'Miniature' Boats Race on Sydney Harbour in Beautiful Tilt-Shift Video

Author: Jenni Ryall [Mashable]

A 23-second, tilt-shift, time-lapse clip, posted on YouTube channel Media 24h, shows Sydney ferries racing on the harbour.

In the beautiful clip, the ferries appear more like children’s toys in a bathtub, as they competed in the annual Ferryathon on Jan. 26. The tilt-shift effect seen in the video makes the objects appear “miniature,” by using a lens that shifts the depth of field to a diagonal line instead of a straight horizontal plane from the camera.

The race involves the fleet of Sydney ferries going head-to-head on Sydney’s iconic harbour from Circular Quay to Shark Island and back to finish under the Sydney Habour Bridge.
