The caption reads: the Hebrides (second one)
The fourth photo is made by Stephen Oachs for an international photography competition in 2009. ( no more)

Wow. Amazing thread. :yik:

That last one looks miniature!


That's a special photography technique (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miniature_faking), I've seen it before, it's so weird - it makes everything look like Liliput :vlol:
It can be used in movies too, there was a scene in The Social Network shot that way.
