Earlier this year I was lucky enough to gain access to the top of my work building. At 36 floors the view is quite impressive. I thought the high vantage point would be a great opportunity to experiment with composing some cool tilt-shift-HDRs!
Normally you'd shoot with a proper tilt-shift lens to achieve this effect - I cheated and used Photoshop to 'add' the desired lens blur. The trick I found, was to know what part to keep in focus to keep the composition interesting enough.
Camera settings for this shot can be found on flickr here.
