On the technical side of things, multiple Redditors agreed that this photograph is a beautiful example of “tilt shift done right,” but many felt just as strongly otherwise, saying that the use of tilt shift unnecessarily sacrifices detail in the scene and that there was no need to hone the focus in on the market because the lights already pull viewers’ attention there.

Another user explained that the image wasn’t actually created using a tilt shift lens but by faking depth of field in post.

    Even though the market is significantly brighter than the rest of the scene, I think it could still have been overwhelmed by its busy surroundings without some kind of selective focus to help out.
