"tilt-shift" is a method that the objects on real picture that were taken from a higher altitude can look like models.

You can acchieve this effect with using a special lens or with Photoshop CS2 + CS3.

Simply, my question was, if i have acchieved this effect the way it should look like. Or if i have failed the attempt to acchieve this particular effect.

It is Dubai, it's the Dubai Marina.

I admit I'm not an expert, yes it does look miniature to me but I'd add the blur at the very bottom as well to simulate shallow depth of field better.

Also, I've seen other pics on which the buildings on the foreground are left sharp and their surroundings are blurred. Further fakes the "model" perspective.

Good luck with miniature faking mate, its a fun technique!

Did you black out the horizon? Because that's what mostly makes it look like models in my opinion.
