Tiltshifting Effect

Here's an interesting effect I recently learned (click photos to view larger and more detailed versions):

It's called "tiltshifting", a very neat trick which somehow makes a normal photograph look like a 3D miniture, kind of like pieces to an elaborate train set. I'm new to it so some of these are better than others but it's really fun... so expect more!

Btw, a few of these pictures were taken by my father in Japan.

Thats very cool. Sort of mesmerizing. It reminds me of the "Hitchcock shot" which he famously used in Vertigo- when he is zooming in on the center while the sides fall back. I think he did it by moving the camera backwards while focusing in.
