Q: How do I buy more Spotlights? I'm new to the site, and I've actually already bought some, but I've forgotten how to do it!

A: Do you know?

    nice shot, did you use tiltshift software for this effect?

  • David McCrillis

    David McCrillis said (25 Sep 2009):

    Hi, Rene

    No tilt shift for my Motif One. I think because of the natural blur on the water and the blur of the backround it gives that effect. Which is what post processing tilt shifting esecually is. The only post was the bluring of the mordern structures in the backround. Thanks for the props!

    Great pic, looks like a model house. Maybe because of the stillness of the water.
