Does Anybody Remember Tilt-Shift?
Funny how quickly things pass. But I still love tilt-shift. My method for creating fake tilt-shift images is very, very simple and fast. Just go to Bing maps and select Bird's Eye view, then blur all but an oval of the image. Time it took to make this image of Gießen, Germany, (one of my homes on my childhood tour of the world growing up as an Army brat) was about 1 minute total. (Click for a better effect)
