Tilt-Shift Photography

Erick sent me a link on Tilt-Shift Photography. Tilt-shift photography is a creative and unique type of photography in which the camera is manipulated so that a life-sized location or subject looks like a miniature-scale model. You can either use an expensive tilt-shift lens or fake it in Photoshop like I tried with this photo . . . kinda looks like, hah? No? Try squinting your eyes. Instructions for the Photoshop version can be found here. Thanks Erick. It was fun trying . . . not as hard to do as I thought.

Thanks Shun Wah. The instructions said to try and use a shot where you're looking down so I picked this one cause I did shoot it from the upper levels.
