Eemshaven tilt-shift images

A family outing on the occasion of my wife’s birthday, to the nearby German island of Borkum, starting in the northern Dutch port of Eemshaven has given me the opportunity to take a series of pictures of prot activities the should yield nice fake miniature photo’s.

Comparing these two images, I think that the first one better succeeds in tricking the eye, making you believe it’s a miniature scene. The elements contributing to this succes in comparison with the image of the fishing trawler are a higher vantage point, and a greater variety of colour, including blues and reds, and typography. The trawler picture is calmer, with unsaturated green as its main focus, and it was taken from the quay, as opposed to the first one which I took from the upper deck of the ferry.
