Tilt Shift Photography

Tilt shift photography (both real and fake via Photoshop) is becoming a huge fad lately. For those of you who don't know what I mean, here is a good article:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tilt-shift_photography

And some great examples:
http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2008...t-photography/

Basically the effect makes real photography look like tiny models. Anyway, I was thinking a thread devoted to these would be fun.

Here is one of my favorites I took of the Lakeshore Drive bridge just South of the Spire lot in Chicago.


Here is a basic tutorial on how to fake it.

Fun effect. Tilt and shift lenses main function is to fix converging lines in architectural shots and to increase depth of field.
