[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I captured this famous landmark of Paris from the Eiffel Tower. This view provided me a good focus point to a miniature composition, so as I did yesterday, I used the ’Fake Shift-Tilt’ tool of Photoscape trying to cover the Arc de Triomphe.
Any further suggestion, idea is warmly welcome!

merhaba dear Kristof..
verynice shot and pov...

Hi Kristof,
What a superb PP work vith excellent cityscape.TFS.


Hello Kristof!
Nice panorama! Look very interesting with this blurred effect!
Best regards!

Hi Kristof
you are really enjoying with this new miniature serie but it s pleasure for us too
wondrful this one

Bonjour Kristof
I cann't say I'm fond of that process of "mignature model" and I don't see its real interest except as a ppwork exercise .On the other hand, I'm quite amazed by the quality of your shot from Eiffel Tower and should be pleased to see it as ppw add on.The sharpness is very good on the Arc de Triomphe (and sorry if I must tell you that the base -only the base- has been altered by the "model" process),the POV wonderful, and the quality of the primitive shot at the same high level.
Of course you can see here that it is a very alone "IMO" and I cheers you to continue experiments however.
Have a nice sunday

HI Kristoff
I would love to see this fantastic shot in its natural state without the pp.
As an experiment its strange,I am sorry but I have to say that I don't really care for it, but if that is what you were aiming for then you succeeded.
Keep experimenting, its trial and error and people like me who
have negative criticism that help us learn.

ciao kristof
un lavoro con i fiochhi
ottimo scatto
grande lavoro

Nice use of the tilt-shift PP work. Perhaps a little extreme on the in-out of the blur, it should be more gradual - the bottom and top of the Arc are both blurred, which takes away some of the effect.

Even so, great effort and I hope to see more.


Hello Kristof,
My taste would much rather have had the complete scene in focus, but as far as I can see the effect you are attempting works well, if you are drawing the viewers attention " JUST" to the immediate area surrounding and of the Arc itself. I find the out of focus perimeter a distraction as my eyes will not focus immediately upon the scene...

Hi Kristof...

Excellent photo and beautiful view from the Eiffel Tower..!
Wonderful shot, sharpness and colors.
Perfect details and well composed photo...
Best regards,

Nice experiment Kristof with this Photoscape specially in this shot , my only crit would be the famous Arc de Triomphe is smack in the center of your frame , on the other hand i also confess that the effect probably works best with this location yet it does look miniature and the light is superb , i like this , i gave it a try with one of my own shots earlier this morning and it has a way to get you really, thanks for sharing the view,i heard say it's pretty expensive going up the tower !

Hi Kristof,

Nice effect of my favorite city! These shots are fun. I would like to see a bit more of it in focus. I've not tried shots like this before, but they always bring a smile to me! Tres bien!! Lisa
