In the words of the magnanimous Derek Zoolander: "It needs to be at least... three times bigger than this!"

In all seriousness though, welcome to the teeny tiny world of tilt-shift photography. Making the world's tallest building look as if it belonged in Mr. Roger's neighborhood (and what a wonderful place to belong), this photography technique is nothing short of wizardry.

A quick wikipedia search will tell you all you need to know about the masterful technique; dumbed down it's basically when you selectively focus on certain parts of a scene, while tilting the camera lens parallel to the image plane.

If you're as blown away as I am by this beautiful shot, make sure to check out the Beirut version here. Tis lovely.
