      I can complain about the frame and proportions and where is the lil bit of the apartment onthe right? , but pretty successful for a first miniature trial ;)

      Me? I love it! I need to do some shots at dusk. Imagine if you could light a real model that well!

      this is quitw a nice fake ! you used only ps or some plugs as well ?
      its def. effective!

      Yeah, just PS, no plugins. Quick mask the area you want to keep in focus in QM mode by using gradient tool. Then use Lens Blur (inverted) to blur out from the selected area. Fiddle the brightness slightly using the levels tool afterwards. That sounds more complex in words than it is in practise.

      Fun subject for a tilt shift! I especially like the river and bridges in the background.

      Thanks. It's hard to select a photo to do this to successfully. It kinda has to be an overhead shot, with very few definable people, otherwise it just doesn't come out right. This just happened to one of the few suitable shots I had.

      Nice job with the editing. I love fake tilt shift. It's so fun to do and really not that hard in photoshop. Great job.
