"The Sunday Challenge": Tilt-Shift

First time I am doing an Tilt-Shift on purpose.

We have the yearly "Løkken Pepsi Max Grand Slam" Beach Volley tournament this weekend, so I went in there and climbed the biggest nearby dune and took this shot.

The dune wasn't high so I used perspective control to tilt it slightly to give more height feel and then added blur.

Original can be seen in note.

Great job Thomas, I like the way the Mikasa banner/flag (?) makes the players look so small. Just enough blur and great colorful image. :)

Fabulous first time effort Thomas and an inspired choice of subject too. For me about the only thing you could have done to possibly improve on this would have been to have somehow 'smoothed' the figures out so as to make them look slightly less real if that makes sense! ;)

Thanks a lot for you feedback and kind comment autofantasia :)

I see your point, there is kind of too many details to make the players look as miniatures. Not sure yet have to change it.
