I can’t believe how bloody clever this is – Brilliant.
Brilliant again Ian!
Very clever work Ian. Love how you’ve done this. 🙂

Top bit of blending. Although, how many attempts did it take to get the right position and focal length?!
[http://www.flickr.com/photos/yod] Thanks Martin. I took about 20 photos because it’s only when back home and comparing the new photos with the original that the angles appear – the main angles I considered were the kerb which was easy to line up, and the angle of the building in the centre of the image which isn’t quite 100% but good enough at this scale. Getting the focal length right is more difficult than the position. I took a few at 50mm from way down the road but they weren’t right either.
Edit; in fact, looking at this again I should have rotated my shot by one degree to the left but it’s done now. Bugger.
Hi Ian 😀 Trust you are well. I need to look through your photostream real soon to see what I have missed. Wonderful transition as always! :-)))
Another superb blend.. Great work.
Good example Ian, I’d better shoot some more now!
amazes me how you do these. you must have doctors hands.
[http://www.flickr.com/photos/maycontaintracesofnuts] You really need photoshop Ian. You can use layers and then "Free Transform" to distort/correct perspective. Its a doddle once you know how 🙂 I do home training sessions LOL :-)))
Another great one. One of these days I will have to try my hand ….
brilliant photos one again and info Ian , great work
Great blending, really shows the history
