I went out tonight, a) because it's starting to get dark a little later and it's quite pleasant to be out in the evening again, and b) because I wanted to take something that better exploits the potential of this tilt-shift lens. Yesterday's shot demonstrated that it's capable of a very shallow DoF, but this one better illustrates the way you can play around with the plane of focus. And while it might not be the most visually striking shot I've taken recently, I really like the interplay between the focussed and blurred areas of the image. I'm also quite impressed with the optical quality of the lens – not bad for an £18.00 lens off eBay :-)
