For this week’s photo challenge, Scale, I immediately thought of my photo taken from King’s Park in Perth, of the construction of the new conference centre. It is now complete, but I love the effect created here using th “Diorama” art filter on my Olympus OMD EM5. This mimics the effect you would see using a tilt-shift lens and creates the illusion of a miniaturised scene.

You can see more cool photos at the challenge site, and also at Lucile’s Photo101 Rehab Clinic – please join in the fun!

    Ooh! I like this. I have a miniature filter on my camera, but I only tried it once. I was sitting on my bed taking photos of the walls. I guess that’s why I couldn’t see the effect. lol Now I have to go look for a streetscape or something to properly try it out.

        I hope it stops snowing soon so I can get back out with my camera. It has been a brutal winter. I really must try that.

      Yep that’s right, taken from a lookout on a small hill, looking down over one end of the city. I think the height of the cranes adds dimension…. Thanks love x.
