I think Tilt-Shift photography is simply the coolest. I even have an iPhone app that instantly transforms normal photos into retro miniatures, which is admittedly awesome. But I want to be able to do it on my own in Photoshop. Here's my first attempt, a miniature Manhattan! I learned the basics here and it was so easy (you do have to know Photoshop though). Now I'm off to experiment.
