"Toy University"
General: 2:49 PM on 3/22/06 | Canon PowerShot A610

This is my first experiment with the tilt-shift effect. This was done in Photoshop with an alpha distance gradient and the lens blur effect, as I haven't gotten myself a tilt-shift lens yet...and I'm doubtful that I will anytime soon.

This is a southern looking view of ASU, taken from the Life Sciences Tower. The building on the left houses the air conditioning for the entire university. Only a small part of it is shown in the photo.

A "real" veiew can be seen here.

Wow, what a huge difference between the two images! The tilt & shift image looks like an image of a small model with some Hotwheels parked on the street. Interesting experiment.

Great Shot. Watch out though - I got yelled at for over use of tilt-shift :)

Very cool effect - I like it! The quality of this shot looks great too - not very point and shoot'ish.

wow, i've never heard of this style. those cars and building definitely look fake...like an architectural model or something. i don't understand how the tilt thing works, but it sounds cool!
