"Tilt-Shift miniature faking is a creative technique whereby a photograph of a life-size location or object is manipulated to give an optical illusion of a photograph of a miniature scale model.
Altering the focus of the photography in Photoshop (or similar program) simulates the shallow depth of field normally encountered with macro lenses making the scene seem much smaller than it actually is.
In addition to focus manipulation, the tilt-shift photography effect is improved by increasing color saturation and contrast, to simulate the bright paint often found on scale models.
Most faked tilt-shift photographs are taken from a high angle to further simulate the effect of looking down on a miniature. The technique is particularly effective on buildings, cars, trains and people. "
Those are pretty good, I don't like the text tho. I'm not into this technique yet so I can't CnC except to say it looks good to me.
Very nice shift-tilts daniliard. I also think the second one is the best. Also try sharpening the non-blurred parts. This may help the illusion of toy models. And try what Energy said by increasing saturation.
