Tilt-Shift Van Gogh

Many thanks to ANIMAL for pointing us in the direction Artcyclopedia’s tilt-focus photo manipulations of famous Vincent Van Gogh paintings — an effect which they achieved by playing around with both the light in the scene and which areas were in focus. The end result is visually stunning, turning familiar works into miniature worlds filled with tiny, Impressionist-style prisoners, wheat fields, and starry nights. Even with works that we’ve seen thousands of times before (ahem, Starry Night), the details that stand out are different thanks to a slight change in perspective.
