The idea of this whole tilt-shift project is amazing. Not only is its concept and originality exciting and intriguing, its also captivating. There is something beautiful captured in the world you have created.

Obviously, the saturation is one of the biggest factors in the making of this artwork. While it gives a feeling of an unrealistic view and the concept of the photo, it also makes it a tad too bright. You've got to remember the audience and how they are going to view it. Perhaps this might look absolutely fabulous blown up on a canvas the size of your wall but the colour is too much coming from a computer screen. I would have to squint if my MacBook Pro was fitted with Retina Display since it has been a busy day and I am tired.

All photographers understand that the more pixels there is, the sharper the colours. In your case, you have too much to spare. What I'm trying to say is try playing around with a smaller size setting and amount of saturation. It could increase impact of the photograph because of the lack of processing a brain has to do to focus on a point.

The blur you have going on in this photograph. Though I'm not sure if the horizontal sharpness is one of the properties of a tilt-shift photograph, I'm sure that you've used to much of the blur. Instead of seeing the photograph as a whole, my brain processes the image of a three parted photo. There is separation of the top and bottom blurry part and also the sharp middle. I suggest either toning down the blur or blending it in a bit more. Playing around, you could either make the sharpness concentrated in the middle to create a slight fish-eye effect or lighten the colour of the blurred parts to let the sharp colour in the middle to stand out.

I don't have much else to say given the professionalism of this photograph but I'd like to point out one last thing, the angling. Mind the tilt the photo is on. This photo tilts slightly to the left and the street in the middle is not straight. Although it's a minor issue, it can scatter your attention all over the photograph.

I'm sorry if I did not make any sense at all. I know its not an excuse but I'm tired to the point of being slightly delirious. If I have sounded offensive in any way, I sincerely apologise. When I was a kid, I loved the song Big, Big World and this reminds me of it. I don't know how many times I've used the word concept but I do love yours so much, not to mention the visions these photographs have.
