a cool idea
Tiltshifting is one of those techniques that easily make photos or video look dated unless applied appropriately. Its use in the opening titles to 'Dollhouse and 'Luther' spring immediately to mind. It's not just 'pretty' it's reasoned.
These images, I suppose, are the inevitable conclusion of a fad but still looks pretty good. How would over-familiarity with photography have affected Van Gogh's already quite layered paintings we'll never know, but digital 3D artists seem drawn again and again to Van Gogh's works.
I like the idea, and some of them turned out really cool! :D Though for a lot of them... it was way too blurry and i kind of got distracted by the massive blur in the background, rather than the focused area. Some of them are great though!
This is great transformation of classic paintings by Van Gogh.
Almost a third of a million people have thumbed up this collection. This alone seems to be enough to put some people off. No digital format can replace the experience of actually standing in front of one of Van Gogh's paintings - his brush-strokes even in the parts that aren't 'subject' have their own calligraphy and resonance. But I have to admit this is a thought-provoking effect.
This excellent short film plays with the same idea.
After seeing how tilt-shift photography could make real world scenes appear like miniature models, Serena Malyon, a third-year art student, decided to simulate the effect on Van Gogh's famous paintings. Using Photoshop, she manipulated the light and adjusted the focus to make us see these paintings in ways we could have never imagined.
Amazingly, nothing in these paintings was changed, added or removed. The incredible illusions are all created by the magic of Photoshop.
A cool take on famous art...
massively excellent. superlative.
Vincent Van Gogh!!
Pretty interesting, it looks like the perspective on Starry Night is off a little bit but it's still really cool.
this is actually amazing
This is interesting but not a patch on Van Gogh, I think it takes away the magic of his work somewhat.
i DONT KNOW WHY U WOULD DO IT BUT ITS INTERESTING
I like the pictures, but I think with a little more work they could be even better. The blur used to create the feel of distance seemed to stop in lines, which isn't the way it would look in reality.
What is the inspiration for this atrocity? "What if Van Gogh sucked at art?" :p
love it, very original
