The shutterbugs were here since early morning, to claim a good vantage point from which to view the proceedings of an evening event when hundreds of floating lanterns were to be released into the night sky at the same time. It was raining heavily and they have probably waited for hours by now, but nobody would give up their spot.
I’ve always enjoyed tilt-shift photography, also known as miniature faking or diorama effect. It is a process in which a photograph of a life-size location or object is made to look like a photograph of a miniature scale model.
The conventional way to achieve this is to use a tilt-shift lens. However, such illusion can also be simulated by post-processing software. And, in recent years, there are even smartphone apps or camera features that can fake the tiny toy town effect right away.
I think there are plenty of “rainbow bridges” around the world and I have seen quite a few already. This one is the Rainbow Bridge in Taipei City (Taiwan). Hopefully, it is good enough for Weekly Photo Challenge: ROY G. BIV … all the colors are present 🙂
