Endeavor Tilt-Shift (crop)I’ve always been fond of photographs of the space shuttle. There’s something truly magnificent about a space-bound rocket sitting on the launch pad. It saddens me that the shuttle era will come to and end this year. I just hope its successor doesn’t take too long to get off the ground, so to speak. When I saw some photos of the roll-out of STS-130 yesterday, I selected a couple as good tilt-shifting candidates. Below I present to you the results.

The tilt-shift miniaturization effect doesn’t work too well when the subject is so far away.

Endeavor Tilt-Shift
This one is much better, and looks particularly good large.
