  • David H-W on 10.12.2009 @ 11:47

    Lovin' the vignetting & the contrast.

  • Ben on 10.12.2009 @ 11:54

    Beautiful shot. Just imagining how it would look as video with the same depth of field. Would be really surreal.

  • Sunil on 10.12.2009 @ 12:04

    Grt shot. Gives me a feeling of miniature. Anyway good capture. Happy clicking :)

  • Oscar on 10.12.2009 @ 12:34

    in a first moment, I thought that was a miniature, but no.
    good, very good DOF

  • Elaine- on 10.12.2009 @ 22:37

    yeah looks like tilt and shift or whatever, very cool picture!!!!

  • Csaba/EyeVision on 11.12.2009 @ 04:41

    This shallow depth of field is amazing. And combined with the heavy vignetting makes this shot outstanding. I love it. Well done.

  • THEYS on 11.12.2009 @ 06:11

    A superb composition and processing, magnificent!.

  • wedding photographers in Orlan on 11.12.2009 @ 08:36

    Amazing . Great treatment .

  • John Maslowski on 11.12.2009 @ 14:26

    Like the low angle of this shot, feels like you can almost reach out and touch the water. A beautiful image with an excellent DOF and processing.

  • Frank on 11.12.2009 @ 14:26

    I like your processing in this image. Beautiful!

  • Marie on 11.12.2009 @ 15:05

  • sherri on 12.12.2009 @ 23:19

    Very impressive capture. I like it in greyscale.

  • Wolfgang on 13.12.2009 @ 06:17

    Great work! I particularly like this "miniature-effect" caused by the dof ...

  • mooch on 13.12.2009 @ 19:17

    Yeah love this type of shot. Looks like it was taken with a lomo.

  • joshi daniel on 14.12.2009 @ 06:36

  • deceptive on 15.12.2009 @ 09:12

    DOF working well here, nice work!

  • Ben on 15.12.2009 @ 10:07

    supersweet Depth of Field.

  • Turnbill on 20.12.2009 @ 11:27

    As other have said - nice DoF on this. Make the water bus look rather in danger of swamping.

  • LightningPaul on 19.01.2010 @ 10:06

    Great DOF, nice image.
