Took this photo in a mall and decided to try some tilt-shift type editing on it. Let me know what you think! Best viewed large (click on photo).

    Very nice! Lots of fun to play with, huh? I tried the same effect on my Real Train image, but I really like the diorama look you got with the mall. Terrific colors, too!

  • Thanks Kevin! Your train turned out great – funny how this effect can fool people :) I want to try more of this but you really need to take pics with this in mind – high perspectives, wide angle. Time to go shooting!

    Ha. Horton Plaza? I got so lost in the aesthetics I nearly didn’t recognize it. Brilliant.

  • Yes, this was Horton Plaza in San Diego :) Thanks for the comment!
