Just wanted to comment that I like this image a lot, and the title is appropriate.  I assume you applied a blur filter on the foreground / background to draw the viewer's eye to the center, which is a great effect.  My suggestion would be to use a gradient adjustment layer applying the blur so that it's not so abrupt, and not so obvious that you did that.  This would give it more of a natural depth of field look.  Just a suggestion for the future.  Of course, if you didn't do that, then I just made an ass out of myself!

Thank you very much for your thoughtful comment, Patrick! First off, sorry for the late reply. It's quite hard to keep up with all the comments. And don't worry. I don't think anyone makes an ass out of themselves when they try to give constructive feedback. ;) Actually, the blur has a gradient but I thought the photo itself with its colors and composition already had a strong impact. So, I wasn't really too pedantic about the blur. Long story short: You're right, the transitions could be less abrupt. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and I wish you a Happy New Year! :)

Most of the time, I keep my thoughts to myself, but your work is very good to begin with, and I was once called out for making the same mistake.  I learned that there are some people that really examine details in our images instead of "Cool photo, I'm gonna fave it.", never really looking at it, what the artist did past cropping, tweaking, etc.  I've noticed that no matter how many times a deviant will ask for comments instead of faves, it never happens.  I'm glad you took it as constructive, and feel free to return the "favor" if you ever see something in my work.  I hope what years we have left get progressively happier as well!  I also look forward to seeing your progress!

I always enjoy the short focal length in landscape images because they make it feel like a small scale model. It makes the world feel small and large at the same time. There's so much fun to be had with this technique.

I agree, it's great to confuse the human perception of scale. Thank you very much for your comment and sorry for the late reply! Wish you a Happy New Year! :)

Well, you did succeed in creating confusion. Please check out the work of Ansel Adams for a different view. Of course, none of us every come close to what he accomplished, so perhaps it is best we do not try. When you overdo the special effects, you lose the impact. You might also want to check out the Rule of Thirds. Sometimes weird is not wonderful.

Primo liebe ich tilt-shift, secundo gefallen mir die sommerlich-melancholischen Farben sehr! Bravo!
P.S. Nur die Schrift stört, wenn wir schon bei konstruktiver Kritik sind ;)

Vielen Dank für dein Feedback! :) Habe vorhin einen längeren Blick in deine Galerie geworfen und kann bestätigen, dass du den Tilt-Effekt liebst. ;) Ich weiß, Copyright-Hinweise auf Fotos sind immer so eine Sache. Aber nachdem ich gesehen habe, wie oft meine Fotos irgendwo anders im Internet neu hochgeladen werden, ist dadurch immerhin noch ein Hinweis auf den Ursprung vorhanden (es sei denn, die Uploader retuschieren das Copyright heraus und/oder setzen ihr eigenes Logo darauf - ein absolutes No-Go, wie ich finde).

Naja, hab im Leben schon viele Tilt-Shifts gemacht, hier sind nur zwei, die mir am besten gefallen haben! ;) Mit dem Copyright haste natürlich Recht - im Internet ist Diebstahl Gang und Gäbe, somit verstehe ich auch den Hinweis! Mir wurden bisher einige Fotos geklaut, aber das Problem war nicht so immens zum Glück.

I don't know if I already said it or not but the really cool thing about this picture is that everything looks miniature. How exactly did you achieve that? If you don't mind me asking, where did you take that picture?

Thank you! :) The blur makes your eyes believe that this photo is a macro shot. If you want to know more about it, look up "tilt effect" or "tilt shift". :) The photo was taken in South Germany.
