kevina's house

This was taken using the x 1.7 teleconverter and tripod. The Acacia that you see was actually about 100 metres away from the hut but the teleconversion flattened the perspective to make it look like it was overhanging it.

Not only your flattened perspective made it overhanging, your tone, the light and the blur made it moody and haunting.

It definitely creates a very intersting effect. The not so common light together with the way the teleconverter flattened the perspective made this shot look like something out of a Tim Burton's movie :) It almost looks like the tree is extending its "arms" and it's about to engulf the little hut..
