Fake Tilt-Shift Photography

All of the following pictures are based on a technique called "tilt-shift miniature faking". In this particular case, the effect was applied digitally, with Photoshop CS3. Most important to archive the miniature-effect is the view angle when taking the original picture. Best results are always archieved when choosing a higher position and looking down on the object to be photographed.
This miniature-faking effect is even more impressing, considering the simplicity of image editing, which is based just on blurring the picture's background areas and colour editing (saturation & contrast). The rest of the miniature illusion is simulated by one's brain. Teriffic!

All of the pictures were shot in Cologne, around the river Rhine, in 2008.
