I saw this photo by Ed Ou of the NY Times today. A fantastic freeze frame of the trouble in Cairo. An image of absolute carnage but with a single female figure in the centre who brings an almost eerie feeling for a single second of peace until the eye wanders to another masked figure hurling a projectile.
With the two very different depths in this photo I felt I should try a Tilt-Shift effect to further highlight the centre of the photo.
You can’t beat the original photo but I feel this effect adds something to the overall ‘feel’.
