On the Seine

Yesterday's post had tilt-shift photography as its theme, so it seems appropriate to follow this up with a recent example of this technique from my own stream. I shot this tourist boat scene from a Paris bridge last August. First-off, I opted for a rather unusual but I think quite effective trapezoid crop. Secondly, I applied a tilt-shift effect, not in camera (because I do not have such a lens) but in post-processing via the tiltshiftmaker site. I quite like the outcome.
