Nice effect!

I have some similar pictures from those locations (Coit's Tower, Stratosphere and Sears Tower?) which I might try something similar on.

The images are from:

1, 4, 5, 7 - Colt Tower - San Francisco
2, 3, 6 - Plane - Las Vegas

You should try it...

I will do! I think the SF ones look best - perhaps because there's something to really focus on to draw the eye. The others since the blurred area is similar means that there's more chance of someone just assuming an odd smudge on the lens.

Yeah I know, it was more like, "quick find any arial photos I have and play"

You know how it is :p

Still looks good from that angle though... Arial photography really does fool your eye into believing its a model

Yeh, from the Basilica, here is the original - not that different to my lens blurred one!
Gosh... it looks surprisingly quiet. I went when I was in Rome last month and it was always packed - the queue when right around the circle of colonnades! So busy that we decided not to bother waiting to climb the Basilica after waiting to get into the darned thing and the Vatican museum. Perhaps next time, after seeing that view, I might!

I was there last August, it was hot and packed - just not obvious from that pic! As John Paul II had recently died the queues to enter the Vatican 'crypt' to see his tomb were massive also...
