Looking toward the John F. Kennedy gravesite from the Lincoln Memorial.
Inside the Library of Congress.
Tilt-shift images produce a surreal, miniature effect to otherwise ordinary photographs. A true tilt-shift lens can be quite expensive, but much cheaper fakes exist on Photoshop and Gimp. To be honest, I don't really understand what any of this means; I simply enjoy the effect. These particular images represent my first attempt at making tilt-shift fakes on Gimp. They were taken during my trip last spring to Washington DC, and modified just today.
