It is my opinion that your use of a tilt-shift lens in the photo for the Aug. 31 front page story, “One day down, 68 to go,” is coming across as a bit of novelty. Especially when its blurry, beautiful bokeh all but dominates what would otherwise be an unexceptional image.

Please use sparingly and at much discretion. When I look at photo-journalistic images, I want to see a story, not a lens trick. Or is it illusion?
