Cathedral works really well, it really does look like it's part of a model villiage.

8 Jun 2009 5:53pm

@MaryB: I´ve done a few of these now and reckon it´s time for a rest.I´m going to pack away my model village and get shooting the real world again :-)
