tilt shift photograph of houses in the snow

Have you heard of tilt-shift photography? It’s a technique that makes pictures of real scenes look like pictures of fake scenes. The top photo is by B Tal; I’m not sure who took the second one. I found both on Smashing Magazine site. I’d like to experiment with this technique. In addition to a bunch of other examples, there are also some tilt-shift tutorials on the Smashing site.

The top photo looks like where I was yesterday – Ft. Lauderdale – and the bottom one looks like where I am today – back home in Minneapolis. P and I had a great visit with his parents down in Florida. It was a vacation that really felt like a vacation.
