I love tilt-shift videos. The first time I saw one and not know what tilt-shift was, I really thought they were miniatures, until I saw a shit-ton of detail on the video that it could not possibly be miniatures.

Looks good!
..maybe a little sharpen or high pass on the center area.

I understand that you use a picture and tilt another then blend it in but I don't see how that gives the picture that awesome "miniature/fake" feel to it.

A real tilt-shift picture requires a specific kind of lens that has moving (tilting/shifting) parts. That means that the camera, or more specifically, the image plane (film/sensor) remains in the same place while the lens moves. This effect causes the rest of the image to become blurred while a specific area is kept sharp - this is also known as selective focus.

At least this is what I understand. I never tried using a tilt/shift lens myself so I only have the theory, not the experience.

As for why, that's a trick your brain plays. It also helps to make the colors slightly more saturated to enhance that "plastic texture" in the picture. This one had saturation up to around 75%.

@Shomari:
Yeah...using the facebook link didn't really help either. So I changed it to the one in my dA account. I'll keep your suggestion in mind next time I do pseudo tilt-shift photos. Thanks =)

Ahh I feel like I'm looking at Terminal in mw2 D:
(that's not negative)

But maybe more of the safety rail should have been 'tilt shifted'. right now the border of where it's shifted is a bit...'heavy on the eye'? it seems unnatural to look at it.

it looks pretty awesome though, like real life video game bloom effects :P

Okay, in all seriousness now,

Judging by the posted vid, I think you went a bit overboard with the blurring, making it look well, weird.

Hmm... there's definitely room for improvement. Then again, this was a first-shot thing - took me literally less than 2 minutes to do it. I just wanted to try and see if it works. When I find the time, I might retouch it again since I still have the original photo intact.

Honestly, I really don't like this result but since I'm on a tight schedule (and I'm too lazy to go back and redo it properly), I just left it as it is.
