Toy Living Room

Nikon N75, kodak 400 max
Ok, this one is definitely not a good shot, but I've been wanting to try this for a while. I took this with the wideangle lens, so it looks a little like the shot was taken from up high, and that's why I thought it was a good candidate. I blurred the foreground and background using photoshop, does it work?

miles is right about the ceiling light. but other than that this is an amazing ps job. and the shot itself is nice too! in fact, this is an inspiration to me.

It works wonderful and could definetely be a living room in a toyhouse in a toytown (which I saw on another site a couple of days ago). Of course the people living there would drive there in their toycar (seen on another site)... :-)

I think it works incredibly well. My first reaction was that it would make a great catalog photo. Some of the foreground is a bit distracting (the bookshelf and ottoman), but the exposure and technique are excellent.

That works really well! You've utilised this technique perfectly :) My only comment is that the ceiling light would be less blurred, but the image looks fantastic.

This one is nice. It looks like a miniature living room set.

I like it...my eyes are drawn to the center quickly...I thought the blurring was photoshopped but I wasn't sure. Usually you can tell when someone adds blur but not here.

I've been wanting to try the same thing and you've pulled it off well. I've seen a couple shots where people gave it a shot and it didn't work and when it's not right it's pretty evident. Well done.

I think it works for what you're going for. I feel like I could reach in and pick that table up, as if it were in a doll's house.

Great photo, not that this is wanted but it screams ikea. Gives off the feeling of comfort. On a note of being a bad photo, there is no such thing in my opinion.

I think it does work. This can be a tricky effect to achieve especially when you've got that many elements in the shot, but you've done it.
I too have attempted this technique and failed. Well done.

I think it is a great shot.. The blurring gives it amazing depth. I love learning new techniques in photoshop and had not really thought about forcing depth of field like this, well done.

i think it's great. Magazine Ad Quality. Of course, you may not like that reference. But, it looks good to me.
