    how has this been done???!



    This is a picture I saw on http://www.littman45single.com/.
    The begin with, I LOVE this photograph. I think it's pretty gorgious. But how has this been done? I don't see one depth of field:

    the car is sharp, the building behind it is not. the building on behind that is. then there is blur again, and at the horizon all is sharp!

    Is this photoshop gaussian blur or something like that?
    Or is some photographic technique goin on I don't know about.

    Like to hear something bout this.
    Thanks GAME

    The image appears to use view-camera tilts to move the plane of sharp focus from the usual vertical position down to almost the ground. Thus, objects like the buildings extend up past the plane of sharp focus and become blurred.

    Yup, just some front tilt here. Most any view camera can do it.

    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    That was my first impression too!
    The very small DOF is a result of working close-up.

    If you go to the site I think your questions will be answered.
