Here are a selection of aerial photographs of the industry around my home town of Middlesbrough that have been manipulated to make them look like they're small scale models.
I did this using Photoshop using a selection of pictures that I found on a website by Middlesbrough photographer Alan Clements. I sent these pics off to Alan and he kindly gave permission for me to post them up here for others to see. The original versions of the photographs can be seen on Alan's site here www.pbase.com/clements
They're in the section marked Industry.
I think they look quite effective, some look better than others, this technique doesn't work on all pictures as well as others. I'd seen some pictures like this of Rome and other famous places but I believe that those images were actually taken with a special lens, this is a quick and easy version to get a similar effect.
Thanks Alan, for letting me use your wonderful photographs. Check out his site for lots of other neat piccy's.
