Freedom Tower 2008-10-18

It's been almost six months since I've posted anything. Partly because I'm still in Iran, and therefore not inspired enough by the environment to take pictures.

But the purchase of a new 24mm F3.5 tilt and shift lens has re-ignited my love for photography!

Went out last night around town, and captured the above image of Azadi [Freedom] Tower, in Tehran. It was completed in 1971 to commemorate the 2500th anniversary of the Persian Empire. It is comprised of eight thousand blocks of white marble, rising to a height of 50m. Despite being in Iran for so long, this was the first time I stood underneath the monumental structure.

  • Thank you Pixistenz. But there wasn't much processing in this picture. The blur was done with the 24mm Canon Tilt and Shift lens. Only boosted saturation by 8, and contrast by 14.

  • Fantastic structure! Love the selective focus and blurr.
