Dover Docks - Tilt shift

My Get Pushed challenge this week was from Wendy who asked me to produce a tilt shift picture. This is my second attempt - this could become addictive! Shame the weather wasn't better this afternoon.
@wenbow Hi Wendy, this is my second attempt at your challenge. I had hoped to get nearer to the lorries but it was raining, and I'm very much a fair weather snapper!

PS We're Get Pushed partners again this week - Just an idea, but how about swapping our challenges from last week, you do tilt shift and I do hands/long exposure at night? Please say if this isn't suitable.

Nice image. I like the bleakness that the weather has created in this image.

Well done and quite convincing.

think the tilt shift works really well with this scene

This works very well with the concentration of subjects in the centre.

Okay, I need to ask a bimbo question: what is a tilt shift?
posted January 22nd, 2018  
@casablanca You're speaking to a fellow bimbo, I had to Google it too! It's making something look like a toy or miniature scenario by taking it from an elevated angle, and then blurring the top and bottom thirds leaving the subject in sharp focus. That's the theory anyway!

@fbailey Oh okay, you managed that then!! I've never heard of it before LOL!! Glad I am not alone in this.

@casablanca Before joining Get Pushed nor had I! Have learned lots of new things through the challenges - why not give it a go?

@fbailey I see people say they are doing it but I have never worked out what that actually means! How do you get on it and how does it work? And can yoy opt out periodically?

@casablanca If you go to Discuss, Themes & Competitions, it's the 4th topic down and that should give you all the information you need. You just need to reply to say you'd like to be added to the list. And yes, you can opt out whenever you need/want to! Hope you join up:)
