Blurred Rails

Blurred Rails: Real World or Toy Train Landscape?

This Photo was shot as an experiment, off the newly opened City Bridge. The goal of this capture was to imitate or simulate the Tilt-Shift effect. Back in the old days of photography, a special lens was required to achieve this kind of effect. Across the rails, in the background: Denmarks Railway Museum.

Tilt-Shift photography or miniature faking is a creative technique whereby a photograph of a life-size location or object is manipulated to give an optical illusion of a photograph of a miniature scale model.
Altering the focus of the photography in Photoshop (or similar program) simulates the shallow depth of field normally encountered with macro lenses making the scene seem much smaller than it actually is.

In addition to focus manipulation, the tilt-shift photography effect is improved by increasing color saturation and contrast. This simulates the bright paint often found on scale models. Most faked tilt-shift photographs are taken from a high angle to simulate the effect of looking down on a miniature. The technique is particularly effective on buildings, cars, trains and people.
