Adult Swim break image

Guys this is driving me nuts. I have an image stuck in my mind and I need to find it so I can get it out.

You know how Adult Swim has those still photograph screens with brackets somewhere in the picture that they show before going back to a show after commercial. Well there's that one that's a shot of traffic and there colorful foliage everywhere. There's a railing on a bridge or something similar in the image too.

I really need to find this image.

I know this must sound silly, but it's driving me bonkers.

    Ermm...

    Best I can start with is this page where they have a shitload of Adult Swim bumper images... maybe you'll get lucky there? There seems to be almost a thousand.

    Well that was fairly painless. :D

    To satisfy my curiosity, what were you looking for it for?

    I kept seeing it in my head and that music and the image together (this going to sound so corny/gay) was one of the most beautiful things I'd ever seen. It would just not get out of my head- I kept getting distracted when people were talking to me.

    It looks like one of the landscape models they did for quite a while.

    Well, glad that was an easy solve.

    I know! I'm going through everything he's got on youtube. I knew this thing would lead to good things if I found it.

    Actually I think it's an optical illusion, lense turning or something

    There's a specific camera technique to give the impression of miniature photography when photographing real-life scenery, yes. Someone with a photo background could tell you the technical term...

    I know it involves turning the lense inside of the camera, but I can't recall the specific method of doing it. I think AS uses it.

    A while back when they started showing those bumps I was curious about the technique they used on those pictures so I checked it out. I'm not entirely sure if this is the way they do it, as some of you mentioned a camera technique as well, but theres a simple way to get pretty much the same result in photoshop.

    Ahh I see they mention the lense on there too. But essentially what you do in photoshop is blur the top and bottom of the image which causes the non blurred central strip to seem extra focused. You can also adjust the color levels and such to make it seem more plasticy.

    It's kinda fun to mess around with, some google searches should bring up tutorials if you're interested.

    Could you use some reverse of that technique to make mini cityscapes look big?

    Yes, how do you think they use miniatures while making movies?
