Tilt Shift Taurus by maikarant Tilt Shift Taurus by maikarant
A picture I took while standing on a bridge just before the European soccer championship 2008 started in Austria. The ÖBB (Austrian Railways) painted one Taurus each in the colours of the participants.

I tweaked the picture a bit to get a tilt shift effect because the original was a bit boring.

Notice the small red speck in the background? One of the engines got derailed just before they could line all of them up. :O

Yep. :) Although I did just take part at the very last part at Wien-Penzing. They were lined up like that right opposite a bridge where I was heading to take this photo.

:bow: Thankyou!

yes, but I mean specially red/while/blue, from top to bottom.
netherlands, and Luxemburg.

the netherlands one is the one in from, this can be seen on the blue, which is darker in the netherlands flag.

Cool shot!

Your depth of field makes it look like a photo of a model railroad!

Wait so, is this REAL or a FAKE? Because it looks like a miniature train set to me! :P If it's real, it looks like a toy, and if it's a toy, it looks real! :D

It's a tilt-shift modification of a real photo. I was standing on a bridge over those tracks, and the modification adds a miniature effect. If you search for "tilt shift" you should be able to find some tutorials which give you an idea how to apply this effect. It's ideal for railroad pictures. :D

I know quite a few people who work for the Austrian Railway... sometimes you're reminded to attend good occasions to take photos. :) Thanks!
