Shuttle Tilting

It saddens me that the shuttle era will come to and end this year. I just hope its successor doesn't take too long to get off the ground, so to speak. When I saw some photos of the roll-out of STS-130 yesterday, I selected a couple as good tilt-shifting candidates. Below I present to you the results. Endeavor Tilt-Shift

The tilt-shift miniaturization effect doesn't work too well when the subject is so far away.

This one is much better, and looks particularly good large.
