The olympics just ended in London and without cable at home I was mostly crawling around news sites online to get my olympics fix. I was excited to find that beyond the typical and very excellent sports photography inundating papers and blogs, there were a few more artistic styles being popularized by photographers. One of them was Tilt-shift Photography or Miniature Faking. While true tilt-shift photography requires special equipment, it is possible to replicate the effect with digital post-processing. I decided to try my hand with a few photos from my trip to Europe.
The effect works best on pictures taken from long range from a high vantage point and unfortunately, I wasn’t taking a lot of those during my trip. But take a look at a few of my efforts and let me know what you think.

I love the church interior, the boat, and the beach. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
Well done. I really like the effect on the boat on the beach.
I love the effect/look of tilt-shift photography, and I’d never have guessed that these weren’t taken with a tilt-shift lens – great pics! 🙂
The cathedral interior was almost three dimensional. Like it best of all. Very nice job.
Love it! Great job. I especially like the Naxos miniature and the boat pics!
Thank you for sharing these photos
These are much, much better than most images I’ve seen that were post-processed to the tilt-shift look. (Want to teach me?)
Happy to! It’s really easy.
