Default Sharing here for 'rejection week'

Presume tilt-shift is outwith the scope of this site, as this one got a big fat rejection. Thought I'd share it here for the remainder of the week as it's one of my fav's. Also, I had a good response to the tilt shift video I posted of Swiss stock.

Remember, this is a real train, not a model. The short focus, in this case, is done post production.

I am always amazed at how tilt shift photos look! I would like to see more US stuff done like that just to see.

I wonder if it was done with a real tilt shift lens it would have a chance.

Interesting angle of the focus zone, on a diagonal. I think that with a tilt-shift one would need one with an extra dimension of adjustment, such as the new Canon lenses have but I think the old ones do not.

Wait, what? Did you use a tilt-shift lens or did you do the blur in post-production? Or maybe I just didn't follow your post correctly.
