Pushing the New Tilt Shift Lens (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Digital original, 5 frame exposure blend
There is a certain magic about twilight - when the sky is deep blue, and the city lights come alive. With the new ultra-wide 17mm tilt-shift, I could be quite close to St Paul's and still see the sky above.

I was actually quite surprised I could see the entire basilica in this image - I couldn't have moved any further back as I was already standing right against the fence between the street and the old burying ground across form the basilica. A totally amazing lens!
Digital infrared original
The combination of the ultra-wide angle of the 17mm tilt-shift lens, and the infrared camera making the image takes a relatively common scene on the Halifax waterfront, and makes it a little more eye-catching!
