As every photographer, I love to play with new gear. So when I found out that a friend of mine had a tilt-shift lens, I immediately had to borrow it to take a few shots :) It’s really interesting how you can affect whats in focus and whats not with a lens like that. But as it was a 90mm lens, I had to go somewhere high up and far away to get the effect I wanted. So where else to go as to my favorite spot in Bratislava, the top of the SNP bridge. And as you can see, the result is quite interesting :)

This is a manual blend from three exposures, created in Photoshop.
