Tilted, Shifted

Tilt-shift miniature faking is a process in which a photograph of a life-size location or object is manipulated so that it looks like a photograph of a miniature scale model. By distorting the focus of the photo (blurring areas of the photo), the artist simulates the shallow depth of field normally encountered with macro lenses making the scene seem much smaller than it actually is. Many miniature faked photographs are taken from a high angle to further simulate the effect of looking down on a miniature.

Pretty neat technique...check the photos below, all are real life pictures but using the tilt shift method which make it seem like a miniature scale model...
